Editorial Reviews

An obsessed Scientist tries to cure human deformities through DNA splicing, an obsession drawing him into a dark world where he experiments on the patients at Edgewood Asylum. Ignoring his pregnant wife Olivia, she comes to see him one night, but everything goes horribly wrong as Dr. Newman watches in horror as Olivia deliver their twins - One twin is a beautiful baby girl, the other a deformed creature that defies nature. 25 years later, on a dark road, a van breaks down. Young, beautiful Liz Holliman of the Roslyn Center for the Deaf is traveling with a group of young teens and her driver, ex-con, Jeff Thomas. With a flat tire, a storm and freezing temperatures, they must seek shelter. The group makes their way to an old abandoned building -- the Edgewood Asylum. Little do they know - evil awaits them...

Format: Blu-ray
A teen couple waits outside what appears to be a home, but is actually an abandoned mental institution. They wait for a woman to show up and undo the padlock on the outside of the door. They want to make love in the building. They go in and get slaughtered. Cue credits. We are now 28 years earlier. Randy Molnar plays Walter, a doctor at the sanitarium. He is doing unauthorized genetic experiments. His wife, who is pregnant with twins, (girl and boy) wants him to stop. Michael Berryman plays a cannibalistic inmate, or "tenant" as the doctor calls them, from whom Walter extracts fluid for his experiment. A nurse, a rival to the wife, wants Walter to continue with his experiments. Got the plot figured out yet?

We now go back to the present. A van, carrying deaf mute girls has trouble in front of the abandoned asylum...with no cell phone reception due to the rain. One of the girls grew up near there and looks a lot like the aforesaid wife. They break in and...

This has all been done before, except for maybe the deaf-mutes, which didn't really add anything to the story. Had we not seen these other films, this one would have been fine, even if it was grossly predictable. When the baby is born, the nurse proclaims, "It's alive!" Yes, we know it's alive and we can even tell you how it is going to end up. Overly predictable.

Format: DVD
(1.) No subtitles and poor, inconsistent audio levels makes it challenging to follow the dialogue which turned out to be generic Hollywood speak anyway.
(2.) Usual mad scientist operating an asylum/sanatorium while looking for a cure for disease and ends up with a deformed patient (resembles Proteus syndrome often associated with "The Elephant Man") that doesn't take kindly to strangers. This nasty patient (holding up in the, now closed, asylum) turns out to be his own son after his wife was injected with this supposedly curative drug.
(3.) Strangers, of course, and in this case vulnerable young adults traveling in the usual van, with the usual breakdown with the usual rainy day with the usual "no reception cell phone" plot line that is so over used there are web sites that cite all the movies that use it. Usual victims can't seem to make intelligent decisions and find escaping a Hollywood fantasy.
(4.) Yes, a few unluckies die but you don't really see that. Cost too much. A few escape - too bad.
(5.) This movie says a lot about the intelligence of many Floridians in that in the "Special Thanks Credits" is a shout-out for this educational film's financing to: "Governor Charlie Crist and the Florida Legislature for Financial Incentive". Money well spent! Think how much more educated Floridians are now on the benefits of killers in asylums! Speaking of promoting, I understand that his replacement had an equally embarrassing faux pas while touring Spain on "official" business.

A friend of mine is in this so I gave it a look....wow. She said it was bad but I was hoping for that "its so bad its good, maybe even funny" feel. Not even close. What a colossal turd. I should have been paid to watch this.

The acting was mediocre. And how is it that the red-headed nurse looks exactly the same almost 30 years later? And the plot was totally predictable. Can I have my $3.99 and two hours of my life back, please?

The Tenant reminds me of the classic "B" movies when I was a kid. The movie is scary, corny and done perfectly! I say grab a bucket of popcorn, snuggle with your honey and get ready to be startled, moved and shocked. It's in my que and should be in yours too!
