Frequently Bought Together
Horror in which a clinical trial at a remote facility goes terribly wrong. Among those who sign up to test ProSyntrex's latest drug Pro9 are Adam (Aneurin Barnard), Joni (Alex Reid), Carmen (Skye Lourie) and Jed (Oliver Coleman). The trial is highly secret, with no-one, including the staff who administer injections, aware of who is receiving the drug and who is in the placebo group. Shortly after the trial begins it becomes clear that something has gone wrong. There are unexplained disappearances, bizarre silhouettes and screaming from behind locked doors. Locked inside the facility, unaware of the true nature of events, the surviving patients and staff must band together to try and find a way out of the nightmare.

Not wanting to give anything away, but this drug has some pretty bad side effects.
Actually that's all you need to know about this film. It's ok. It's not particularly original or innovative, and the ending is a bit of a let down, but it was ok to watch once. The acting was not bad at all. It's a british film, which I did not know before I watched it.
As for the content, there is a bit of swearing, no excessive gore bit quite a bit of blood, and a small amount of nudity which is in no way sexual!
I would give this film 3.5/5
The acting was also good
Good film :) glad I bought
Plot basically finds a group of human guinea pigs enrolling for a two week trial at a remote research centre. They are to be injected with a new drug called Pro-9, and after their two week stay they will pocket a cool £2000 each. The group consists of the needy, the inquisitive, the bold and the stupid, and sure enough once night falls and the lock down commences, some of the participants get a reaction to the drug...
It follows the standard trajectory for such a set-up. Characters are introduced, we get to know them for half hour, you quickly learn who the A-Hole is, and then it's drug reaction time and we are thrust into murder death kill and locked in siege panic. Tis a time for heroes, maybe even some interesting revelations? Who will survive? If anyone? Maybe there's a twist in the tale as well?
For his debut feature film Ian Clark has played safe and utilised the low budget wisely. The pic shows him to have great promise in the horror genre, his keen sense of claustrophobic atmosphere is evident and carries the story well, and he knows how to construct a horror scene. He also gets more than solid performances from his lively cast, where Alex Reid (The Descent/Wilderness) is a reassuring presence.Read more ›
It tells the tale of seven volunteers who sign up for a clinical trial of a new drug, at the out of the way "Limebrook" clinic. It has a nice set up; the isolation piece is credible, given what they are doing and the introduction of the characters (name, age occupation), revealed as they are each in turn given the first dose of the drug, is a clever way of introducing the characters without a lot of unnecessary chat (though it does have a draw-back later).
They are taking part in a "double blind" clinical study, which means neither the participants, nor the researchers know who has been given the drug and who has been administered placebo. A few hours after the trial begins the first patient administered has a very bad reaction to the drug. Then second patient administered then attacks the doctor running the trial - so he can't help.
The remaining patients spend the rest of the film wandering around the corridors or barricading themselves in various rooms, most slowing succumbing to the drug's affects.
There is rather a lot of "shaky cam", but the acting is fine, as these things go, with the standout performance from Steve Evets, as the unemployed "Morty", who seems to be an old hand at taking part in, ahem, "clinical trials".
There are, however some major flaws and too much is left unexplained, which I think is down to a poor script, rather than any deliberate plot devices;
For example, they find a list in an office saying which of the remaining five has been given placebo (and so will be fine, phew!Read more ›
The atmosphere and tensions in the isolated medical complex are well realized and in some ways "The Facility" itself is the real star of the film. Imaginative cinematography and superb sound design coupled with a very fast edit all help create an uneasy and claustrophobic world. Steve Evets as Morty and Amit Shah as Arif deliver the stand-out performances though Aneurin Barnard and Alex Reid are engaging and credible leads.
In summary The Facility is a very well crafted, disturbing and exciting film. It is so refreshing to see a horror film firmly based on reality with a totally plausible story and no zombies, vampires, extraterrestrials, paranormal activity or monsters of any kind.

This is a really good movie, more of a chiller thriller than a horror but it does have a good twist at the end.Published 18 months ago by Dave n Linda
