Obviously inspired by films like PRINCE OF DARKNESS, THE THING, the HELLRAISER series, THE BEYOND, etc. THE VOID tells the gripping at first and then gradually less exciting story of a group of people holed up inside a small backwoods hospital. They're surrounded by an armed group of hooded outer space worshipers, but the even bigger danger lays in the basement of the hospital. Eek!
For a low-budget horror film, THE VOID has amazing-looking special effects...I just wish the story had been more original and creepier. Some tasty nudity wouldn't have hurt things either.
Great beginning, boring middle act, meh ending. Awesome special effects, good acting, nice photography, too dark lighting, boring dialogue, great music, fair amount of blood, zero tits. I liked THE VOID, it was a good time-waster, but I can't ever imagine wanting to watch it again.
Probably would have made a better novel than a movie.

Anybody with even a basic knowledge of "bad movies" knows what they are getting when they sit down to watch an Andy Sidaris joint: a ridiculous story filled with big guns, fat tits, exotic locations and goofy dialogue. In other words...they're fucking awesome!!!
This time around, the action is set in Hawaii (which truly is beautiful in this film), as some sexy female drug enforcement agents (who are working undercover as small cargo aircraft pilots) accidentally deliver a killer snake and then accidentally intercept a shipment of diamonds intended for a local drug lord! Talk about having a bad morning...better go get topless in the hot tub and think it over!
Somebody shooting a large killer snake from 5 feet away with a rocket launcher inside a house (!!!), numerous topless scenes, some truly cringeworthy dialogue, eye-melting 80's fashions, cool 80's electronics, a middle-aged skateboarder doing a drive-by while holding an inflatable sex doll, crossdressing, medium pace, Andy Sidaris acting, throwing star-fu, nunchaku-fu, ninja hand claw-fu, somebody "smoking some heavy doobies" and a guy getting murdered with a frisbee!
If frisbee murder didn't grab your attention, then I don't know what will. HTTH isn't the best movie of all time (or even a good movie!), but in the right frame of mind, it can be a lot of fun. So grab some heavy doobies and check it out.
