    Eliza Dushku? Now there is a name I haven't heard in ages.

    I enjoyed Dollhouse mostly because of Eliza. Beautiful woman.

    With Dushku and Patrick, I may give this a go.

    Looks pretty decent. I would see this without hesitation.

    I'll check it out for Eliza. I haven't seen her in anything for ages as well. The movie looks ok. Almost direct to video.

    For some reason I came across old hospitals and asylums recently in searches. The one in this movie is or was supposed to be big. But the ones I found are massive. I can't remember the name of the architect. Or the movie that made me look into them. But supposedly they were made to allow sunlight throughout the buildings and help patients recover. There are still some around but many were demolished.

    This is House on Haunted Hill (1999) with Robert Patrick in the role of Vannacutt. Easy pass for me.

    Wow, never thought of it that way but I see what you mean. I do want to see it though. I like Robert Patrick. Good actor.

    I do as well, but every time I see him I'm waiting to see him take out a picture of John Conner.

    100% agreed. I saw it in the theater and have some terrible bare bones DVD.

    The blu-ray is decent (widescreen, extras, etc). I recommend it.

    Thanks. Just saw the BD was available on UK's Lovefilm (their version of Netflix). Requested the BD.

    Bought the DVD for $1.50 from Family Video. Was mostly curious because this was filmed and takes place in my home state of Michigan.

    Pretty safe, predictable, and generic stuff. The cast keeps it watchable, but it's just so by-the-numbers. Like the similarly un-suspenseful Don't Breathe, they make the mistake of opening the movie by showing you the ending.

    I don't know if the movie is just poorly shot, but there is some major black crush on this DVD. It is one dark movie. No extras on the disc whatsoever, which is a shame because I'd have liked to learn more about the Eloise asylum itself.

    This movie is the definition of straight to video. Dull. And it is very dark in scenes so much that you can't see what's going on. Not that you'll miss anything. Eliza doesn't have much to do in this movie except look pretty and play the caring sister. Robert Patrick plays the same kind of doctor he played in another horror movie with Vasquez from Aliens. There is a twist in the movie but not something I really cared about. I didn't even get why they did it.

    And
    at least Don't Breathe went a bit past that opening scene. This movie really does end for the most part at that opening scene.
