Keep your eyes wide open during The Void

Low-budget horror movie, The Void, will fulfill your gory cravings.

If you're into low-budget horror movies, The Void is the perfect movie for you.

The Void revolves around Deputy Daniel Carter, who found James hurt and wounded on the streets late at night. He carried him to a run-down hospital, where strange encounters started happening.

In the hospital held Dr. Richard Powell, intern Kim, nurse Beverly, pregnant Maggie and her grandfather Ben, and a few other patients that were wounded. Deputy Daniel Carter's wife, Alison Fraser, also works as a nurse in the hospital.


THE SURVIVERS WERE APPALLED AT THE SUDDEN DEATHS OF PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITAL.

As the story progressed, those who died in the hospital altered into shape-shifting monsters, terrifying the other humans and threatening to consume them alive.

While combating these obnoxious organisms, the surviving struggle to figure out how the mysterious transitions between the dead and alive take place – while praying that they are not the next to be taken.


IT'S A GAME OF LIFE AND DEATH, AS DEPUTY DANIEL CARTER TAKES ON THE DEVILISH MONSTERS.

One interesting part of the movie was how it seemed to reflect innate evil. Although the victims were normal human beings, their death transformed them into demonic creatures, killing other humans that were still fighting for life.

It was as if they have changed after ripping out of their own human skin, exposing their real selves under their façade.

While The Void mainly revolves around a hospital, which sounds horribly cliché, the story line is unique and will bring chills down your spine. Thanks to the abundance of gruesome scenes (it is rated M18, after all), they added much suspense and spookiness to the movie: the must-haves of any successful horror movie.

But unlike other horror films, The Void showcases its sinister ways with symbolism. Cultists dressed in hooded robes represented the consequences of sins and bad decisions. They constantly guarded the hospital, and anyone who encountered them would face death.

If I had anything negative to say about the movie, the plot was too fast-paced for my liking.

The background stories of the characters were not fully developed nor disclosed too. This affected the portrayal of the characters' deaths scenes, which did not evoke any feelings of grief or tragedy.

The ending of the movie, however, left me utterly speechless, as I mourned for the dead, yet I am thankful for those who made it alive.

If you're a horror movie junkie who loves to watch grisly acts unravelling on the big screen, this movie is one you should not miss!

The Void (rated M18) opens in cinemas on Apr 13.
