Storyline

When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants. As the shoot wears on, members of the crew exhibit increasingly strange behavior leaving those still sane realizing they need to get out of this place before they too succumb to the building's infectious hold, the only problem, the old hospital is not ready to let them go.

Somewhat enjoyable haunted hospital effort
8 October 2014 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Attempting to shoot a low-budget horror film, a film crew at an abandoned hospital begin to come under the evil forces that lurk within the building and must try to get out before succumbing to those dangerous forces.

This is a rather disappointing and somewhat problematic effort that really should've been much better than it is. The fact that this one contains some rather impressive elements that should've made this one work wonders is one of it's better elements, as there's a lot to like here. The best feature is the hospital itself, which is par for the course in these types of films, as the look here is rather dirty, dingy and completely covered over with mold, dirt and years of neglect that has that feeling of being completely abandoned and home to abundant evil right from the start. This is the absolutely perfect setting for a film such as this as it absolutely looks the part quite well and certainly seems like the perfect place for somebody to go as mad as they go in here with the main part of this showcasing the staff her succumbing to the whims of the forces around them which really scores quite well here as this manages to feature the kind of actions and attacks that make for quite a thrilling time. The way it manages to include both the hospital attacking the staff as well as the group attacking each other makes for quite thrilling moments as well with this one delivering several incredibly enjoyable scenes in here from the impressive stalking in the corridors to the shock surprise in the boiler and finally the main chase through the different offices that's quite a bit of fun here throughout. However, there's still some big, big problems here that hold this one down somewhat as the first big reason here is the fact that there's just no real action at all in the story. The main focus here is on the movie shoot, itself a huge problem when it's all the behind-the-scenes goings-on without really showing what movie they were filming so it tends to just meander along with hardly any any real focus at all for the majority of it's running time as it leaves out all sorts of potentially interesting moments to spend with all the nonsense backstage dealings like their relationships and such that don't really have any interesting features about them while it just eats up running time. The fact that they're so clueless about the transformations and possessions that have afflicted their friends is none the better, making it seem like they're just completely clueless about the world around them and really deserve what comes their way simply because of what happens to them during the course of this. Finally, the cheap special effects on display really comes back to haunt this one as the deaths are really lame, not all that scary and are quite illuminated in how lame they really are very easily. Such a shame that these flaws ruin what was a potentially enjoyable effort.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity and mild drug use.
