Storyline

Ever since she was a little girl, Iris has wanted to be a filmmaker. For the last five years though, she's been trapped working in reality television, directing episodes for a series that's barely able to compete with Ghost Hunters. Iris sees her big chance to prove herself when gets sent on assignment to her hometown of Black Falls, a small town harboring an abandoned insane asylum that has a dark history of excessive shock therapy. Filming inside the asylum brings back childhood memories for Iris, memories of sneaking into the asylum with her friends to shoot homemade horror movies. Little does Iris know, her life is about to imitate her art.

The Regurgitation
12 November 2016 | by shawnblackmanSee all my reviews

A horror film where some kids go into an empty asylum to shoot an amateur film when some unseen force kills some of them leaving the others damaged in some form or another. Years later the girl returns to revisit the place that screwed her up all for these years.

This one is incredibly bad. The asylum is more of a bomb shelter than anything. They don't develop characters or any kind of interest in the story, of which there isn't one. Any kind of plot they do show we have already seen a thousand times before. The end to this one is even worse than the rest of the film. A warning though, you might throw something at the screen. Avoid this one. They should have called it The Regurgitation.
