Storyline

A terminally ill patient, wakes up in a dark, decrepit underground chamber. An IV pumps an unknown liquid into his body and adorning his head is a crown of wires. His last memories lead him back to the hospital where doctors had recently discovered his illness. He didn't even have enough time to inform those closest to him of his untimely death sentence before ending up here. Behind the walls someone is lurking, and Ayden soon finds out that a psychotic killer, bent on performing strange, immoral medical experiments, is holding him captive. But there's more to this man than meets the eye, as Ayden will learn in time. What starts out as a sadistic medical experiment quickly becomes an excruciating race for Ayden to survive both his captor and his illness long enough to simply tell his shrouded family goodbye. Written by Chris Schwartz

Anything is better than this.
21 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

If you gave a monkey 5 bucks, a typewriter, and an etch-a-sketch it could make a better film than this...and probably do a better acting job too.

Granted I only made it through the first 20 minutes of this movie before totally giving up, but I doubt I missed much.

Low budget doesn't have to mean low quality, but it does in this case. The plot is flaky at best and all attempts to build suspense are just plain boring. Everything starts off interesting enough with the audience wondering, "Hey, why's he in a cardboard basement?," but from the opening line of "Nurse," it's obvious that every expense was spared on the cast. I'm willing to forgive a lot of things in a movie, including a set made of old refrigerator boxes, if there is something, anything else to make it interesting. But there's nothing here. I have no doubt that people worked very hard on this film, and meant well, but it's all in vain. I don't recommend you waste your time watching it, even if all you watch is the first 20 minutes.
