In yet another undesirable slice of torture-for-titillation (think Hostel, Creep, but even less imaginative), a college student discovers that her dorm was once a notorious asylum. Later, a group of students stumble into an old restricted area on campus, awakening the spirit of a mad doctor who proceeds to torture them in much the same way he tortured asylum patients in the past. This kind of low-budget gore-fest tends to be unintentionally humorous, and it’s that lack of intention that makes it all the more despicable. But then if we didn’t go to see them, they wouldn’t make them. We’d encourage you to do us all a favour and avoid it at all costs.
