The date of the experiments listed in the opening align with the known dates of MKUltra, a series of experiments conducted for the CIA through various fronts posing as private companies. These experiments included the use of LSD, other drugs, electroshock, surgical proceedures and implants on unwitting subjects with the express goals of mind control, mind wiping, and reconditioning. These are key elements in this movie. See more »
Between 1954 to 1976, nearly 600 children were voluntarily submitted for participation in a number of behavioral studies. These experimental facilities were privately funded and tucked away in secluded regions of the south.

I'm as big a fan as any when it comes to low-budget, B-Horror films.
Last year I went to 5 of the 8 by myself, and thus far this year, i've hit 4 of the 8, some of them by myself, simply because I lack a circle of friends who enjoys the genre for what it is.
my love and admiration for crappy horror films stated, understand that this movie has no place in the horrorfest 8. It's funny, because even though I know I'll end up going to all 8, I still pick and choose carefully which ones I'll attend first. In that process, I read as much IMDb info as i can, from the syndicated reviews, to the user reviews, and I must admit that I was suckered into this based on the user reviews, something I usually trust.
This movie was atrocious. It establishes very little up front, which is irritating initially, but in the long run more so because of how basic the premise is. It is very cliché, which most B- Movies are, but this one so much so that it seems very amateur, and who likes watching something they feel like they could have written or produced?
Please believe that this isn't your average bully picking on someone lesser than him. I'm of no real merit in the movie review world, but I do watch a lot of crap-horror mainly because I feel like there's nothing better than a movie that accepts itself for what it is, and has fun with it's status, and that's a lot of what horrorfest has come to be. This movie, however, seems to treat itself like it's the freshest and most original idea ever, when in reality, all they did was combine a series of elements that many movies have used in the past (i.e. house on haunted hill, the ring, saw, the grudge, and yes, as mentioned by others, and somewhat out of place in the previously listed, the big chill) ...SIDE NOTE: if you enjoy, in any way, the previously mentioned movies, and figure that because you liked some of those, that you'll like this, you wont, i'd request that you send me your $9.50 instead, and stop supporting a skid mark of movie
There's very little promise in this movie, I do recall one point where I got an inkling of excitement in thinking that soon and very soon, something worthwhile and exciting was going to happen, but alas, no such scenario. It became so frustrating at one point that I nearly walked out, but having only done so once in my life (Shoot 'Em Up), I opted to hold out, JUST IN CASE something came along that made the last hour of my life mean something. instead, when the credits rolled, I felt an overwhelming urge to break something or combatively discuss the movie with other patrons in theater. unfortunately for me, the only other person in the theater had left about 45 minutes in
Far and away, more insulting and disheartening than anything about this movie is that this villainous embodiment that is doing all the killing is on screen for roughly 250 whole frames of the movie. you barely get a look at what's causing all the mayhem, and when you do, it's less than satisfying
3 stars for effort and that 15 to 20 seconds of promise...you'd be okay missing out on this though...
