Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
In 1989, in Washington, the friends George, Max and Ricky are aspirant musicians that play in a band in their leisure time. They work as cooks in the Sans Asylum to earn money to pay their bills, including renting a studio to record their songs. The asylum is located in an isolated area and is monitored by a team led by the security guard J.B. The deranged inmates are criminals and they take pills to stay calm. One day, George has a concert during the night but J.B. asks him to arrive early in the morning to receive the supplies for the kitchen. George leaves his girlfriend Lynn without sleeping and heads to the asylum. While he is preparing the meals for the insane inmates with his colleagues, there is a storm and a power outage in the area and the monitoring system fails. With the mental hospital in the darkness, the inmates led by the cruel Harry Green attack the guards and staff. George and the other kitchen workers hide from the horde of violent madmen. Will they survive? Written by

Josh Dallas was cast as George and was ready to shoot the film in November 2010, but unfortunately production had to move their dates to the middle of January 2011. Dallas couldn't make it work with his schedule and had to leave the project. Rupert Evans replaced him. See more »

I had never heard of this film previous to viewing it...It was late and I decided to browse Netflix and roll the dice on what seemed like a guilty pleasure, the premise seemed interesting especially after just completing the video game "Manhunt". I am glad that I did, not knowing what to expect but knowing that this was going to be a low budget flick most likely filmed in a single location with unknown actors, I was right...But thats exactly what worked for this film, it seemed authentic, it was gritty and at times intense. It reminded me of simpler times, a throwback fro the 70's/80's hey day of horror...No message to convey, no agendas, no plot twists or found footage gimmicks here, just outright terror. It was a nice ride and would recommend any horror fan that grew up in the 80's to check this out, you will not be disappointed.
