Meanwhile, Rachel's boyfriend and student of medicine Liam seeks her nearby the night-club. While trying to escape from the facility, Rachel discloses the truth about Dr. Brown and St. Joseph.

When I picked up this bargain bin movie ( $1.99 USD new ) I was expecting a cheap knockoff of "Final Destination".
I was a bit surprised that there were almost no references to the other movie at all. This film can be rightly called a fairly original concept.
As far as the movie it's self, the videography was decent, and the lighting was OK.
I had an issue with the editing. A lot of scenes seem way too short. As soon as the plot point is revealed, the movie jolts to a new scene.
The acting was all over the place, ranging from deadpan, to completely out of character, or not appropriate for the situation.
One glaring example is the boyfriend character, who seems completely disinterested in his girlfriend ( main character ), though his dialog suggests he is suppose to be very concerned, and "dropped everything" to try to find her.
The story line it's self is pretty good, though due to poor directing and / or script, parts of it can be slow. There was some actual suspense built up toward the end, though most of the movie really didn't get me too "invested".
As far as the main antagonist, the Grim Reaper, when they reveal him at the end, he looks ridiculous! It looks like some one with a cheap rubber mask, and rubber foam glued to their costume.
If they didn't have the budget for a half way decent costume, they should have left the Reaper in his robes. The undead from "Evil Dead 3" are a lot better looking.
The sound effects the Reaper made got on my nerves also. No matter what surface he was walking on, it would make the generic "walking on metal grating" noises you hear in quite a few older video games.
On a final note, the mausoleum were the opining credits and the scenes near the end were shot at, look exactly like the one from "Bram Stoker's Dracula's Guest" .
