Based on the true story of a Kentucky hospital where 63,000 people died, Death Tunnel follows a group of college kids who have to spend a night in a haunted sanatorium. An upscale college initiation party strands five girls in the ' Within the five floors of an abandoned hospital built in 1910, haunted by five hosts of its tortured past. As the students, one by one, become victims of its tragic history, they soon uncover a shocking link they all may have to its past - a five hundred foot, underground body chute built to remove the dead bodies of its patients. When each door opens up, new terror and each corridor leads to unimaginable horror and the only way out is through the Death Tunnel.

Death Tunnel is a story that begins in familiar horror territory: a college students' initiation ceremony in which they have to spend the night in a haunted house, in this case an asylum, with their preceptors monitoring them through CCTV and radio. However here the plot turns into something more refreshing, particularly with its haunting references to the White Plague, and the (often very eerie) ghosts of those who had suffered.

There are a lot of shades of "The House On Haunted Hill" and such movies here, not just an asylum with its own memories, but in the gritty filming. Unfortunately some of that was lost slightly with the filming panning outdoors occasionally, as one loses the sympathetic 'claustrophobia' effect building up with the protagonists.

There were a few other things that niggled me a little, such as the time frame sequences. Chopping up a film and flashing backwards and forwards so that you gradually get the history and background of the story at the same time as you're watching the present, is not an unusual format nowadays. But the sheer speed in which it was done occasionally became a little confusing. The characters were not all that clearly defined either; in fact their "Plague-era" alter-egos were much better acted and more clearly defined than the pretty-samey college kids that had started out.

Nevertheless, it's a good watch and although there are some ideas clearly lifted from other familiar places, it's a notch or two above a lot of its contemporaries, and worth having a look at.

Format: DVD
Five girls. Five floors. Five hours. And believe you me, it will feel like every second of five hours before you finally reach the light at the end of the tunnel that is The End. Now I knew going in that most people hated this movie, but I still wanted to see it, dadgummit. After all, five sexy coeds in a haunted sanitorium can't be all that bad, can it? The answer is a resounding Yes - it can and is that bad. This isn't the kind of bad movie that totally amateur filmmakers might go out and shoot over the course of a weekend, either. It takes a lot of hard work and effort to make a horror movie this wretchedly awful. Apparently, it helps when the producer and director dress like Axl Rose. The direction is terrible, jumping back and forth between the actual initiation and the leadup to it for at least the first half of the film and leaving a number of logistical questions completely unanswered. Still, the brunt of the blame must fall upon the writers of this incoherent mess, for they truly deserve to be run out of town by a mob of pitchfork-wielding villagers.

Kentucky's Waverly Hills Sanatorium serves as an ideal setting for the horrors that were supposed to be unleashed here (in fact, the most interesting thing on the whole DVD is the descriptions by cast and crew of some of the spooky things they really experienced there), but Death Tunnel does no favors to the very real history of this medical institution. The filmmakers reportedly used some actual EVP recordings in the movie, but, unfortunately, there is no explanation as to how these were obtained.

At least the five girls aren't bad looking at all, especially lead actress Steffany Huckaby.

BORING! I was not impressed by this movie at all. I don't usually write bad reviews, but I had to after I watched this to stop people making the same mistake I did!! The storyline was weak and a little confusing at times. There were NO scary bits at all. I mean NOT 1!!! I watched to the end thinking that it might get better or the ending will be good. I was wrong - The ending was terrible!!! I would not recommend this film at all!!!

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Oct. 2014
Format: DVD
1928, Kentucky. A horrific disease known as "The White Plague" claimed over 63,000 lives. A monstrous sanatorium was built to isolate the infected and play host to bizarre experiments in desperation to find a cure. Unable to cope with the large amount of corpses, a five hundred foot underground tunnel was constructed for the removal of these bodies, hiding the enormous death toll from the rest of the outside world. This was called "The Death Tunnel".

The above opening salvo from Death Tunnel and the stories doing the rounds about spooky stuff happening during filming, are significantly better than the actual film. All things are in place for a rollicking haunted building movie, a genuinely creepy location with a bleak history (The Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky), a young and pretty cast lining up to be terrified and continuing stories of real hauntings in the vicinity. What transpires, sadly, is a desperately derivative picture made worse by a group of film makers who on this occasion are out of their depth.

The writing doesn't give the characters any depth to begin with, and then they are thrust into the horrors of the sanatorium and we are supposed to invest in them. Tension is in short supply as the same old same old routine of the girls walking around scared quickly gets dull. The editing and intrusive camera work shows a rookie director (Philip Adrian Booth) let loose unsupervised, making his film seem more like an over extended rock video by some Death Metal band. There's no pausing for breath, something which makes the haphazard structure of the plotting even more baffling. While of course screeching levels of volume are over used throughout as Booth and company crib from a number of other - and better - horror movies.
