Storyline

Re-formed by a coded message to their web site, a group of animal rights activists set off to free an imprisoned colleague from a terrifying ordeal. Their rescue mission leads them to a disused lab, but what should have been a simple raid turns into a series of twisted and mind bending incidents where the free and the caged switch places, in this tormented psychological horror.

Only a little bit lethal...
26 January 2004 | by moviechic_CarrieSee all my reviews

Synopsis : A group of animal rights activists have a rescue mission go wrong and one team member gets trapped at the location. A year later the team receives an encoded message from the friend and they join together to break him out of the facility he is trapped in. To their dismay, they locate an abandoned laboratory that seems to have a mind of its own, and the team starts disappearing one by one.



Plot : The story was a very interesting concept but I feel it lost something in the translation from paper to screen. The film had a decent budget but at times it didn't seem like the budget was used to it's full capacity. Definitely more of a science fiction feeling type of movie but it also had it's horror moments. It can be enjoyed by parties that enjoy either genre.



Cast/Characters : Not a Blockbuster line-up but some familiar faces on the screen with decent acting skills. Some of the scripting though made a few on the screen less talented than what they normally would be. All personality types were covered with the team, almost too formulaic.....nothing tossed in to liven up the story.



F/X : Nothing too cheesy, which is good. Just enough gore to keep ya going and no moments when you are sitting there saying "I see the guy behind the curtain". Of course, there could have been more gore to give it more of a horror feeling but working with what they gave me made it a-okay.



Pace : They spent a little too much time at the beginning of the movie setting up each character and creating a story that really had nothing to do with the result of the film. I feel they should have just skipped to the 2nd act and started the movie there, explained some things better that they skipped and it would have been perfect.



Jekyll's Final Thoughts : It was a good experience to see this film at the Nevermore Film Festival, especially with it being a British made film ; no usual dribble with American casting, etc. If you have the chance to see this movie, try and catch it. I give it a 3 star rating.
