Way Better Than Expected
7 August 2011 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

While traveling across country with her fiancé, Beth (Tabrett Bethell) wakes alone in an isolated clinic to a mother's worst nightmare. Just how far will she go to save her child?

Let me say first of all I had the lowest of expectations for this one. I look at the cheesy cover, lack of known actors, the plot description... and all I can think is that this is clearly going to be a knockoff of "Turistas" or "Hostel". Which, as it turns out, is completely not the case. It has some elements of "Turistas", but is a far better film, with a healthy dose of "Battle Royale" mixed in.

My instinct is to fault the makers of this film for saying it was inspired by true events. Almost all books and movies are inspired in some loose way (because it only makes sense you would write about what you have experienced). But this film was not inspired by true events except in the loosest way possible. There are simply too many improbabilities.

In fact, the film is full of plot holes. Why does the one woman know the farm so well? How does this happen without the cops stepping in? Where are all the other women's husbands? How did they find so many women pregnant at the same time? How are freshly surgeried mothers so energetic? And it gets weirder at the end when more is revealed. So do not try to make sense of it, because that is your first mistake.

But yet, I found myself fascinated and drawn in to the story, waiting for each new twist and turn. As much as I found it hard to believe and wanted to dislike it for being far-fetched, it was entertaining and had just enough mystery to make the audience think. Thinking movies and horror together? Oh my!
