The Void

When: Sat., April 15 2017

The Void, a new horror film from directors Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski, comes off as much more ambitious in scope than a standard horror flick; unfortunately, those high ambitions cause the film to miss a few of the targets it aims at. The film uses a familiar horror setup: After police officer Carter (Aaron Poole) finds a bloodied man on a deserted road, Carter transports him to a run-down hospital. Soon thereafter, creepy hooded figures surround the hospital, locking the strangers inside together. They have two choices: work together to survive the night, or die. Once the film moves past the cliches it has set up, it begins to build tension and becomes engaging on its own terms. It screens tonight at midnight at the Capitol Theatre. Regular admission rates apply. (Johnny Cook)
