Plot

Two outcast teenage boys skip school to enjoy the day drinking warm been in an abandoned mental hospital that they proceed to vandalize. Upon further investigation, they wander into the basement and find a naked woman strapped to a gurney. Now what’s wrong with this picture?

Pros

First for horror fans, you have all the mandatory requirements; gore, death, nudity, shock, etc. This film adds even more by examining the characters lives and the repercussions from the decisions they make with seriousness and a touch of humor.

Cons

This movie is graphic both visually and audibly and to say some of the scenes are disturbing would be an understatement. I read some of the reviews at IMDb and it appears that the people that hate it the most are women and many of them admitted to not watching all of the film to begin with. This is completely understandable since they never stood in the same shoes as a sixteen year old boy.

Recommendation

If you actually watch this film and pay attention to it, you will realize this isn't really about sex; it's about adolescent youth and some of the irrational decisions they make using the head that isn't above their shoulders. To judge them with "adult" eyes and life experiences will most likely cause you to chalk up this film as another unnecessary horror flick or yell and scream that this movie promotes abduction and rape. It is much more than that and was a pleaseant surprise.
