Storyline

When American tourists Sofia, Carl, Michael and Belle come to Australia, they are looking forward to the traditional Aussie experience - surf, sand, and sun. But when they decide to go on a ghost tour at former psychiatric hospital Ravenswood, set deep in the Australian countryside, they are going to get much more than they bargained for. When the guys get trapped in the haunted building by the evil ghost of the Doctor, they do a séance to talk to the spirits to let them free. But they release the ghost of the doctor's last victim, and she possesses Sofia. She begs the others to protect her from the doctor. But as the doctor starts killing them to get to Sofia, they must fight for their lives against a brutal enemy hell bent on their destruction. But they never knew who the real enemy was until it was too late. Written by JD

Trivia

A lot of the film was shot on the shoulder of the DOP, though a favorite setup was referred to as the 'Jolly,' where the camera was mounted on a crane arm, which itself sat on a dolly track. This allowed a greater degree of freedom in the camerawork, especially in small rooms. Very little of the film was shot on a tripod. See more »

Quotes

Carl: Hey man, you got one choice. You can show us around this shithole or we take our money elsewhere to Kentucky Fuck Chicken, which would be better than the shit your shovelling anyway.
Sofia: Carl, you promised.
Emma: Zack, put your testosterone away before you poison yourself.

Best Part Was the Ending Theme
18 August 2017 | by serina25801See all my reviews

After reading the description on Redbox, this film seemed to be right up my alley for a cheesy, asylum horror flick. I was really looking forward to watching this movie, but I should have known by the opening scene that this film was going to be a jumpy mess that made no sense.

After the opening scene, it introduces the main characters and all of them have the personality of a wet paper bag. Actually, that's unfair. A wet paper bag is still useful after it dries. The only character I found myself liking was Zach, played by Jock Campbell. He seemed to be the only person to bring any type of life to the character he was given. The acting is stiff at best for everyone else, though it does occasionally pick up here and there.

Now for the story: Wait. What story? No spoilers, but the main female, Sofia (Madeline Marie Dona) kept going on about this whole "wait for sex," "six months," "you know why," thing. But that's just it. It NEVER explains the time frame. It gives some backstory to her why she doesn't want it, but what was with the whole "six months" thing? Like...I kept waiting for that to come into play and it never did. And all of her friends keep saying how she's so "strong" and all this nonsense, but we never see it. You can't just keep saying what a character is. You have to show it.

That's the point of film. SHOW, don't TELL.

At no point throughout the movie is she ever shown doing anything noteworthy. She never tries fighting off the spirit, she never stands up for herself, she never does anything. Honestly, I found her and the boyfriend character to be the least interesting in the entire film and she was a main focus. If you're the main focus, you have to be interesting - entertaining. Just...something.

Most of these characters could be replaced with balloons with faces painted on them and you'd get the same amount of energy.

Look, I love cheesy horror flicks. Those dealing with mental institutions and possessions are usually my go-to movies for some fun and entertainment. This should have been a perfect movie for that and it wasn't. It honestly annoys me that I wasted the $1.69 to rent this thing.

The ending theme was pretty good, though.
