As the trailer shows, a woman and her boyfriend get into a car accident after which he is whisked away by unknown paramedics to an unknown hospital. From there the movie can be broken down in 2 major parts. For the first hour of the movie she struggles to find where he's being held and some haunting memories of hers are alluded to. The rest of the movie is comprised of her having to face her dark past if she wants to save her boyfriend from an uncertain fate. I say uncertain because the immediate danger to him is never made clear. The whole movie lacks the sense of desperation and urgency that horror movies depend on. It really felt like everyone involved was merely going through the motions in front of the camera. I never got attached to any of the characters. There is a twist at the end that should invoke an emotional response from the viewer but I felt nothing. The direction and camera work is lackluster, as is the make-up and special effects. The entire thing has a made for TV feeling attached to it, which isn't surprising given the cast. There are plenty of moments where the viewer is supposed to jump out of their seat but they are executed so poorly that I found myself looking at the flaws in the make-up and totally detached from the story. Believe me though, this isn't the worst movie ever made. I'd call it a good idea in a mediocre movie. You won't hate yourself for watching it, but there's plenty of better movies to watch first. Oh, and I love nudity as much as any other man but the one nude scene in the movie is so out of place I actually wish it had been taken out.
5/10 -- Mediocre
