Storyline

Trevor is a young man who has been sentenced to a long stay in a mental hospital after brutally killing his girlfriend. However, the longer Trevor is in stir, the more he wonders if the murder ever really happened, or if it's all just a horrible fantasy implanted in his brain by Dr. Ek, the sinister director of the asylum.

Trivia

When the producers found the house that was to become the primary shooting location for the film in South Central LA, an agreement was reached between the mansion's owner and the producers whereby the production could use the house as a base of operations and shooting location for several months, at no cost, in exchange for major renovations to the crumbling estate. Writer Marshall took up residence in the house and assisted the art department in creating the sets over the next three months. See more »

Goofs

Near the end when Trevor and Faith are making love, you can see the actor is wearing a flesh-tone g-string. As they are sitting and talking in the follow scene, you can see the "string" part on his hips. See more »

Quotes

Douglas: No one that you ever knew, or loved, or who loved you, or anyone who was ever anything to you that made you think that they might be as real as you are, ever proved that all six billion of the rest of us aren't all in it together against you.

16 July 2002 | by MovieMannySee all my reviews

There's alot to like in The Attic Expeditions. It's a stylish low-budget film done with alot of care. It's very involving and does hold your attention. Having said that I wish that the script could have had at least a tighter handle of some of it's components. I really enjoy films that are abstract and you have to figure out (Mullholland Drive being a terrific example of this genre)but when not one single aspect is grounded it just leaves you completely confused with not much to help you solve the puzzle (or at least come to your own conclusion). The acting for the most part in this film is also a problem. With the exception of the always likeable Seth Green, the rest of the cast is extremely weak especially Andras Jones as Trevor. His acting is so wooden and unconvincing to the point of distraction and this is a major problem considering he plays the main character. The rest of the cast doesn't fare that much better, either they are utterly stiff or overtly overacting. Still, even with these problems the film holds your interest throughout and it's technically quite strong. The film must also be commended for going it's own original way instead of being another schloky rip-off of teen slasher flicks. A mixed bag but worth a look for genre fans.
