Powerful Horror Film of Exceptional Quality

From gifted film maker Quin Davis comes this extraordinary and original horror movie. Both written and directed by Davis, it tells the terrifying story of students investigating paranormal activity in a abandoned hospital. Before too long, the investigators are running and fighting for their very lives as they are pursued by a blood thirsty maniac. Davis is superb at creating the fearful environment within the creepy hospital and his imagery is incredibly haunting. The script is intelligent and the characters are realistic and bright. John Bernath and Megan Davis give outstanding performances, giving their roles depth and humanity and compassion. While the paranormal investigation of derelict hospitals has been done a few times in the past, it has never been filmed with such insight, plausibility, and stark raving horror. An exceptional horror film, finely observed and beautifully realized.

Sorry you lost a bet and have to watch this rubbish

If you watched or are going to watch this movie, you must have miserably lost a bet. Yes, kids, this movie is that bad. So here is the story (doesn't deserve the word plot) of this movie. Some student, Maya, played by Megan Davis, has to create a documentary on something new and fresh for a class. Of course her semi-psychotic roommate comes up with a supposedly haunted hospital where children were mistreated. Starts off with the doctor blowing his brains out before the credits roll and I guess we are supposed to care about what/who was trying to get into his office. Typical story, so off the kids go to get the skinny from the locals and head into the hospital to film (after hearing the story of some kid that was locked away never to be seen again). Insert the usual clich├ęs including the ever present separating from each other at the stupidest times. OK if this review sounds disjointed, it is because the movie is a train wreck. Of course they are not alone, some I don't know what to call it, big dude with a goatee covered in blood and a long knife thing attached to his arm starts hunting them down and killing them one by one. The gore was OK for a low budget but nothing exciting. At no point do they bother explaining what the hell this thing was or why he was there. At a few points we do so the ghost of the kid, but that also never develops into a damn thing either. So one by one they are killed, 1 person lives, I'll let you figure out who. Sorry for that big spoiler, but if you read this and then see this, you deserve it, and also to be slapped. OK, acting, give me a break. Scenery, cool little abandoned town, woohoo. This movie is getting it's number for one short scene, and that is it, a very disturbing looking dream that Maya has towards the beginning (no spoiler). Beyond that 2 minutes, terrible. Well, 1.9/10 IMDb 2.7 I would like to point out the 2 reviews already here are clearly made by people who worked on the movie, so the numbers are very skewed. Don't enjoy.

"What's yours deepest fear"? ... Does boredom count?

For an amateurish movie, then I am sure that "Animus" was doing quite well by itself, but if you sit down to be fully entertained and watch a proper horror movie, well, your money is better spent elsewhere.

I gave up roughly about halfway through the movie, or there about, just when the killer - whom I assume must have been Isaac, given the starting credits. Why? Well, because the movie was just downright boring and uneventful.

I am sure that all of the Davis people had fun making this movie, and I am sure that the actors and actresses did too. But the movie was just too much of a unfinished product to sit down and watch. But of course, perhaps this was a learning experience, how do I know?

Storyline? Well, initially it is a group of people who go to an old abandoned hospital, which is allegedly haunted. (Something seen in many other horror movies, particularly bad 'found footage' movies.)

The characters in the movie, well they were adequate, but weren't really fully detailed or having enough dimension. It was as if they came off forced, scripted and wooden at most times, giving the cast very little to work with.

As for the effects? Well, I gave up before I could really see any, so I have no clue how well - or lack thereof - the special effects department did. The scene with the nurse and doctor in the operating room was a little bit too 'borrowed' from "Silent Hill" in my opinion.

I will say that the movie was nicely shot, some good camera-work here and there. But what was the best in the movie was the music and sounds, that was nailed right on the head.

The movie, or at least what I saw of it, didn't impress, nor did it manage to captivate or allure in any sense. And as such, I am rating "Animus" a mere 2 out of 10 stars.
