A bunch of kids go into a prison to find a missing person and meet up with some funky demonic evil. Simple enough plot. I caught this thing in the theater a couple weeks ago. It was a midnight showing and I wasn't doing much so I figured "what the heck". It started out a little slow, but once it got going, it really kicked into gear.
I'm a big time horror buff, and I've been watching a lot of low budget horror flicks lately... Mostly they leave me feeling irritated. I've gotta say, this one was kind of a breath of fresh air from all the other B-flicks I've seen. It really gives you the goods; from blood explosions to guts to unexplainable, yet very enjoyable prison sex. The acting was surprisingly good for a B horror flick... for the most part. The main girl was awesome, especially after showering in demonic blood ha ha.
I was especially impressed that they were able to do what they did with so little relative money. The set design and a lot of the camera work didn't strike me as being uber-low budget.
The Gore FX and makeup were really cool too, look out for the eye scene! The theater was only about half full when I saw this, and when a couple of the gore moments pop up there was definitely some giddy applause from the crowd. I found myself joining in, cheering the gore haven on the screen.
An academy award winner, No, but a good horror fix on a Saturday night... perfect for any horror fan.
