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.
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
here to open the Spoiler Pop-up!
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!
