Amidst a tornado warning, Amy (Danielle Harris) is caught in a traffic jam ... and suddenly wakes up on a hospital bed, with no idea how she got here. She tries to track down personnel for some information, but at first the place seems empty, then it seems nobody can hear her, and ... she's back in the traffic jam, with little time at all having passed - to immediately be in the hospital bed again, but this time she can be seen, and the orderlies don't seem to have her best interest in mind. But she also meets Jen (Katie Keene) and cop Ryan (Jeff Denton), who seem to be sympathetic to her cause - but then again it's back to the traffic jam, then back to the hospital bed, which seems to happen over and over. On the plus side, Amy gets to know Jen and Ryan better who seem to be stuck in the same time loop as her for years (but only sometimes can remember Amy, other times act as if they were strangers. Seems at the hospital some horrible forms of brainn surgery are transformed, and the "patients" are actually the staff's guinea pig. And due to the tornado and a science lab nearby that works on time travel experiments, the very fabric of time has been distorted and now they're all stuck in time - but also on the run from the hospital staff. And while at first it seems the loop could go on forever, time eventually seems to run out the closer the doctors, nurses and orderlies come to our heroes ...


So ok, this film does quite obviously play a riff on the time loop theme popularized by Groundhog Day, as much is obvious - but the way it tells its story (let alone its resolution) helps in letting the film come into its own very soon. And it's thanks to a very solid directorial effort and a strong performance by Danielle Harris that the horror of disorientation and the dread of confusion become palpable for the audience early on. Plus, not giving the audience any more information than its protagonists helps in making us complicit with them, share their experiences. And again, the finale will take everyone by surprise, even if it makes perfect sense in hindsight.

In all, a really cool movie!
