The Facility Review

The-Facility-reviewYear: 2012

Director: Ian Clark

Synopsis: Eight volunteers find themselves fighting for their lives when a drug trial goes horribly wrong.

My Quick Review:  I’m a big fan of horror movies using a group of people who do not know each other and putting them in a remote, often closed, location.  Movies like The Thing, Cube, Saw…..Quite often, the paranoia and distrust are bigger enemies than the surroundings or the monsters lurking in the dark.

The Facility tries to follow this path but it somehow feels half baked. The danger that our group of “heroes” are facing does not really seem life threatening and we always have a feeling that they could get away if the script was not prohibiting them of doing so.

So, for a low budget indie horror, The facility never feels too cheap but the unoriginal script and the lack of scares (all of them are in the very well made trailer below) can not help it raise above average.

My Rating: 5/10
