A group of teens/young adults have a party in a notorious former asylum, and strange things happen. Where have you seen that before? Actually it is not simply strange things but horrible ones. If you are into special effects, you will find something worthwhile in this film, but when you've said that, you've said it all.
Apart from Stephen Lang who plays the priest, no one who appears in "The Asylum" was born when "The Exorcist" was released, but all horror buffs will recognise the influence, especially in the possession of the first of their number.
Is this a demonic spirit? Apparently not, at least not in the conventional sense, but it all gets a bit confusing. The big question is will any of them get out of there alive, and what will they tell the authorities if they do? Gripping stuff. Well, not really, there is such a thing as overkill.
