Storyline

On a hot day, two rebellious high school friends, Rickie and JT, decide to skip class and hang out at an abandoned, derelict Asylum for the mentally ill for some beers and fun. After breaking into the place, the fun begins with some bashing and smashing, in the maze of half-lit corridors, dark rooms and narrow pathways of the institution, when all of a sudden, JT discovers the body of a young, naked woman covered with a plastic film. In the light of this grotesque, yet, unexpected finding, unresolvable questions will begin to rise, as this seemingly unresponsive girl will start growling and gnashing. Who is this girl? Was she a patient here, or was she some sort of a guinea pig that a scientist used to perform some crazy experiments on it? In the end, how human is this girl that simply cannot die?

Well, you sure picked a shite-poor time to man up.
20 September 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

You might think this is all smarmy and about necrophilia when two teens, Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and J.T. (Noah Segan), playing hooky find a dead girl (Jenny Spain) in the basement of a mental hospital. Well, she is dead, but she isn't. She's undead.

Soon, she becomes a sex tool for J.T and his high school friends.

The conflict between the two life-long friends simmers the entire movie until it boils over in the end as we reflect on just what it means to be human.

Lots and lots of blood and zombie action, not so much sex. But, if you are looking for a horror film, you will be disappointed, as it is more philosophical and can't be easily fit into a category.
