A group of friends coming back from Mardi Gras in New Orleans suffer through a car accident on route 53. An ambulance shows up and takes them all to Mercy Hospital (which is anything but) where they meet the unorthodox doctor Benway (Robert Patrick, 'the Unit & T2), a nurse with a terrible bedside manner (Jenette Goldstein, Near Dark & also T2) and two orderlies who do most of the grislier work.
This slasher film, while much better then the only previous '8 films to Die For' movies (the abysmal "the Broken") was not without it's own problems. The film moves at a steady clip when it gets going and some of the gore is impressive. But it's also quite predictable, has a clichéd storyline and under-developed characters. The actors all did a fairly good job, yet I didn't really care about any of them. I will concede that it's better than the previous films that Gierash & Anderson have worked on, although they've been (partly) responsible for Mother of Tears, Toolbox Murders, & Mortuary. So the fact that it's better is no mean feat.
My Grade: C
Lionsgate DVD Extras: Audio commentary with Adam Gierash, Even Katz, Jace Anderson, Ross McCall and Jessica Horowitz; Behind the scenes of the operating room featurette (20 minutes); Miss Horrorfest Web-isodes (running 58 lame minutes in total); an alternative ending; a combo trailer for the 8 films to die for 3; and trailers for "A Haunting in Connecticut", "Crank 2", "Punisher: War Zone", "the Transporter 3", "Weapons", "Midnight Meat Train", & "Saw 5"
