Okay Indie Conspiracy Horror
22 April 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A young woman running along a deserted road is pursued by men in black . She runs in to a woodlands and is shot by one of the men carrying a snipers rifle . As she lies dying in the snow she is then executed by a bullet

After this more than adequate opening hook we cut to a university lecture room where a tutor discusses stem cell research: : Yet another morally ambiguous topic . Is it ever ethical to sacrifice one embryo to save ten , twenty , a hundred , a thousand individuals ? " He goes around class asking this question and the students are perplexed and indecisive about giving an answer . This is something fundamentally wrong about this reaction . We are talking about an embryo . Something that is not developed in to any human form . In other words it's not yet human and doesn't qualify as a human being . It's an embryo not a human so asking questions like sacrificing something in order to save other human beings as if it's the same equivalent as a human is a non sequiter .. You can guess this is an American film and one hopes that in real life the average American student is more cerebral than the muppets seen here who are no doubt registered with the more right wing elements of the Republican party

I did perhaps notice a slight agenda with this film . One of those students then signs up for a medical experiment with an organisation calling itself " Systems and science " and they're the bad guys . There is of course nothing wrong with a horror film making political comments and I did enjoy 28 WEEKS LATER which featured an American taskforce repopulating a devastated land and then having to destroy it in order to save the wider international community . Hardly a subtle subtext but one that is recognisable and appreciated at the same time . As the characters of the experiment are introduced someone makes a joke about Noah but there's no blatantly faith good science bad soapbox shouting and I probably over analysed this a bit too much . It is of course a low budget indie horror thriller and the message carried is " trust no one especially where the government is concerned " . You've seen this type of idea before and because you've seen it so many times it's not stand out in any way and if you don't like horror movies you won't like this . It does manage to generate a few scary moments and meets expectations
