Borrows from better found footage horrors, but still manages to work
26 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The film opens with the requisite text informing us that a TV documentary crew had went to film in an abandoned asylum and while they were never found, of course their footage was.

We then see this team of ghost hunters arrive at their destination, locking themselves in, hoping to catch some supernatural phenomena at the site of a mass murder 40 years ago, where seven nurses were raped and killed.

Immediately they start to be killed in gruesome fashion, one by one, at first unnoticed by the rest of the crew, who wander the building, encountering ghostly voices and sounds, as well as objects that move by themselves. Their video cameras offer little illumination into the dark that seems to permeate every nook and cranny of the decrepit institution. The mood and atmosphere are actually done very well.

Eventually of course they discover that they are being offed, one by one, and desperately search for a way out of the building.

The film seems to borrow heavily from another found footage movie, REC. No less than three characters are pulled out of sight of the camera, and into the darkness. Another scene from REC is also copied. Grave Encounters seems to have been the template for this film, as the theme is also copied, including the look of the asylum.

I can look past these facts though, as the film never really dragged or got boring. Two of the three female stars had nude scenes, and there is a decent amount of blood and gore. It kept me entertained throughout.

All in all worth a watch. 6.5/10.
