Dreadfully dull dreck from director Danny Draven.
17 February 2008 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Five attractive women compete in a reality TV show for a prize of $1m; in order to win, they must spend a night in a haunted building (wired up with numerous CCTV cameras) where they must confront their deepest fears.

'You have been forewarned' it says on the cover of my DVD.

Let me tell you that if the box for this pile of crap had a ten foot tall neon sign attached to it reading 'This film is awful', you will not have been forewarned enough. If, when you opened the box, a voice screamed 'Put this film down and walk away—you're wasting your life watching bilge like this!', it wouldn't be a strong enough deterrent.

I suggest that before being permitted to view this abomination, potential candidates should be psychologically tested for several weeks to ensure that their minds are strong enough to handle the dreadful direction, amateurish acting and risible special effects. They must be made aware that viewing such material will possibly be harmful to their mental wellbeing. An intensive course of watching extremely bad films would need to be completed, after which, the person should be informed that Hell Asylum is much worse.

Only then will they have been adequately forewarned!

Director (and I use that word in the loosest possible sense) Danny Draven takes an extremely derivative script (House on Haunted Hill, anyone? My Little Eye?) and a no-talent cast (only pretty blonde Stacey Scowley is forgiven, thanks to a cute set of dimples), places them in a truly unremarkable and unconvincing locale (asylum?... it looks more like an abandoned school), and delivers a horrible mess bereft of scares, decent gore (the FX make-up is bargain basement stuff, with some scenes featuring intestines that look like spaghetti), or female nudity (one girl runs around in her undies—but that's it!).

This is utter dross that fully deserves lowest rating possible.
