Having had a nightmare about something terrible happen to his wife Marcy (Calico Cooper) and daughter Kendra (Tiffany Martinez), Jack (Trae Ireland) rushes home from a camping trip to be with them, to find his wife scratching the skin off her arms obsessively, a behaviour totally unlike her ... so Jack wastes no time rushing her to the hospital, leavind his (weirdly apathetic) daughter with his three best mates Quentin (Jody Barton), Joe (Nihilist Gelo) and Trevor (Bill Voorhees).

The hospital seems to have a very busy day, so at the beginning, Jack doesn't even mind too much that everybody's rude to him ... well, at the beginning he doesn't, when the hospital staff and especially the doctors get more and more abusive, verbally, he starts to wonder ... and then, before his very eyes, his wife throws herself out of the window. What's worse, the hospital soon turns into a madhouse and Jack's attacked several times when he merely tries to leave - but he's dragged into a room by Candace (Erin Coker), the only one in the whole place except for him, according to her because they've both been born on leap days - a Mayan prophecy says so. With his wife dead, and apparently loonies everywhere, Jack becomes worried sick about his daughter, and somehow he convinces Candace to accompany him in going to save her, even if that means they have to slaughter their way through the madmen and -women that occupy the hospital.

Thing is, things have gone out of bounds at home, too, as Kendra has discovered her homicidal streak and murdered Trevor, while Quentin and Joe have just gone batshit crazy - but they're crazies with guns ...

 

So ok, the premise with the Mayan prophecy driving people insane except for those born on leap days might be a bit too far fetched to do anything for the movie ... but fortunately, 13/13/13 doesn't rely on it too much, merely uses it to combine the best elements of the psychokiller and the zombie genre - and the result is one creepy movie that's also energetic as hell, thanks to great pacing and camerawork, paired with some nicely placed gore scenes and outbursts of violence. Add to this some nice performances - Jody Barton's psychopath is particularly creepy - and well-placed spots of tongue-in-cheek humour, and you've got one nice genre movie that's most certainly among the best The Asylum has put out so far.

Recommended!
