To explain: The main character starts out surviving a car crash and walking to a nearby insane asylum for assistance. Roll Eyes Here. Anyway, from the very beginning, the actress playing the main character was not very good at her trade. Not very good at all. Beyond that, she had no screen presence, she is somewhat unattractive and she speaks in a brutish sounding Eastern European accent. I hate to sound so critical, but I seriously wondered who the actress might have been in bed with to get even this meager role. Perhaps she was the director's girlfriend or something. As it turned out, that exact scenario was worked into the plot. She was 'playing' a bad actress who was sleeping with the director. Aha.
Next, we meet the director of the asylum who is, in my estimation, perhaps the second worst actor I've ever seen in a movie. EVER. And for reference, the #1 worst actor starred in the horrible Beyond the Wall of Sleep DVD.
But then, we are shown that the actor playing the asylum director is 'playing' a bad actor. Nevertheless, all the rest of his scenes are bad, just like the main character's. Go figure. In fact, other than the young girl playing the character Anna, the movie is filled with bad actors well deserving of gruesome horror-flick deaths.
Finally, it is explained how the whole experience is actually a movie within a movie, within another movie. Sadly, all three movies are beyond redemption.
In the 1970's the doctor at this hospital (movie location) made snuff films of his patients. This movie within the movie is about that doctor. Then the crew finds a hidden room which contained the actual snuff films. The director watches the film. Soon people start to die, but it is not a who-dun-it. The voices didn't match the lips (foreign).
Parental Guide: Adult language, simulated sex/oral sex/ girl-girl action. Minor nudity.
The movie goes on for awhile until it lets you know that it is a movie within a movie. In the 1970's the doctor at this hospital (movie location) made snuff films of his patients. This movie is about that doctor. Then they find a hidden room which contained the actual snuff films. The director watches the film. Soon people start to die, but it is not a who-dun-it.
The voices didn't match the lips (foreign). There was some language, simulated sex/oral sex/ girl-girl action. Some very minor nudity, but nothing worth the rental.
