ANYWAY, that being said, I got a wild hair up my ass and picked up The Facility on On-Demand.
You all have heard of those clinical trials that hobos and teenagers sign up for, right? The one where they pay you a couple of hundred bucks to lock you in a hospital ward for a few days so they can monitor new drugs and see what kind of horrible things they can do to your body? Well that's where this movie takes us. Right into one of these trials. I won't say the middle of it because you start at the beginning, with the subjects being taken in and having the ins and outs explained to them.
We get our standard characters. The asshole jock, the nice girl, the outsider kid, the nerd, the creepy old dude, the goth-ish girl, and the too shy to survive in the real world, let alone a horror movie guy. They're brought in to test a drug called PRO9.
|You're gonna put what where?|
OK, I made that last one up.
|No, I didn't.|
So, here's the deal, horror directors, there's a time and a place for subtle. Having your characters turn into insane monsters? Not the fucking time or place. If you're gonna give me insano-drugs, give me over-the-top shenanigans.
I like shenanigans.
|So do we.|
