THE VOID (2016)

"We're in Hell."

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 unknown 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, lighting that was too dark, boring dialogue, great music, fair amount of blood, zero tits, zero dongs.  I liked THE VOID, it was a good time-waster, but I can't imagine wanting to watch it again soon.

Probably would have made a better novel than a movie.
