The film opens with a young boy witnessing his prostitute mother being murdered...and that's it for the back story really so I hope that is enough reason for why in his teens, Kenneth (for that is the boy's name) likes to film the corpses of girls in the morgue and cut himself.
Anyway, we are introduced to a group of medical students who tick all the generic teen horror boxes, of which my favourite character has to be the pasty goth girl who wears a black & white striped top so that she resembles a mime. Only of course, a crap mime that speaks and forces us to endure her awful dialogue.
So the students go out partying, drinking and drug-taking and they encounter morgue boy Kenneth at a club. They all pick on Kenneth except of course for token 'nice girl' Catherine, who Kenneth has a crush on.
Somewhere amongst all the cliched dialogue, Kenneth is given some drugged booze and falls into a coma.
Gasp. What to do? Should they call for an ambulance? Should they use their medical training to help Kenneth? Oh, I know. How about if they all decide that they will get in trouble so the best course of action would be to dump Kenneth outside the hospital and then do a runner.
While Kenneth is in his coma, in one day Catherine does enough research to allow her to craft a wonder drug that she thinks will help him. One injection later and...
Adverse Effects! Out of body experience! Murder!
If you think that sounds interesting, it isn't. The film is just a huge waste of time.
Dull, uninspired, uninteresting and instantly forgetable.
If you want to watch a good film about a guy in a coma, using his powers to kill people then watch Patrick [DVD
