Verdict on The Institute

The Institute is a horror thriller that dives into the world of fertility treatment. It shows how desperate a couple can become if things haven’t been going their way after a tragic loss. This ends up going through the creepy ideas of a new doctor, that others believe is perfect.

The film gets to show how scientists will have outside-the-box ideas. Even if things end up going down a darker path. Sadly, this gives away most of the twists early on, while focusing more on putting in sex scenes over building the story.

The movie uses green screens for some scenes, which come off badly, taking us completely out of the scenes they are used.

Final Thoughts The Institute is a horror movie that misses on any scares, tension and just comes off sleezy.
