If you’re in the mood for a scary film, then look no further than ‘Alive.’
A man and a woman (no names) are held hostage in an abandoned hospital in the middle of what appears to be nowhere. A man, presumably the only other person in the building, is sadistic, mean, cruel and the man and woman think that eventually they will be killed by him. Put through lots of medical experiments, forced to call where they are being held home,’ and forced to eat food that seems to have no known origin, the man and woman appear to be doomed. But when they get the chance they attempt an escape, but the caretaker seems to show up at every turn. Why are they there? How did they get there? and more importantly will they escape? In a film that has some clever twists and turns (with some predictable and unbelievable scenes), ‘Alive’ will shock you with totally out there surprise ending that is one helluva twist on the horror genre!
From the team behind ‘Harpoon,’ ‘Alive’ stars Angus MacFadyen (‘Braveheart’ and ‘Saw III’), Camille Stopps and Thomas Cocquerel, and directed with a sharp pen by Rob Grant. Winner of many awards at several horror film festivals, ‘Alive’ is twisted and downright scary.
