And all I can say is that it was madness. Not sure if any other reviewed was at the same showing but they actually had to call the ambulance because a few girls passed out and were hyperventilating. Lets just say it was pretty gory. The plot itself was pretty basic. A couple of young musicians work in the cafeteria to make ends meet. Bad storm results in a power outage. Then all the inmates are running amok since the doors are opened due to the lack of power. Total mayhem ensures. I enjoyed it. The story like I said was pretty basic, with a few twists here and their along with some suspense. I gave it a 7 because I like the mayhem. It made me feel like that's what would happen under those same circumstances. I am sure you will enjoy this film just don't watch it if you have a weak stomach, or after eating a big meal lol
