While investigating a call in an abandoned house, Frank Williams finds a woman brutally blinded, but is attacked by a huge psychopath with an axe. Frank shoots the criminal in the head, but has a severed arm.
Four years later, Frank is relocated, working as a guard in the County Detention Centre. He goes with some convicts to the Blackwell Hotel, an abandoned place since a fire burnt the last two floors, with the purpose of cleaning it, preparing it as a shelter for homeless; in return, the criminals will have their sentences reduced.
During the night, inmate Kira is kidnapped by the deranged killer that collects the eyes of his victims, while the rest of the group are stalked...
First off, if you are expecting anything other than a generic stalk and slash movie, you're not going to get it here. But if you want a fun movie, with some inventive kills and a neat villain, you're not going to get that either.
What you get is a basic rehash of Friday the thirteenth, albeit without the mothers revenge part, and a villain you feel very little sympathy for, and come to think of it, anyone you feel sympathy for......maybe the rat in a couple of scenes.
The characters are a who's who of stereotypes, and you can more or less guess which ones will die, and which ones will survive.
It has a very basic feel to it. It's not scary enough to be proper horror, nor is it over the top enough to be exploitation.
It just happens, and then finishes, without really doing anything to entertain.
