    No cure for the Sickhouse

    When you see the visuals in the trailer for this film, you understand how the studio execs were likely duped seeing the dailies, that they had a decent film in production.<BR/>The final result is a huge disappointment. The film is nearly as incoherent as it is unengaging. After quickly presenting the premise, Gina Phillips off to work, excavating in potentially still plague infested remains of a 17th century hospital. We never develop any interest in her character or the four teens who somehow bumble into this guarded and locked down building.<BR/>As the climax approaches you may find yourself wishing that all the characters be quickly dispatched and the film come to a speedy conclusion.
