Critic Reviews for The Facility
Not much more than "28 Weeks Later in a hospital," but surely that sounds like fun.
This feels like Clark re-treading familiar territory without bringing anything fresh or exciting to it.
the odd thorny moral dilemma is thrown up along with the contents of the patients' stomachs, but amidst all that running about in the dark, very little real light is cast on the film's putative subject matter. Everything else is strictly by numbers.
Audience Reviews for The Facility
The Facility: Eight volunteers find themselves fighting for survival when a drug trial goes horribly wrong. The idea itself is very creative and interesting until the end. First off the scare and fear was not felt, the actors were good but the story was a mess. Adding a few jump scares and extra violence would have done a lot for this film to really just get the idea across. I don't mean bloody gore everywhere but enough to put fear in the audience. Secondly I don't like the ending it makes the rest of the movie unimportant and meaningless. Overall it was boring and had many problems but so much potential.
Not exactly new to the genre but but there are some interesting parts with some sense of dread but as a whole just below average.A 'if there is nothing else worth while on you could do worse"type of movie.
Pretty well acted and a premise involving enough to push through, but in this instance the low low low budget really hampers the ability to frighten. Specifically, volunteers for medical testing who begin to show dangerous behavior and are quickly (and rightfully) separated from the others, though when that happens, the threat level just doesn't seem that precarious. You can't generate more than a low level of danger by looking at some crazies through a remote camera. One scary encounter in the doctor's office stands out, the rest doesn't perform well enough for success. To see people creeping around a medical facility facing a constant nerve-tingling threat of attack, the sequence in "World War Z" shows you how it's done.
