Five strangers are invited to the "Fallows House". None of them knows what they are doing there, but they soon find out that they're needed for an experiment. They're shown files with very personal information about all of them, and are told that they've been carefully chosen by a software. The test involves putting a microchip in their necks, which will bring them to a virtual world inside of the building where they can be and do anything they want. Total control. One wants alot of sex, another one wants to live in a black and white 50's sitcom (with laugh track), and one wants to be a killer. Is it worth staying for 100 000 pounds, if you're dying?

Our thoughts:
I bought this film just because I had the money. I didn't read about it, and I've never heard of it before. It was worth buying because it was cheap, and I like having independant films in my DVD collection, but man, this wasn't a very good movie..at all.

The first scene is just stupid. We hear a cat-ish noise and see two stupid guys scared at a door. A guy with glasses comes and takes their guns, opens the door and kills the "thing". Might not sound bad but it's just ridiculous. I'm glad this is the worst part of the movie, even though the rest isn't that good either. Maybe because I lost all form of hope for a good movie after that scene? The film is alright if you have low expectations, and it's not as boring as it could've been (too much dialogue). There is not alot of gore, just blood squirts, and as far as nudity goes, there is like one short scene with tits in it. We do have a few things I liked, but that's about it. The high heel in the head (that's always fun), the really bad decapitation with decent squirting, and the crawling clown (gotta give it to them, 'cause I think it actually could scare a child). Other than that we have a jump-scare or two, a really disgustingly bad CGI monster (that could've been really twisted and sick looking if it was done with a puppet), terrible zombie doctors, half-assed acting, and a clichéed plot with a virtual reality twist.

So far I believe this is my shortest review, but I don't think more needs to be said. I think you should watch this if you like really low budgeted independant movies with lack of ideas, tits and effects. Not really anything impressive here except for the fact that I could stand watching the whole thing even though it's mostly bad dialogue. Kudos for that, I guess.

Positive things:
- Black and white 50's sitcom scene was a little fun. Movie could've been awesome if it was like that all the way.
- The few fun violent scenes.
- The clown that actually could scare a child.
Negative things:
- Lack of ideas.
- Bad effects.
- Ultra CGI monster. I've only seen worse CGI in "The Worst Horror Movie Ever Made".
- Too much talking.
- Nudity. Yes, it could've saved it. The quality was like a porno, but without porn.
- Dolphin-Keith?

Gore: 1.5/5
Nudity: 0.5/5
Story: 1/5
Effects: 1/5
Comedy: 1/5
