Alice (Yana Kolesnyk) has a little problem, she's a pyromaniac ... and
the bigger problem is that she got caught and convicted, too, and she saw
only one way to avoid jail, to have herself committed to the Damocles
Foundation, a humanitarian organisation that offers recluse for troubled
... and this is where Alice's problems really start, as while all
of the Foundation's slogans sound great in theory, they are only a
smokescreen for what looks like a big human experiment that pits the
"troubled" inmates against the even more off-the-hinge personnel
- including a highly psychotic orderly (Ryan Hunter) who can't get over
the fact that his wife is cheating on him, and two horny nurses (Victoria
Broom, Dani Thompson) with a predilection for shagging catatonic patients.
Alice tries to fight the system, but the more she tries, the worse her own
situation gets ...
Genre favourite Suzi Lorraine plays the woman who
runs the Foundation and monitors everything from afar, while director
David V.G. Davies himself turns in a comical performance as the inmate one
can get everything from - he even sells matches to the pyromaniac full
knowing she'll use them, just because the price is right ...
is one of these great little flicks that actually dares to think outside
the box: Sure, one can't deny certain parallels to One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest and other scenes are most certainly women in prison film
mainstays, including (tame) scenes of nudity and sex, but all of this is
held together by a highly original premise that also fuels the film's
underlying mystery, and the film is carried by well-paced suspense-heavy
filmmaking sprinkled with sudden shocks - all deemed to create a really
Well worth a look!
