Take out the trash; make sure this movie is with it!

"Unfortunately, there were no reviews for this movie when we decided to rent it on our TV. I can see why now. Nobody's wanted to waste their time on comments--they'd already spent an hour and a half of their life they couldn't get back. But my husband and I felt obligated to forewarn any other potential victims. We only continued to watch the "movie" until the end because we paid $3.99 for it and are cost-conscious. This has to be one of the worst group of "actors" we have ever seen. Possibly flunkies from acting school who, after a hard night of drinking, grouped together to make a movie (since they couldn't get hired by any other means within the industry), possibly funded by a government earmark. The only one who had any semblance of acting skills was Ms. Betts, but don't make too much out of that. Don't waste your time or money on this disaster. It was most definiitely a horror in its own right, but not in the way I'm certain they intended. There are better things to do in life, even if it is a household chore. I would rather re-grout a bathroom than watch a similar movie."
Bad but not necessarily terrible

"This was an average low budget horror film. Unfortunately, "average" within the low budget category typically means not at all worth your time. That pretty much sums it up, but I have to admit it wasn't necessarily painful to watch. A group of students decide to shoot a film at a now closed mental institution hoping to investigate rumors of paranormal elements, as well as evidence of supposed military-led abuses on prisoners. What happens is far more mundane. Despite the official movie description, the paranormal does not play a role in this movie. Its a very simple story of an abandoned mental institution inhabited by a former patient who happens to be a machine-like mass murderer. To be fair, there a few instances where the paranormal is very obliquely implicated (e.g., locking doors), but rather than exploit that potentially fruitful nuance, the movie strictly focuses on the killer in a goofy mask. So if you like the basic slowly hunt down people locked in a building type of story with not that bad acting, consider a rental."
