After finding a strange Indian relic boarded up on Alcatraz, the research team studying the remains find themselves under attack by a strange curse affecting the others on the island and force them to battle it off to survive.
A pretty unimpressive offering, especially since this one had a ton of opportunities to be really great. The usage of history mixed into the storyline and the ramifications in the present is pretty chilling, and the infamous prison location where it all takes place is pretty unnerving. That said, there's not a lot else that it gets right. The quick pace means that it slowly builds up the excavation and research into the strange object that there's hardly anything happening, with all the stalking and killed crammed into the last half-hour of the film. The kills aren't that spectacular either, whenever we can see them, and the creepiness of the location isn't taken to it's most extreme here as the prison could've been utilized far better. These here hold it back quite a bit.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Brief Nudity and drug use
