An Unexpected Psychological Thriller
25 September 2007 | by coryshpprdSee all my reviews

I thought it would be a typical monster flick, with a bunch of people stuck on The Rock and getting picked off, one-by-one. Turned out to be more thoughtful, suspenseful and interesting than I imagined, and the setting of Alcatraz made it all the more creepy.

You have to pay attention to follow what's happening to these people, and who the killer or killers are. The history about the island is pretty interesting too, which is weaved throughout the film.

It's a low budget movie, so some of the acting is so-so, but there are several stand-outs(like the guy in the wheel chair, the professor, and the girl who played Tiffany.) Not your typical horror film, but definitely with its frightful moments, and the whole "trapped" feeling of Alcatraz (which they actually shot parts of the film on).
