| He's not sick; just a little less engaged.
One key factor in good horror flicks is some nudity. Another key feature is lots of blood. In this case we get both. A real schizo with a penchant for sex covered in blood and looking for more action. Yippee! Add to that a mad doctor (Peter Stormare, who is perfect in the role) who turns his patients into flesh eating zombies, and horror fans have something to root for.

There is even a Nurse Ratchet, and a Hannibal Lecter in the film, as the director attempts to pay homage to other horror films.

As you might expect, the central character is Jack (think Cuckoo's Nest), who gets himself committed to find out if his crazy sister (Kiele Sanchez) is OK. Jack (Jesse Metcalfe from "Desperate Housewives") soon finds out that things are not OK, and joins with Dave (Kevin Sussman) to get his sister out.

Loved the ending!
