On their way to a distress call nearby, five policeman are involved in a vehicle accident, are stranded but make their way to an abandoned building where they are essentially and unbeknownst to them, trapped in a labyrinth of Hell where some mighty terrifying and surreal things happen to them! This being Can Evrenol's feature length debut film that was based on his short film of the same name, it served as a rather strong catalyst of what Can is able to do directing a feature length. There are several influences that are clear as day when you watch the film, from other classics such A Nightmare On Elm Street to Hellraiser. Other ingredients to brew this fantastical horror movie are gore, surrealism, perversity, and cannibalism. Not a bad recipe to make a delicious plate of horror; thought I wish they would have delved more into studying the characters, who they were, and what made them deserve the hell they got. It definitely would have made me care more about their demise. But nonetheless, what you see is a director with a strong visual command of what he puts on screen, because ultimately you get to see some really awesome horror visuals and fantastic camera work!
