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 minds.

... 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 ...

 

Monitor 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 unsettling atmosphere.

Well worth a look!
