A young doctor must fight for his life when a crippling car accident leaves him at the mercy of a deranged nurse in this thriller from cinematographer-turned-director Joe C. Maxwell. It's hurricane season in Louisiana, and as the rain falls from the sky, Dr. Zack Peters and his female traveling companion are forced off the road in a blinding flash of lightning and metal. When Dr. Peters awakens to discover that he has been rescued from the wreckage by a strange nurse (Savannah Smith Boucher), his momentary relief soon turns to terror when he discovers that his sadistic savior and her brutal brother Raymond (David Parker) have no plans of letting him get out alive. With his traveling companion missing and the screams of the other "patients" filling the decrepit old house, Dr. Peters enlists the help of another of the nurse's desperate captives in finding his lost friend and escaping the bayou hell.
A genuine frightener
The horror movie that keeps you in suspense is the horror movie that's worth watching and watching again as this ones a keeper. Its the usual theme of Control in this case the owner of the retirement home which just happens to be where a real doctor finds himself being taken after an accident.When he mentions the word Social Services to the owner because he thinks some of the rules are being bent then that's enough to keep him there as a prisoner. The idea really of keeping him there is so he can sign death certificates etc to make the goings on there seem normal-and there's plenty of deaths once the patients have been robbed of everything. Its not unlike real life-today there's plenty of abuse in retirement homes
