A Jason Statham wannabe and a girl enter an abandoned looney bin or someplace where they find an electric chair thingamabob rigged withbones and shit. The girl sits in it and dies then the guy gets put in an un-abandoned looney bin until some old dude lets him out in order to fulfill some demonic blood prophecy.
OR DOES HE!??!??!?!?
This movie was thoroughly mediocre. I really didn't like the Statham-esque main guy's constant commentary to the audience as it pulled me out of the movie every time it happened and made the BIG HUGE UNEXPECTED TWIST small and minute and completely expected. Yes there was lots of fake blood and an Alien-meets-hourse-skull demon but no real good gore aside from one sequence where you see wires snake under someone's skin in their arms. After that, it's just OK. Not sure I should've sacrificed the extra sleep for this but oh well. It just makes me that much more hardcore I guess.
However, the short that played before it - an animated film named Raymond - was awesome. I hope it's on youtube or something. you should totally do a search for it. it's only 5 minutes but it's cool and hilarious and awesome. Maybe my favorite short of the fest.
