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

Well done, effective South African horror film that has quite a nice wrap up.

This is by far one of the best films I've seen lately, not just in horror, but in also in the sub-genre of zombie mutation/insane experimentation. It's a film where the viewer doesn't quite need much more info than given in that four people respond to a newspaper ad for a medical experiment paying $250,000 for a five day stay in their private secure medical base. Two participants came looking for a cure & two came looking for a pay day. It's not long at all before the outright horror of it all boils to the surface and a nightmarish pace in set as these few participants fight to stay alive & out of the sight of some of the previous groups experimental failures, genetically mutated & filled with rage. Any issue or unrealistic thought that I may have had was all neatly wrapped up in a surprise ending that will no doubt leave any horror fan with a smile on their face. Also for a South African film with a mere $70k budget this film is produced very well, there wasn't any point or any scenes that suffered from budget restrictions. It's been a long while since I've seen a good horror/zombie film that I could actually give a good review to & actually recommend it as a rental choice to any horror fan and not for the lack of trying (30-40 forgettable films in the the last month alone). This one is a taker. 7/10
