SPOILERS......................................................
"The Shining meets The Conjuring"
What an effing cheek, and a barefaced lie at that.
This is a sub par Hostel-wannabe with a plot that is unlikely in the extreme and delivered cack-handedly with lots of flashbacks etc, so annoyingly you have to go and watch the beginning again once you've watched the thing to try and fathom the start.
Kaylee DeFer is pretty good in her role of tortured heroine and the acting is actually good for this sort of thing,but the whole thing's annoyingly derivative. Plot is nicked from the far superior "House of Whipcord".
Don't know about you, but i've seen loads of films like this now.
For goodness sake let's have something new.

PS.... Hands up all those who knew that Christian fundamentalists torture their adversaries with power drills.

Michelle (Kaylee DeFer) was the impaired driver of a car that killed three people. She is at a rehab hospital run by Rachel (Elisabeth Röhm). Michelle wants to move on with her life, while Rachel believes she needs to deal with her issues and purge her sins. Rachel sets Michelle up with a job at the "Darkroom" run by Larry (Christian Campbell) who we later find out is her son. As it turns out Michelle gets imprisoned in a room with a breakable wooden chair, pictures of herself in a bra, and an analog TV with bad home movies. As we all know, psychotic Christians like to use power tools to cleanse people of their sins. Spare the power drill, spoil the child.

The film is light on originality and decent dialog. "Who's a naughty girl?" is a question you ask during a playful spanking, not an amateur appendix operation. Much of the film is told with flashbacks. If you are waiting for "Hostel 4" or "Saw 7" you might want an appetizer.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Brief nudity (Kaylee DeFer) Torture.

I am a lifelong fan of horror and I am always looking for the next "scare the crap out of you" movie, DO NOT believe the hype as this movie is definitely not it.
I have been more scared wondering whether my wheely bin will make it to emptying day on Friday.
Avoid at all costs.

Ok, first off i was expecting a ghostly supernatural flick, after all the box does say "the shining meets the conjuring" i don't know what film they were talking about but it wasn't DARK HOUSE.
This was more of a torture porn flick like the saw or hostle movies but not as good, bad acting and cheaply made.

Bad acting, and music that ruins any atmosphere by being too overblown. Comes across like a student film, edited by someone who has watched lots of horror films but learned nothing from the experience.
