Customer Review

on 28 February 2013
The Facility was shown at various festivals during the second half of 2012 and I saw the premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival where it was chosen to be part of "The best of the Fest" programme. The film relates the story of a clinical trial that goes terribly wrong when the drug being tested, PRO-9 produces horrific side effects. The Facility of the title is the remote medical centre to which the volunteers are invited and the action is compressed into a few hours at the single location.
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.
