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 "Scariest Place in the World." 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.

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.
IMDb ratings are rarely a true measure of quality for films, especially with a diverse genre such as horror, yet Death Tunnel's rating of 2.7/10 is very very appropriate. The brains trust behind this movie could have done no worse than learning from Brad Anderson's superb Session 9. Philip Booth and his brother Chris clearly love horror, but their subsequent genre films will need restraint and thought in equal measure. 2/10
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.
