While browsing through Canadian Netflix on a weeknight looking for something to stymie the craving for a spooky movie (a common occurrence in October for most people but a necessity at any time in the year for the 24H2M crew), we came, once again, upon this movie. We passed over it before because the Netflix write-up for it was so friggin’ bland and run-of-the-mill, but this time we decided to take a closer look and realized it was directed by none other than John Carpenter (writer and director of Halloween, for those of you that live under a rock), so we decided to give it a go.
Without giving away too much of the plot, all we can really say is that it’s about a girl with a strange past that goes to an asylum and a bunch of stuff happens. That’s seriously all we can say.
Moral of this story? Even if it sounds boring on Netflix, it might be a totally cool John Carpenter movie that you don’t want spoiled by a plot summary on thescope.ca. This is definitely a good flick to help you prepare for …HALLOWEEN.
