Fans of The Blair Witch Project will definitely want to see this superior, digitally-shot thriller. A group of hazmat workers are hired to rid an abandoned psychiatric hospital of its asbestos content before it is renovated and reopened for alternate purposes. What they are unaware of, however, is a presence lurking in the building that might be the spiritual remains of a disturbed patient who died there. Are they being psychologically invaded by this ghost, or is it just their imaginations? A terrifying feeling of intense fear runs rampant throughout, creating an ambience that you will be instantly sucked into and will not shake off for a long time.
