Once a grand establishment committed to experimentation and discovery, The Carmichael Institute For Scientific Advancement now stands in disrepair and financial ruin. That hasn't stopped a pair of driven scientists and their wealthy benefactors though from spearheading a top secret, genetic cloning experiment using a sample of centuries-old human DNA. Tensions rise and relationships crumble as these dedicated technicians find themselves sin deep in the deliverance of their own misdeeds. The subject is loose and so begins a tense struggle for survival against a project that cannot be controlled, off-set against the arrival of an additional group of young people who have even closer ties to one of the scientists than the peer she's involved with. Who, if any, will possess the purity required to survive the night as the price of one's own wickedness could end up costing them their very souls.

Brian S (es) wrote: Starting with 1994s Clerks and ending with 2006s Clerks 2, writer/director Kevin Smith went full circle within his "View Askewniverse" establishing his voice as a filmmaker, creating a series of (loosely) connected films that centered on stoners, convenience stores, malls, platypuses, God and many other subjects all within a comedic blanket. Smith has shown limitations from time to time (2004s Jersey Girl as a primary example) but you could argue that the director has always strived to try different things and push himself (1999s Dogma). Since leaving his established comfort zone, Smith went into a completely different direction with 2011s Red State, a horror film with some nice ideas but never quite finds its own groove. Though this is a new genre for Smith, he shows an understanding of it-playing with tropes, expectations and archetypes-and manages to think up some very uncomfortable situations to watch. Thing is there is simply too much emptiness to it all (which is disappointing as the film is a measly 88 min). The famous Smith quick witted dialogue is on display (performed by the great Michael Parks and John Goodman) but even that becomes stale when there is not much pushing things forward. Too much lingering, too many monologues and trying too much (or little). It is when Smith does the unexpected where Red State truly stands out but even that turns out to be a letdown, very much like the rest of the picture.
