Original set up, nice and realistic, nothing great though., 6 December 2012
Author: Nitzan Havoc from Israel

Just finished watching The Incident (Asylum Blackout) after coming across it in one of the Horror lists here. It's a pretty decent Horror films with a very original set up story - very much like Zombie Apocalypse only without the zombies. The "bad guys" being insane convicts in an asylum made it all the more realistic and horrifying.

Film was good in all aspects, but didn't shine. Acting was good (especially on the convicts' part, I've seen the inside of a psychiatric ward before and I can tell the director must have done some very thorough research!), screenplay and script were OK, all in all a decent film.

As for the ending - a swing and a miss. I like it when an ending is open for interpretations, but only until the final moment. At the final moment - the answers are to be given so the audience can go "ahhhhh now I get it". The ending here was simply too puzzling for my own personal taste.

Like I said film was good, didn't shine except for the convicts' acting and the original story. Fun to watch though.
