Compelling and Interesting look at Central State
23 October 2007 | by pjohnsonfamilySee all my reviews

I had seen this film last year when it came out at the IMAX. It was a sell out crowd. I really didn't know what to expect but had heard rumors of Central State since I was a child. This place was a mental institution that was closed in the early 1990's. Several stories have circulated about abuse and haunting but I wanted to see first hand what was going on there. The opening of the film the director talks about making family movies and being on the grounds for that purpose when things started to happen to the crew and to the director. The first shot of the face in the curtains is really creepy, it looks like an old man screaming.

I really didn't know much about the history of the place and the old footage form the sixties gave an excellent view into the past of Central State. I didn't know they had all those patients, 3000 or more. some were children, and only nine doctors.

I thought the tunnels were especially interesting, over nine miles of them. I couldn't imagine being in there like they did in the film. That looked very unsettling to me.

I liked all the ghost busting things in the film and the paranormal people were really interesting to watch and were available at the screening to talk with.

I Just went back and saw this again at the IMAX a year later and still found it interesting. I like the way it was edited and the music was really good.

I am a fan of things that are cutting edge and this is a film I think that is cutting edge. I didn't know the DVD was out but I am going to buy it.
