In a twisted social experiment, eighty Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia, and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company's intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed.
John Gallagher Jr.,
When Sheriff Deputy Carter (Aaron Poole) discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road, he rushes him to a local hospital with a barebones, night shift staff. As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane. Trying to protect the survivors, Carter leads them into the depths of the hospital where they discover a gateway to immense evil. Written by
The hospital used in the film was actually a former high school - Sir James Dunn Collegiate and Vocational School in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. The school had been closed for a while and was demolished not long after filming was completed. See more »
A hospital wouldn't keep narcotics like morphine sitting on a shelf like that, DEA regulations require that they be kept in a locked cabinet or drawer separate from other medications that are not controlled substances. See more »
I am shocked, seen too many "80s feel" horror, or so called, which are either poorly filmed or the acting is painful.
Just heard about this and thought "oh not another" but happy to say this is very good, its not going to win any Oscars for acting, the script is not Shakespeare, but what it try's to do it does well.
The practical effects for the most part are great, The Thing/Hellraiser type, on a very low budget.
Story is in realm of Hellraiser/Phantasm/Event Horizon, seen those? you will get my drift.
Its ending does leave questions, but also left me wanting to know more, and I would happily watch a second film if they stick to this way of making them, maybe a bit more money spent but keep away from CGI.
Overall I am impressed, they should be applauded for going old school and doing it well.
