Plot: The scientist Susan Carter is researching the rehabilitation of addicts using an experimental drug in her rehab centre. After her death, her idle son Brian Carter is forced by his friend Simon to travel to the property that he had inherited. Brian and Simon travel with five other friends to the spot and they find that the center is actually an ancient monastery and they have to spend the night. Sooner they are murdered, one by one, by creepy creatures that live in the place.


Verdict: Nah


Story: We start with the over clichéd horror storyline or a child inheriting a property from a deceased parent to which they had a broken relationship with. What follows is a group of over the top stereotyped characters entering this haunted property in this case a hospital. The characters all have their own issues including a really annoying girlfriend/boyfriend who haven’t spoken and the whole but why along with a couple who love/hate each other. The twist coming you can see a mile off because it is literally force feed to you in the opening sequence. This ends up stealing from nearly every film that has used the base storyline and it have the 3D slapped on, well I missed any 3D action. (2/10)


Actor Review


Sean Clement: Brian Carter the son  who inherits the property and wants nothing to do with it, he reluctantly goes along to the property and ends up lost in the maze of secret passages with his friends as they all get separated and picked off one by one. Never really convinces in the lead role at any stage during the film. (3/10)


Simonetta Solder: Haley Gable caretaker of the property who invites Brian up to go through things after his mother’s death, also plays tour guide telling the group about what happened at the hospital. Has an air out mystery about her which you can tell early on that she might be important to what is going on. (3/10)


Jordan Hayes: Vicky ex-girlfriend of Brian who comes along not sure why but she does, spends most of the film moaning about not being called and does enough to make sure Brian risks everything to save her. Typical supporting girlfriend performance, she pushes our lazy hero to go out his way to save someone but only her. (3/10)


Director Review: Antoine Thomas – Really struggles to create any atmosphere throughout, but really doesn’t have too much to work with. (4/10)


Horror: Doesn’t create any real horror, little jump scares and no build to any incidents. (3/10)

Thriller: Doesn’t pull you in at all. (2/10)

Settings: Uses the isolation idea which is always good for a horror film. (9/10)
Special Effects
: Pretty bad special effects all CGI used with the creatures. (3/10)

Suggestion: This isn’t one to be watching; you have plenty of other films that are much more enjoyable. (Avoid)
