Aneurin Barnard, Oliver Coleman, Steve Evets, Skye Lourie, Alex Reid / Fiction / English

At a remote medical compound, a group of strangers begin clinical trials of an experimental drug called Pro-9. As the drug's sinister, unexpected side-effects begin to take hold, the terrified volunteers find themselves trapped, isolated, and in mortal danger. This atmospheric, claustrophobic horror-thriller is the debut feature from EIFF 2008 Trailblazer Ian Clark. Strong performances and a fast-paced edit add to the menacing tone, and an intelligent script lifts proceedings to spine-chilling proportions.

    I'm sorry, but this was very poor. Mindblowingly obvious story line, pointless, at least it was short.

    Really enjoyed the film. It’s so refreshing to see a horror film firmly based on reality with a totally plausible story and no zombies, vampires, extraterrestrials, paranormal activity or monsters of any kind. The atmosphere and tensions of the isolated clinical trial are well realised and the film shows little sign of its “micro-budget”. There are slight flaws – not all the characters are full realised – but the team of NFTS graduates, who introduced Saturday’s screening, have produced a very well crafted, disturbing and exciting film.
