Storyline

Dana Milgrom (Shauna Macdonald) is a track coach and mother who's survived a near-death car accident, only to find herself paralyzed and trapped inside her own body. Forced to communicate via an artificial voice program and hooked to a breathing machine, she becomes convinced that a terrifying presence called Nails exists inside her hospital room. No one believes her - not even her own husband, who think she's experiencing a mental breakdown. As her marriage disintegrates and her grip on reality starts to shred, Dana fights to convince the doctors and staff that Nails is real and intent on destroying her. Written by Dennis Bartok

Trivia

The film marks a complete departure for Ross Noble, who plays male nurse Trevor Helms in the film. Since the age of 15 he's worked as a stand-up comedian, building an extremely successful comedy career over a number of decades. See more »

Goofs

The news article about the child killings at the hospital uses the same paragraph in the second and third columns, presumably to make the article look longer without having to create any additional text. See more »

You won't be biting your nails!
6 October 2017 | by pcart-85448See all my reviews

Very poor. I was attracted to this because I love a good horror movie, and it seemed to have a good cast. After twenty minutes of viewing it became abundantly clear a good horror movie was not what I was getting.

It was the same predictable, cheap scare (monsterous face to the camera with a sound effect - you know the one) wrapped around some dreadful acting. Ross Noble's performance in this was more akin to an early episode of Byker Grove than a feature film. And poor Shauna. Quite why she took part in this fecal fest, I don't know. Perhaps the electric bill was due.

The below par script; littered with exposition problems, poor dialogue, characters who you don't care for, a villain that makes no sense in a situation that makes no sense.

All in all it was pretty bad.
