Movie Info & Cast


When a very dead suicide victim disappears from the morgue, it sets in motion a chain of events that has the power to immolate everything, and everyone, it touches.Troubled psychiatrist Daniel Forrester is drawn to help a mysterious patient who is brought to the emergency psych ward in a catatonic state with no memory of how he reached the hospital. As if to exorcise his own demons, the doctor feverishly tries to break through to his mysterious patient. But as a spate of mysterious deaths shake the ward to its core, Forrester comes to suspect that there is more to his new ward than meets the eye. As he comes to realise what he's unleashed, a desperate race against the forces of evil threatens to swallow him whole.

Did You Know?


    • Michael Clark: I died, and I came back, it wasn't the first time. I can't kill it, it came back with me in the fire. It wanted into this world, it's inside of me now. It comes back at night, moves around inside of me. I kept cutting cutting until I was dead.
    • Daniel Forrester: What is it that is inside of you?
    • Michael Clark: Blackness spinning spinning. I can see its thoughts, the things that it's done. It's showing me things it's going to do. When I killed myself I think I just made it stronger.

What it has going for it in spades is supremely creepy atmosphere. The hospital virtually becomes a major character in the story itself, its washed-out coloring and neon lights making everyone look like they have a sickly pallor.

The film is in tune with the need to remain lucid and empathetic while in the maw of human extremity.
