"Oh, the darkness is included"

(C) I. I. Pechkin from the new season of "Buttermilk" in 2018.

Here's Craig Thaler beat me. As far as I had a negative attitude to his "Tomahawk" — boring work on the junction of genres, so here's what killed me the ending is not know the style of "the island of the damned", or something like that. Uncomplicated story of rebellion prison crazy, cluttered with a lot of personality characteristics of heroes. It turns out everything they are musicians, at the clinic just working. Hero Rupert Evans — the main character, at the same time reminiscent of Jesus and Kurt Cobain, is experiencing in this clinic, persecution mania from one of patients. In the course of the film, this mania is growing and multiplying, but we don't notice. The final twist gives us a lesson style — "there are no people healthy there is not". And also turns with the feet on the head a good third of the film, offering us to revise what I do not was and decided to leave myself in the networking of speculation, which is willing to share.

The film is directed by Alexander Cortez, was shot to this clips, the most famous of the which — "Seven nation Army", which is probably why the characters in the film he made musicians. Not only Evans, but all parties recall the composition of "Nirvana". The film fits in klipovoy manner, especially its ending.

Actors known here, Rupert Evans known only to fans of the series, in the feature films little noticed. The all characters are expressive, especially Richard Break the role of the main antagonist and Dave Legeno in the role of the supervisor, the actor who died recently at the strange circumstances.

So, returning to the variations in the interpretation of final — musicians, people taking drugs, so they can't be trusted. The hero finds himself in various forms, survived whether it from the crazy terror, and whether this terror for me now a mystery. Themselves crazy are most peaceful, however in the final, there are a few heartbreaking scenes, talking about that they all were underfeeding. For example, when the main character is one of patients, to whom he like, I like potatoes. There are still a few such scenes, characteristic of cutter people writer Zalera that from the Thriller cast this film in the category horrors. Here, perhaps, is also the crossroads of genres, the psychological Thriller and horror film, also with elements of action. Revolution subgenres but not happened, but the film looks like a vigorous Thriller from prison isolated style of horror films.

4 chefs who work in a mental hospital to be locked in the ytq at the time of the rebellion crazy.

The theme itself is great, the suspense is also pumped well, the whole movie worried about the guys, but the main disadvantage is the darkness. In States, the film is called Asylum Blackout, it is turning off the lights in the psych ward. Light and really turned off in the beginning of the movie, but and not included. All the movie takes place in dark corridors or hell no. it, are guided in mainly sounds. It helps nagineni of fear on the audience, but quickly bored.

In the end, a competent Thriller/horror film, but so dark that all the time I want to spit and off figure.

The film was released in part Canal+ that several raised the bar in my eyes, because under the leadership of this French channel low-grade films never released.

So, about a psychiatric hospital he did not enough, but such a plan, I think of all the else it was not. The main characters — the cook, the guys at the part-time playing in a rock band find themselves in a sticky situation, because of the rainy season in one of days psychiatric clinic of the lights blew and the crazies who came to Breakfast, with time to take the situation under control.

I liked the manner of shooting in the film, the picture quality, camera angles quite unusual even in some measure art house. The film itself is very atmospheric, the color palette varies in dark bluish colours on the street are constantly pouring rain, and inside the building a long, empty corridors from somewhere in the darkness hear the cries of the loons.

The main character is very charismatic, without words it good to play its role, which is only its opinion, a very deep and emotional. That touches of a murder, the first half of the film looks like Thriller rating PG-13, for the middle of a bit time to get bored, but closer to the end is a normal acceleration and nasilstvennye scene becomes more sophisticated and rating actively grows into a R.

With such a small budget, turned out pretty good suspense with a little twist in the end. The French have never down.
