A supernatural force brings together two lost souls undergoing radical treatment at an experimental drug-testing facility. When the facility is locked down for the weekend and the drugs take effect, the human guinea pigs experience sinister hallucinations pointing to a horrific double murder. The genre is comedy horror, but most of the horror is within a five minute segment near the end. Nice original soundtrack and very good photography. Acting generally good throughout, but nothing is outstanding. There is a segment near the opening that features the stars of 'Eagle vs Shark', Loren Horsley and Jemaine Clement. Their bit has little to do with the basic plot, but they are long time friends of the director and so two very "NOT" 'Eagle vs Shark' characters were added to the script to provide another smile. Worth a view.
