When police officer Carter (Aaron Poole) discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road, he rushes him to a local hospital with a barebones, night shift staff. As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane. Trying to protect the survivors, Carter leads them into the depths of the hospital where they discover a gateway to immense evil.

Loved it! This is pure, good old fashioned, Lovecraftian Horror! A fantastic return to practical effects as well.

The story isn’t exactly original, but kept me entertained throughout the run. Sufficiently creepy, scary and uncomfortable in its gore elements, this is one that the novice horror viewer will have nightmares about. Taking a tablespoon of Hellraiser, with a serving of Prince of Darkness added for a good blending of scares.

There are no false jump scares, good special effects, and decent acting. Loved it!
