Storyline

With a pocketful of drugs, Nick West takes out his girlfriend Sammy, for a good time. When they explore an abandoned asylum, the discovery of a bizarre device, a cross between an electric chair and sadistic fetish machine, transforms drugged-out bliss into agony and despair. After Sammy is brutally assaulted and murdered by unseen forces, Nick becomes the number-one suspect. Years pass and Nick, who had been locked up in a mental hospital, is released into the care of eminent psychiatrist Dr. Willard, who is hell-bent on exposing the truth behind the killing. Accompanied by Dr. Willard and several of his students, Nick returns to the scene of the crime. However, the decrepit asylum hides a blood-drenched secret.

Reality is what you make it
2 May 2009 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This narrative story follows Nick, a troubled man who has been accused of killing his girlfriend. With no body to be found and only Nick's stories about a supernatural chair to go on, he is put in an asylum, where he spends a good four years. That is, until a prying doctor decides to take Nick back to the location, along with a team, to perhaps find some answers to what really happened that day.

Some people might watch this, expecting just any horror, but it's not what you get. In fact, this is more like the horror genres take on the absolutely brilliant "Funny Games", which plays with the audience's perception of what is real and what is not.

To me, the horror genre has been infiltrated by vile money-maker horror lately, and I haven't been excited about a new horror movie in quite a while. This one, however, really got my attention.

This movie isn't polished. It's messy and choppy, with some strange narrating and random jumps back and forth in time. This is also what makes this movie so brilliant.

Don't expect anything out of this movie. You will definitely get your reward in the end.
