Two stars for the effort and the original listing, but nothing to suggest that you pay for the rental at all.
Jump to present as America Michael (Diego Boneta) is bumming around Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia. Homeless, he meets Melody (Maria Mesa) who recommends the abandoned hospital as a place to crash, a place that has electricity and raves. It is run by Jacob (Jackson Rathbone) who is a bit of a shaman. He has a certain nihilist/carpe diem philosophy in his group called "Dead Men." "Live like you are already dead." Michael joins, going through various ritual steps. He hallucinates and sees his dead brother Danny (Juan Diego Aldana Gomez) ...I guess technically a half-brother if you time-line the plot. More about Danny as the plot thickens.
Things become menatlly unbearable for Michael as Jacob seems to be playing him, yet he just doesn't walk away.
The film is designed for the younger crowd who like their parties, carpe diem, and a certain disdain for wisdom that comes with years. This was a professionally made film, which is becoming rare for horror. I wish they had more subtitles as not all the Spanish was translated in my version. Michael as the lead character didn't appeal to me. Jacob had more personality. The development of Melody was non-existent. There were no real horrific gore scenes, that is not to say there wasn't some killing and blood.
Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity. 3 1/2 stars.
