As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane.

The premise of this movie at first feels like a simple creature feature. It's standard horror fare set in a hospital, but this movie goes a little higher concept in its aspirations. There is a lot here just below the surface. The creature effects were some of the best I've ever seen which is unsurprising when you find out that the two directors were respectively a makeup artist and an art director for many years before. All the effects look like they were done practically and if there is any cgi it's unnoticed except for one unfortunate green screen scene. The action was explosive and cathartic in nature. Mostly this film just gives a sense of dread, a sense of insignificance. It doesn't feel like there is any way that these people will survive what is being thrown at them. I'd call it the best Doom movie we will ever get because it does give a good sense of what our collective imaginations have decided hell is like. The triangles and the cult aspect were also welcome additions and the aesthetics it adds subtly changes your reaction to the film in a way I would not have expected. This was one of the best theater horror experiences I've ever had and one of the best modern horror movies I've seen.
