Storyline

From the darkest annals of a heroin riddled group of addicts trying to shield the glimmer of salvation from the ink black pathway of lives soon lost, comes a tale of horror and survival set against a bleak and isolated landscape, far from any hope of rescue. Rocked by the gruesome death of one of their best friends, a group of teenage heroin addicts barricade themselves in an abandoned farmhouse in order to kick the habit. Things get out of hand when the drugs they brought with them for one last 'hoorah'; is more than they bargained for. They struggle to escape with their lives when one of them snaps and turns into a blood-thirsty killer out to get each of them, one by one. Caught in the middle of a menacing social experiment, the teens must overcome the murderous forces within the house as well as the threat that is closing in on them from down the road. With no where to run, they must face their greatest fears and fight for their very survival, or be overcome by the very storm they ... Written by Anonymous

Low Budget Horror with Junkies

Don't expect anything special in this, no surprises and a thin plot. A group of heroine addicts decide to lock themselves in an old farm house to all quit cold turkey but first they bring a big stash of dope for one last hoorah, before quitting. I have experience in these things & their idea was a bust before they even left, you know the old I'll quit tomorrow thing (100% failure rate). But to add an element of anguish, the drugs they pick up weren't exactly perfect, they have been chosen randomly by a scientist to act as a test group for his new drug, what better a test group than heroine addicts that shoot up anything with no regard to what else may be mixed in. I've been clean for 7 years and it got me thinking how little one thinks of their health when using, I guess I was lucky in a way.

Now back to the film, the scientist's experiment with animals had a very undesirable effect so he tries to saves his ass by collecting the drugs from the dealers he gave them to with bad results, the acting wasn't anything special, the characters were completely underdeveloped & I had no empathy for any of them, A minute didn't go by where I wasn't reminded of how low budget the production was. It was painful at times towards the end as I waited for the credits to roll. I wouldn't recommend this to any hardcore horror-thriller fans, but if you like watching grungy addicts in a disgusting backdrop it may be for you.It's your basic 3 star horror flick. Watch but be warned.
