Storyline

With a pocketful of drugs, Nick West takes out his girlfriend Sammy, for a good time. When they explore an abandoned asylum, the discovery of a bizarre device, a cross between an electric chair and sadistic fetish machine, transforms drugged-out bliss into agony and despair. After Sammy is brutally assaulted and murdered by unseen forces, Nick becomes the number-one suspect. Years pass and Nick, who had been locked up in a mental hospital, is released into the care of eminent psychiatrist Dr. Willard, who is hell-bent on exposing the truth behind the killing. Accompanied by Dr. Willard and several of his students, Nick returns to the scene of the crime. However, the decrepit asylum hides a blood-drenched secret.

Nick West: [speaking to the audience in voice-over narration] As you can see it all got a bit silly right here. A girl with her puppies out, a demon, old banana over there in his pajamas. Is this what I promised you? Are we prick teasing you enough? Is this what you came here to see, all my brothers? Look at this poorly written, badly acted bullshit! Is there any truth in this B-movie banality? No! No, there is no truth. Believe no one. Believe nothing. You freaks and geeks. You bloodthirsty morons, fuck ...

amateur and unoriginal
29 March 2009 | by megamuirsSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of English film and have been excited by recent films like The Descent, and Dead Mans Shoes in the horror genre; and I hope that filmmakers with the sort of vision that makes these films possible get all the accolades and funding that they require to continue taking English film forward.

however, this film and its director Adam 'I'm a t**t' mason, makes me embarrassed to have been born in the same country. To say this film is conceited would be a massive compliment, it attempts the self aware horror take a la 'Man Bites Dog' where the protagonist psycho talks to the audience and even at one point says 'is this what you want, this badly written, terribly acted horror movie' or something of the sort and I agree whole heartedly. The acting is shallow, the 'big plot twists' are tedious and I found it difficult to care about the characters at all.

I implore that you do not watch this movie unless you are staving off suicide with terrible self involved movies
