Katherine (Sophia Dawney) wakes up in a cagelike room, locked in with three other women, superscared Elaine (Sylvia Robson), over-analytical Jane (Lisa Devlin) and hot-tempered Natasha (Tina Barnes). Katherine has no idea how she got there, or who she is even, and neither do the other women. Eventually, a couple of masked nurses who don't shy away from violence take them to Doctor Murdoch (Daniel Jordan), just to answer a few questions, as he assures them, but actually he is playing mindgames with them, scaring them more and more by the minute.

Jane tries to figure out what's going on, so she stays up all night - and witnesses one of the nurses appearing out of nowhere, cutting a number into Elaine's skin. Later, another nurse appears and brutally slaughters Elaine - at exactly the time the number cut into her suggested. Jane tries to alarm the others, but all of a sudden the body is gone, and the others don't believe her. Then Jane is dragged away and tortured - and a number is cut into her as well. Now she is scared shitless of course, and of course, she also is slaughtered at exactly the time the numbers indicate. 

It isn't long before Katherine and Natasha find numbers cut into their bodies as well, and even though so far they haven't been eye to eye on anything, they now join forces to protect one another against the killers who constantly appear out of nowhere, and for a time they seem to succeed, too, but ultimately Natasha is killed at exactly the appointed time. Katherine on the other hand starts to remember things from the past, like her training in one-on-one combat, and she actually manages to defeat her attackers ... and then find an alien locked away in a cell next to hers ...

Ok, the plot of this movie is really far-fetched and over-constructed, and the sci-fi-plottwist towards the ending is a bit hard to swallow ... but none of this matters, really, because more than anything else, Bane is a feature-length exercise in cinematic suspense - and it succeeds, the film is tense from beginning to end, filled with violence and scares, and never letting up until its end. Add to this a competent cast, Spartan yet effective set designs, and a director with the eye for the horrific, and you've got yourself a pretty exciting film!

Recommended, actually.
