In the middle of a routine patrol, officer Daniel Carter happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road.
“Both stunning and disturbing … delivers some of the most bizarre and grotesque creatures to have ever graced the screen.” – Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting
He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that the patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it’s too late. A full-tilt horror movie built for classic horror fans, The Void recalls such gooey ‘80s cult favorites as John Carpenter’s The Thing, From Beyond and Hellraiser, boasting nasty gore, stellar practical effects and fantastic creature designs that pop, ooze and mutate into the stuff of true nightmares. Throw in a killer score, gorgeous camerawork and one of the most terrifying depictions of Hell outside of a Lucio Fulci flick, The Void is a blood-soaked, hair-raising journey into terror that will really satisfy your horror cravings.
