After undergoing surgery in a hospital, a woman finds herself waking up in a strange underground facility with other patients trying out a mysterious antidote that will supposedly heal any kind of malady or injury, and the longer they stay there find the brutal procedures holding a darker secret than they expected. This was a rather solid thriller with a few minor factors. One of the main positives here is the fact that there's so much to like with the setup and atmosphere of the situation. The idea of taking her hostage and keeping everything so secretive as they carry out a series of surprisingly intense setups that offer up some gruesome scenarios and surgical practices that go alongside the treatment they dole out to the different patients under their care. The entire setup is unnerving and chilling with how this unravels as the constant defiance and questioning simply bring about more time there which enables even more questions to arise the longer she's held there with their bizarre treatments. This includes all the brutal treatments that are carried out against her and the others which are quite fun with all the impressive gore on display during these scenes, which all make for a fun time here. There are a few issues with the film. The main problem is that the entire time this becomes frustrating how obvious the final twist is going to be. This takes the idea that the final half is going to be a grand, shocking revelation about her and what's supposed to be doing there but this is instead plainly obvious what's going on the second it keeps hammering home who all the strange visitors are who work around the hospital start showing up in the flashbacks that tell who she is and what's she's done in her past that are supposed to make her twist somewhat shocking but only signal the obvious. Indeed, that also highlights the other obvious factor in that the majority of the film features the same overall pattern of an escape attempt, punishment and then a conversation with another patient that spurs her to try another attempt. None of this is interesting or thrilling and tends to hold this one back considerably. Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Brief Nudity.
