Serious title fraud, mostly worthless, some fun in last 5 minutes
The film is being sold in the U.S. as a Haunted House movie, even the menu designs show a house with burning windows and people with straight razors. Well none of that is in this movie! Shot in 2002 finally seeing a video shelf in 2006! Written originally like 20 years before that this is a film that escaped, briefly, not released. Was the only way to sell it to sell it as something it wasn't to this degree!?! Given the "quality" of the film, perhaps would be a cynical answer and the answer the producers must have decided was their only option to get the film off the shelf. But this is really shameful.
The film almost entirely takes place in rather poorly decorated warehouse interiors trying to be some sort of hospital. Lots and lots of talk, the medical machinery when it's shown is very shoddy indeed. Brief nudity sort of in one love scene with Denise Duff should be mentioned as one of the few reasons anyone may not be totally angry to waste time and money watching this. She plays with her glasses a lot, that's as much character development as she explores.
However, there is a mutant sort of two headed retard character/monster that is pretty well done and during the final 5 minutes there is a lively sequence involving him. The rest of the film is a dull cheap waste of time.
Whole thing is shot on HD, and thought it doesn't scream video, it doesn't look especially good either, some of the lighting is really bad but it's in focus, just lacks any style or sense of claustrophobia or building tension. Talk talk talk. Cheap, cheap, cheap. A long wait for very very little result I'd think for all involved and for all those who have to watch it.
