While watching this one I wondered if I was the subject of the latest episode of "Punk'd". That is how bad this film was. I thought I was victim of a cruel joke. It could not be for real. It was either a joke or an entry into the World's Worst Film competition. Either way it adds up to a colossal waste of time.
As a man who has a twisted sense of fun, Nick West (Andrew Howard – Revolver) brings his girlfriend to an abandoned mental institute to do drugs and have sex. The fun ends when his date sits on a strange chair which mutilates her and she then disappears. Nick's description of what occurred is not believed, so he is taken for a mentally unbalanced person and locked up in a jail for the criminally insane.
Four years later a respected psychology professor, Dr. Willard (David Gant – The Red Violin, Braveheart), and his students bring Nick back to the scene of the crime to conduct a study on what occurred. They are looking for the truth of what happened and when they get close to it it is beyond what anyone could have imagined.
There are so many faults with this film it is hard to know where to begin. Suffice it to say that despite all that is wrong with this film it had a strange pull on me that kept me watching. It was sort of akin to watching the aftermath of a car accident.
