Storyline

The 8th Plague is the story of a woman named Launa who is investigating the disappearance of her sister, Nikki. Nikki had gone camping in the mountain town of Halcyon Springs and never came back. Becoming more and more frustrated, Launa realizes that she must find her sister on her own with the help of Mason, a mysterious local man with a shadowed past. Their search leads them to an abandoned prison called Halcyon Ridge Correctional Facility. Very soon after arriving within the stone and steel walls they are exposed to an ancient evil that had been lying dormant until its recent disturbance. Subsequently they learn the terrible truth about what happened to Nikki as well as the impending plague of darkness that intends to spread and reclaim the world. Written by Anonymous

Unnecessary gore killed the protrusions of style
28 October 2006 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

In fact I loved the first half. Modern editing, good eye, slow pace, some humor, good soundtrack selection, as well as good color processing. Sweet and cleverly employed references to 80s horror flicks. So, there was a style.

Then suddenly they lost it, when buckets (literally), fountains of artificial blood and bloody porridge came to scene. To be honest, I wouldn't call this a gore fest either - there were only two buckets poured, somewhat three fountains and one bloody porridge. Hell, who let the youngsters into the kitchen? Check, please, I'm leaving.

If you're a gore fan - go for it, but don't complain then about slow pace and longish shootings on landscapes and buildings. If you're looking for some genre inventions or surprises - miss it, there're hardly any. It's not spooky either.

I would only recommend to genre lovers of high tolerance, who can stand the absence of plot and unnecessary gore for the sake of style. Camera is worthy most of the time, sounding is nice sometimes as well. Views of abandoned jail are very moody.
