4.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable quirky fun January 7, 2010
I highly enjoyed this film. In short, this is a New Zealand film that tells the story of experimental drug test subjects and their experiences locked up in a facility for a weekend. Its a comic-horror that supposedly spoofs other notable New Zealandish films. The patients are told the drug can have hallucinogenic side effects, and the movie presents amusing sequences of the patients attempting to differentiate reality from not, along with a nurse who very effectively maintains an ambiguously nefarious demeanor.

Its a cute movie. The story is interesting, but not overly incredible, and much more comedy than horror. However, the characters really made the story. A particular male and female meet at the drug test and develop an interesting, and somewhat heartwarming relationship, while also being effectively amusing. The production values are very high, and the acting is good as well. Very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars GENRE MIXING July 10, 2010
The movie has a simplistic plot, perhaps as a spoof of horror movie plots which have all blended together. It is basically a comedy with a horror background. I enjoyed the role of Nurse Bates, using the infamous Bates surname. Suze Tye has a really gorgeous set of eyes which come through even as an evil nurse. The animated skeleton with smoke love making scene was original, but not clever or well done. They could have placed the animated characters into impossible positions. The beginning scene of parents attempting to bribe the teacher reminded me of the movie "Serious Man" where the bribe became a moral dilemma for the Jewish teacher, unlike this movie. The movie has sexual scenes, no nudity, and Suze Tye's eyes. I think they should use Jackie Chan and Lindsey Lohan for the American version.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad October 25, 2010
Don't be tricked by the description- Diagnosis: Death is not a comedy. It's more like a light horror film without much in the way of suspense. Despite that, the film works because it does actually feature a decent (though extremely low budget) storyline and an eerily quiet atmosphere.

It's about a man and a young girl (a school teacher and student respectively) who are both dying of cancer, so they stay inside an experimental hospital that specializes in research that helps people in their situation.

Well, upon entering the hospital, there's basically only four characters for the entire duration (the other two being a nurse and a doctor). It makes the entire film feel exceptionally quiet and feeling like it severely lacks at least one more character to really give the film that extra spark it needs to truly be great.

The storyline is probably an extremely weak attempt at giving the viewers something in the way of actual horror, but the atmosphere is good enough that any faults are somewhat forgivable. The storyline is about a murder involving a child and his mother, and the mysterious events that unfold by way of the two cancer patients who are staying at the hospital and try to put the pieces together.

Besides, seeing a horror film take place in New Zealand is appealing to me. Not a bad film by any means, and it's worth seeing at least once.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. May 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was ok. Honestly, I thought Bret and Jemaine were going to have a much bigger role in this film. Jemaine is in it for one scene, which last maybe 2 minutes. and Bret is in several scenes but for about 15 seconds apiece. The movie itself was really strange, but I like strange so it was fine. Probably wouldn't have purchased it if I knew bret and jemaine weren't really in it.
