A bunch of college freshmen are housed in a dorm that was originally an insane asylum, where the doctor in charge perpetrated horrendous experiments on young patients. Soon enough, he's back from the dead, knocking off the college kids one by one. What starts out as a ghost story devolves into a standard slasher flick, reminiscent of many other such flicks. I wish it had stayed a ghost story, but it is evident that the filmmakers lacked the budget to go that route, as there are virtually no special effects. The first 20 minutes provide a good buildup to what then becomes a disappointing knockoff of the remake of THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, minus any viable spooky effects. The mad doctor simply shows up and kills, and then repeats the process. The college kids are all stock characters. although it's interesting to note two of the female leads are dead ringers for Claire Danes and Angelina Jolie. Couldn't hurt.
