In 1966 a blonde girl named Kristen (Amber Heard of ZOMBIELAND, DRIVE ANGRY) burns down a house and is picked up by the local police. She's put into mental hospital where she meets a few other girls her age. One is crazy, one acts like a little kid and hugs a stuffed rabbit, another is a flirt and another a braniac. They seem to be the only patients on the ward. Then weird things start happening and they disappear one by one, which may be due to the disgusting looking ghost of a woman named Alice. When she asks her doctor, Dr Stringer (Jared Harris of FRINGE), what happened to Alice--and the other disappearing girls--he insists he can't tell her, that it's for her own good.
Although there are some good production values and a few cheap scares, there are no surprises here whatsoever. It's as if a newbie film student wrote the script. In fact, if you've seen the movie IDENTITY there's no need to view Carpenter's weakest film.
