An injured man (who happens to be on the run for one reason or another) is brought to the local hospital in the middle of no where by the local sheriff. It doesn't take too long before things start to become a little crazy. The sheriff is a little bit flakey due to a recent tragedy in his life which he shared with his estranged wife who happens to work in the hospital. One of those crazy incidents shakes him up a little so in order to get some fresh air and call for back up, he steps outside and soon realises that the hospital is surrounded by some cultists. The dangerous type with sharp knives. Which in fairness is perhaps the friendlier option compared to the walking mutations that stalk the corridors of the hospital.
Reinforcements show up with their own agenda as the small group of people are left to try and work out just what the hell is going on. All is explained throughout a descent into hell featuring plenty of symbols, tentacles, mutants and blood. It appears that someone has been dabbling in the occult.
The CGI is kept to a bare minimum whilst all the blood and creature effects are done the old school way and do look rather neat. It has the look and feel of a good old fashioned horror/creature feature from the 1980's, never a bad thing if done correctly. Cosmic horror from the other side awaits........
Throwing the viewer straight into the action, it opens with a couple struggling to escape from a rundown drug den, in the middle of nowhere, with their would-be-killers hot on their heels. From there we're soon transported to the local hospital where the majority of the action takes place. After a brief introduction with the various characters (the hospital is soon to relocate hence only a skeleton staff still remain) the film quickly descends into craziness. At this point it's worth mentioning the SFX, despite being limited by a low budget the effects are pretty decent in particular the various monstrous characters we meet along the way. In fairness there were times where I hadn't a clue what was going on, but if anything this helped to maintain the nightmarish quality which The Void strives so hard for.
Although in no way is it a character-driven film, it does well in providing back stories for the key characters which prevents The Void being gratuitous for the sake of it. The cast are all pretty decent, and go about their business well.
If you're looking for an entertaining and gory horror film, you could go far worse than The Void. Those that can overlook the limitations of a small budget will find an intelligent horror flick which has more than a passing nod to 80s classics such as From Beyond et al.
After a violent opening, the film slowly builds tension from the point Officer Daniel Carter delivers a wounded man to a rural hospital. Discovering that the building has been surrounded by cultists, he and the skeleton staff are trapped within an encroaching nightmarish, Lovecraftian hell. The villains here are driven insane by pacts made with entities older than the Christian God and this is successfully conveyed through some horrific physical effects that are reminiscent of Clive Barker and John Carpenter in their prime. Highly recommended.
