This was filmed in some beautiful locations and it was also shot real well. That's about where my positive comments end though.
If you're trying to pay homage to a genre from the 70's and 80's, why would you throw in so much horrendous CGI? The movie starts with an awful CG headshot. If you're making me groan out loud within the first minute, that is never a good sign. Lots of really bad CG blood splatter in this, with a few moments of okay practical gore.
If you're paying homage to the WIP genre, where was all the nudity? Why are women showering with their underwear on? Why are they in sexual situations and still have it on? The sheer stupidity was making me laugh. This does not deliver on the sleaze factor.
Most of the performances felt forced and overacted. The guy who played the doctor did not convince me as a villain whatsoever.
This film seemed like a bunch of ideas and characters all throw together with none of them being fully fleshed out. I didn't really care about any of these characters. I was struggling to figure out the point of several of them in the first place. The humor was out of place and none of it was funny.
To add to the positives I mentioned in the first sentence here, I did enjoy aspects of the final act; a montage where most of the characters met their fate. I mainly enjoyed Ellie Church's performance in this part. This was the only portion of the movie that really grabbed my attention (finally). Too little too late.
I was really looking forward to this movie because I love the WIP genre, but I ultimately felt really disappointed after watching. It just didn't deliver for me, but at least it was short at an 80 minute runtime.
