Well known psychiatrist Dr. Ty agrees to put his skills treating patients to the test in a documentary filmed at Sedah State Hospital. Met with scorn by the top resident, Dr. Delazo, his every move captured on film, and the deaths of his wife and daughter fresh in his mind, this could be more of a challenge than Dr. Ty expected. As if that wasn’t enough, Satan has checked himself into the hospital and wants Dr. Ty’s help.
Eriq La Salle (Satan, and he directed the film as well), Michael Beach (Dr. Ty), Ronny Cox (Dr. Delazo), John McGinley (Parker), Sinbad (Orderly), Tiz Texada (Lupa), Tracy Pettit (Cheryl).
This one starts off pretty well then builds on the momentum throughout the film. Character development was just right, building a good connection with the audience. And once Satan appears, things get really interesting. I enjoyed the theological angle of the film but it was still a thriller that takes us on a pretty good ride. The ending may be disappointing for some as it is open to imagination. Some films have tried this and failed but this one does and excellent job of leaving the ending open to interpretation.
Despite this looking to be a bit low budget, it was a very well done film. Acting was very good by everyone involved. I originally saw Sinbad on the list of actors and thought this would turn out to be a B-movie but it wasn’t even close. And although Sinbad had a small role, he actually did a decent job.
Sets were okay, nothing special. Camera work was good, sound and dialogue were also nicely done.
Overall I didn’t expect much from this one and was quite surprised when it delivered above my expectations. A very nicely done thriller worth watching.
Some violence, foul language, and a fairly explicit sexual scene so save this one for adults.
