Trivia

A sanatorium and asylum are actually two different hospitals. Sanatoriums were typically used to treat patients with tuberculosis, not mental health issues which would be treated at an asylum. See more »

Goofs

(at around 55 mins) The character who's doing the talking in front of the camera is demonstrating how the motion sensor works if anything should pass by it (an alarm sounds). But when the camera guy enters the room passing through the motion sensor, no alarm sounds. See more »

You've Seen This Before
1 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is another of umpteen hand-held cam films that follow the formula of a bunch of young people encountering malevolent supernatural forces that they initially are sceptical of. The movie then follows the pattern of: "What was that?", "Did you hear that?", "Quit fooling around Joe/Jane!" until the crisis point arrives in which everyone is saying "Oh my God!!!" Chaos then ensues as the POV hand- held goes ballistic until the inevitable jump to black. The End.

You have seen this before. However if you enjoy this genre this is a competent film, but it offers nothing unexpected. Which is unfortunate because what hakes this kind of film work is the apprehension of not knowing what is going to happen. I suppose so many of these films are made because they are cheap to produce and they are very likely to make a return on investment with even a modest audience.

I have certainly enjoyed some of this genre which was spawned by The Blair Witch Project, but this is nothing ground-breaking. Let's say this film is like a cheese sandwich; it's always great if that is what you are in the mood for because you know exactly what you are getting.
