Storyline

Everyone has an Expiration Date. Four applicants, with their own hidden agendas, are accepted by a mysterious corporation to participate in a medical experiment at an isolated testing facility. With no instructions and no supplies, the human lab rats must fend for themselves and figure out what part of the experiment each one is playing. When the corporation becomes aware that a pregnant intruder has infiltrated the facility, they send in armored guards to clean up the mess. However, loyalties are tested when the guards learn the truth about the experiments and begin to turn on the corporation. Hidden truths about the different players and why they all signed up for the tests are revealed as their situation becomes increasingly dire. Written by Anonymous

A South African film with a Difference
4 September 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

The story focuses on a group of participants who sign up for a mysterious medical treatment that promises to cure all their ailments. After taking a sedative, they wake up and they are all cured, but like all things in horror films, when something is too good to be true for the characters, it generally is.

The film uses stylish cinematography (The fact that this was shot on a consumer stills camera baffles me) and gritty surveillance footage to weave a tale of strange government testing.

What Alastair Orr and his production team has done here on this budget is nothing short of amazing. This does not look like a film that was made for R500k (That's less than $70K). It looks absolutely amazing. The acting is generally pretty decent, the make-up is great. The script kind of loses itself a bit but the general concept holds strong.

This is not your typical South African film and its great to see filmmakers having the balls, even if they don't have the budget, to do something a little different in a country that only supports crappy Afrikaans films that would be laughed off the international stage.
