A group of friends descend upon an abandoned monastery looking for a good time - only to find that once they are inside, they have been trapped by unknown, paranormal forces and soon become hunted by a army of undead monks who have a taste for fresh human souls. Now, the group must harness the mysterious forces of the monastery to escape the clutches of the centuries-old spirits. Written by
Oh, come on. This isn't a movie. It isn't even a short. The handful of people who threw this together by walking around a churchyard for a while with a video camera in tow weren't even trying. You often can't hear what the participants are muttering, and when you do it's so ear-punishingly redundant and awkward that it makes you grateful for the scenes in which the dialogue cannot be understood.
I've seen hundreds of independent horror projects, but this one scrapes the bottom of the grave. There isn't a single effective moment or legitimate idea here. Just a few friends loitering in the dark and trying to look scared while the guy running the camera attempts (often unsuccessfully)to keep them in focus.
They can't even hit the 70-minute mark without cutting in every bit of meaningless outdoor footage (trees, footpaths, etc.) they could muster up.
An appalling, indifferently slapped-together insult to your intelligence.
