Summary: An asbestos abatement crew wins the bid for an abandoned insane asylum. What should be a straightforward, if rather rushed, job, is complicated by the personal histories of the crew. Things get more complicated as would-be lawyer Mike plays the tapes from a former patient with multiple personalities, including the mysterious Simon who does not appear until Session 9, and as Hank disappears after finding some old coins.

It isn't scary (although one claustrophobic scene was surprisingly good compared to the dullness of everything before it) and the characters are boring. This was just an average movie that is watchable but nothing worth thinking about once it's done.
Had higher expectations. Started out pretty cool, but went downhill from the start. Cheesy 'kill-scenes', bad acting and horrible music. Very confusing background story.. the movie could have been so much more..
Rented it thinking it would be pretty bad but I can honestly say I was quite impressed with aspects of the film. The setting is fantastic, the overall mood of the film is more subtle than you have modern films (which I appreciate) and it relies on psychological scares rather than unrelenting gore for frights. David Caruso provides a good performance as well that I think is worthy of note. However, the film does have it's flaws (namely odd editing with screaming randomly throughout).
On top of bland acting, a bland story, a bland score, Brad Anderson has somehow managed to even make run-down Danvers facility seem bland. Props to the him for having the balls to film one of the most predictable and overused plot twists in cinematic history, though.
I'm a horror film skeptic, but this was surprisingly good and atmospheric. Well-acted (yes, even by Caruso!) and naturalistic, but in the end doesn't entirely manage to tie the story together satisfyingly and it was seemingly not fully developed, or at least ellipsed.
On one hand I suspect my expectations were a little too high for this movie, on the other hand it feels like tying the movie so closely to physical reality left so much ground unexplored. And even if you're tying the movie to the horrors of the real, why not play up the lurking danger of asbestos inhalation? That said, the film is interesting and the setting is jaw-dropping.
this is a weird movie. it seems to want to be about multiple personality disorder, but most of the plot and dialogue is about the dangers of being an asbestos worker. it's visually pretty nice, but the story is very dull, and seems to think it's smarter than it is.
The story is weak and stupid. A man hearing voices is pushed over the edge and he embarks on a killing spree. I really don't like movies that simply hint at the events that are unfolding. This director must have saved a lot of money by playing a sound track in place of creating visuals. They attempt to show a man who is losing his grip on reality, but this does a terrible and rather annoying job of it. Really confusing script, ridiculous plot and absolutely dreadful sound track.
