"Unrated" my ass!
20 January 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

There is nothing like an old prison to add to the creepiness of a horror film, especially if there is some old murders that are at the root of the horror.

Looking at this from just a detective thriller, it is very interesting as Michael Paré looks into a couple of suicides related to the prison. He hooks up with the prison psychiatrist (Jenny McShane) to investigate.

Lots of creepiness and excitement for those that like Ring-type horror.

Always love a chance to see Danny Trejo.

They had to add that irritating rap during the credits! Biggest disappointment: Just who in the world runs out of a shower screaming at the sight of the ghost and takes the time to put on a bathrobe? You have to be kidding me!
