The friends Emmett, Freddy, Marie, Kevin and his reluctant girlfriend Jessie decide to spend the Halloween night in an abandoned hospital. Meanwhile, the younger Allan meets the old friend of his father Arlo Ray Baines and asks him to help to find his vanished sister Meg in the same spot. The two groups meet each other in the mental institution section on the haunted third floor and they find that they are trapped in the place. Jessie has visions from the past and discovers that the ghost of Jacob, a former patient that raped a little girl and burned the hospital, is trying to escape possessing their bodies that melt down with his evil spirit.Written by

The director has said in interviews that the Arlo Ray Baines character (played by Dig Wayne in Boo) starred in five different (fictitious) "Dynamite Jones" blaxploitation films: Meet Dynamite Jones, Dynamite Ignited, Dynamite Jones vs The Dope Pope, Dynamite Jones vs Count Pimpula (which was seen partially in Boo), Dynamite Jones vs Frankenfro (which is referenced in the deleted scenes on the Boo DVD).

Emmett and his dog are riding in the elevator and it stops on floor 3, he is clearly terrified with his flashlight close to his body but when the scene changes to the elevator opening up, we see Emmett with his arms down at his sides with a neutral expression then it cuts back to him terrified again with the flashlight close to his body and when it cuts to a shot of his dog, his hand with the flashlight again is down to his side.

So bad ... there aren't even words... but I'll try.
I give this one 2 stars because there are some commendable special effects and the director (editor?) has a good feel of how to put the footage together to get a nice "jump" out of you. Also... the set (an abandoned hospital) is nicely done and quite spooky (if cliché).
EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT THIS MOVIE SUCKS.
I read someone on here say that the acting was good. Dear god in heaven. There is NO ONE ON THIS PLANET who would say that other than someone who worked on this movie. I couldn't BELIEVE how bad the acting was. What gets me... is when I see acting this bad... it makes me think that ANYONE OFF THE STREET could act better than these people... but then I think.... thats EXACTLY who these people are. Wannabes off the street who have NO BUSINESS ACTING. My god. It was so painful I stopped the disc 3 times over a course of 3 days. I simply couldn't get through it.
The writing is so bad... I just cant even think of words to describe it. Trite. Contrived. Boring. Uninspired. Unoriginal. I honestly... feel so drained of my life energy by this movie... I don't even want to talk about it anymore.
If you are a TRUE HORROR FAN. PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Heed my warning and AVOID THIS DRIVEL. I wish I could think of something as bad as this to compare it to... but... this makes movies like... "The Unnamable" and "Street Trash" look like "Citizen Kane". Do yourself a favor... kill yourself instead. It will be less painful...regardless of the method you choose.
