This was a low budget thriller movie about some people waking up on a mental hospital with memory lost. But they are not alone there.. Weak acting and story. You can watch this movie tho if you havent got any better ones..
I've seen a lot worse but this movie just wasn't that good. I really liked the plot but something went wrong-probably the acting and the writing. It really had a lot of potential. If you're a horror fan you should check it out.
I can only recommend this to those with a high tolerance for B-movies.The movie opens to a woman who couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Her reactions coupled with inexplicable head/facial twitches are just funny. The only thing that kept me watching through the opening scene was her very nice legs... The movie kinda sorta picks up with the addition of other characters, but very definitely only kinda sorta. (As you read the preceding sentence, keep in mind that I'm a Lingusitics major...) And once the viewer finds out what really going at the facility, the story goes down the craphole.
For a low-budget, it wasn't too bad. It didn't pretend to be anything that it wasn't, didn't try too hard - had to ignore some plots points, but there's some suspension of disbelief in all movies. What let it down was the atrocious acting, especially considering this has some seasoned TV and B-grade horror actors. Watch it is you have nothing better to do.
An intriguing and tense set up takes a downward turn with the appearance of a CGI spook straight out of Scoobie Doo. Apart from that glitch the visuals are good, and the setting is a reasonable excuse to keep hot actresses in their underwear for most of the movie.
Yes the shadow monster chasing them around the entire movie is a bad CGi monster, but you get to see James Marsters in his underwear a great deal of the movie. And that alone makes up for the bad CGI.I think if the CGI shadow monster would have been done a bit better and maybe better blood used (it was obvious it was red paint and not cough syrup for the blood like other movies use) then maybe I'd give it 4 stars instead of 3.5
Get past the opening with the scrawny, semi-naked, plastic-lipped lead & its ok. With an inkblot creature, a brunette James Marsters & the always sexy Tony Todd (candyman... Candyman... CANDYMAN!!! lolz)
