Evan values family above all else, and anyone who gets between him, his wife, and newborn son learns that the hard way. But when it comes to violent tendencies, it seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Jenn has washed ashore a small tropical island and it doesn't take her long to realize she's completely alone. She must spend her days not only surviving the elements, but must also fend off the malevolent force that comes out each night.

Matt and Kate buy an isolated house. While moving, they discover a strange room that grants them an unlimited number of material wishes. But, since Kate has had two miscarriages, what they miss the most is a child.
The quiet Rose works in women's fashion clothing, hoping to be a designer. A traffic accident damages her face. She gets experimental stem cell treatment, leaving her stronger and prettier than ever - but there's a side effect.
Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
Rose, a mostly sweet and lonely Irish driving instructor, must use her supernatural talents to save the daughter of Martin (also mostly sweet and lonely) from a washed-up rock star who is using her in a Satanic pact to reignite his fame.
A few borrowed elements but an unsettling watch nonetheless.
If you enjoyed "The Autopsy of Jane Doe", it's safe to say you'll find the premise for this one frightening enough as it's a tiny bit similar in its approach. Both films are pretty darn spooky in their own right. The Dead Center was good, though I found Jane Doe to be slightly better, this is still worth checking out. It definitely goes in its own direction once you realize where they are going with it, and you can sit back and try to figure it out.. (Though most likely you'll see where it's headed.) The acting is solid, the movie is well shot and the hospital setting makes for an eerie atmosphere. This really isn't anything new to be honest, but it held my attention and that's high praise for a slow burn, B horror flick. 6.75/10
