Storyline

Dana Milgrom (Shauna Macdonald) is a track coach and mother who's survived a near-death car accident, only to find herself paralyzed and trapped inside her own body. Forced to communicate via an artificial voice program and hooked to a breathing machine, she becomes convinced that a terrifying presence called Nails exists inside her hospital room. No one believes her - not even her own husband, who think she's experiencing a mental breakdown. As her marriage disintegrates and her grip on reality starts to shred, Dana fights to convince the doctors and staff that Nails is real and intent on destroying her. Written by Dennis Bartok

Promising start, but would eventually seem pointless...
19 May 2019 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

Shauna Macdonald is back for another creepy horror fare. The film did have some creepy moments, but unfortunately they were outweighed by a film that believed it was more serious than it ought to be, with unnecessary back stories. Oh, and we have the faithful monster in the closet scenario...

The film's beginning was very similar to 1988's 'Monkey Shines'. As short as the film was, it felt too long, and claustrophobic. The dialogue got increasingly worse as the film progressed. Even the music that was so scary and effective in the beginning, became annoying towards the end. It almost felt as if they had a good idea, but didn't follow through on it. Acting from the supporting cast was quite bad. The characters also did the strangest things; things one wouldn't normally do (or say) given the circumstances.

The film had so much potential, but fell completely flat and in the end seemed pointless. And what a stupid ending. Nails, huh? I think I'd much rather watch Freddy in 'Nightmare on Elm Street', thanks...
