Lionsgate strikes again with low quality release
7 January 2010 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

The abandoned location of the prison is decent. There is one very good effect involving a nail gun driving nails into a moving hand that is seamless, I don't know how they did it. There is one pair of nice looking breasts in the first few minutes of the film. There are a few nice exterior sunset shots. There are also about 4 good looking shots--none of which oddly are in Loinsgate's trailer for the film.

That's it. Those are the good elements here. Super bad elements are the way over lit everything. It looks like old Scoop lights aimed at people. Acting is pretty bad but the writing doesn't deserve much better. Villain is stupid looking fat guy who almost trips coming down a set of stairs near the end. All the gore, other than hand effect is poor and editing doesn't help movie at all. Other comment about the generally very low video quality is true, have not seen shot on video stuff look this bad in a number of years. It is all nicely in focus though. Audio quality is super bad too, much post dubbing of noisy outdoor scenes early on, though once they get inside that stops and none too soon, it's like a foreign film before that, so much is dubbed. Lots of supposed Jump Scare moments none of which work. Padded credits at front and back to get the "film" to a feeble bare minimum lenght of 85 minutes. They did have a crane for some of the shoot but it's not very well used. This is barely passing grade film school stuff at best.

So why does Lion'sgate continue to pick up stuff like this and put their name on it and hurl it at the horror audience? This one was finished in 2007 and only now in 2009/2010 getting released so maybe they bought it long ago or made a poor offer that the producer's had to eventually accept. Why why why? Because they don't care or understand horror films they just push the crap out there, I guess they are counting on the increasingly bad SAW films to retain some fan base. Only THE ASYLUM puts out stuff with so much contempt for the fans and Lionsgate should know better. It's really a shame on them as a company to show now pride at all in their output. The producers of this made a pretty amateur movie, they may not know how to make a better movie, but Lionsgate produces theatrical films and inherited a large library of films of some note. It's shameful. Unless it's a SAW film anything with Lionsgate's name on it is a rip off for fans and also hurt the market, and those SAW films are going downhill fast.
