Storyline

While on a class observation trip at a local mental hospital, young psychology major Abby Jones (Christine Evangelista), has a chilling encounter with high-risk patient, Harmon (Dominic Purcell). She returns home for an evening of normal study with her two roommates unaware of the darkness shes awakened within him. Later that evening a storm moves in, while Harmon escapes leaving a trail of death, as he makes his way toward an unsuspecting Abby. Meanwhile, Abby and her roommate Lynn (Carly Chaikin) receive a visit from Carter Thomas (Scott Elrod), the neighbor cop across the street, warning them about a local peeper lurking in the area.

Brilliant....
24 April 2013 | by rubyseffronSee all my reviews

Brilliant movie,With some brilliant shots, great graphic's, excellent and interesting use of sound, the movie looks a million dollars more than its relatively low budget and massive credit goes to campion murphy for showing that you can make so much more from such a simple set up. All of the actors embed their characters with a complex credulity that works well in the scary and surreal situation that they all find themselves in especially faith fords character,It also should serve as an inspiration to horror movie makers as it proves that with creativity and imagination you can make a movie on a low budget which looks and feels like a Hollywood horror but is ten times more original. all in all i would definitely recommend this film to family and friends. This years 2013 must see.
