What it's about:

Teen Kristen (Amber Heard) is confined to a ward in a mental hospital after being suspected of an arson attack. Once there Kirsten has strange run-ins with a phantom who roams the halls at night. When she goes digging for information about former patients she soon becomes convinced that no one ever leaves the ward alive.

"The shocks mostly consist of figures suddenly rising up in the background, or thunderclaps from a seemingly endless thunderstorm." - Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
