Death Tunnel (2005)
USA / English
"Your initiation into terror. "For an initiation stunt, five college women are locked in a Kentucky hospital built in 1910 where 63,000 people died from a disease known as the "white plague". Deep under the hospital is the "Death Tunnel" which once were used to secretly remove the dead from the grounds.
Errrr.....that's a tough one
This movie contains some great cinematography and lighting. But that's
it. As far as plot and flow are concerned I wouldn't be at all
surprised to learn that someone dropped a ton of three minute clips on
the floor of the editing suite and then just piled them randomly into a
playlist. In fact if you wanted to make your own 'director's cut' you
could do just that. Chop the flick into three-minute clips and then
watch them back on Windows Media Player set on random. It won't make
the slightest difference to your 'enjoyment' of this film and there has
to be a good chance that it would improve it. If I hadn't seen the
'Spooked' documentary last night I wouldn't have had even the faintest
idea what was going on. The documentary helped me understand not
because it was an interesting and educational piece of work (a
collection of interviews with members of some band and a couple of
bimbos) but because it contained interview footage of the pair of
imbeciles who made this. Two ageing wannabe Bon Jovi support act
members talking stultifying drivel. Hilarious stuff.
Shot on location at Waverly Hills Sanitorium, the story goes that they
didn't pay the owners for the use of the building. Whilst I feel sorry
for the guys they ripped off it might end up being a saving grace for
cinema if it puts anyone off funding these buffoons in future.
Within ten minutes of the opening credits they are paying clunky homage
to every horror movie that has been shot in the last 50 years. I'm not
joking. See if you can spot Ringu, White Noise, Nosferatu, Carrie,
Fear.com and Saw. The half-naked women might keep some younger people
interested for ten minutes but, seriously guys, stick to playing
air-guitar and never, ever go near a digicam again.
