Ruthless and selfish documentary filmmaker Rayna (Susan Adriensen) and her laid back, care-free cameraman Jason (Jim Vaughn) take a motley crew of girls - psychic Aurora (Demona Bast), sceptic Kansas (Melantha Blackthorne) and weirdo Nessie (Noel Francomano) to the Buffalo Terminal, a trainstation long abandoned that over the years also served as an asylum where human experiments were conducted, a safe haven for drug addicts, and the slaughterhouse of a particularly nasty serial killer ... and now, the place is supposed to be haunted, and really, before long, our heroes encounter more and more evidence that there are real ghosts around - but as it is in such stories, that is no reason for the group not to seperate, and one by one, they are killed, first Nessie, who falls victim to a zombie, then Jason gets some treatment by a bunch of cannibalistic surgeons. Aurora, after having found out that Rayna has set up the whole horror show (apart from the deaths) to get a gouvernment grant, is first attacked by carnivorous puppets, and then stabbed to death by Rayna herself, who doesn't want anybody to find out that she's a cheat. Ultimately, Rayna and Kansas reunite, but while Kansas just wants to get out (and finally does, too), Rayna is so obsessed about finishing her documentary that she ultimately falls prey to the spirits she has summoned.

 

Admittedly, this film makes perfect use of its location, using the derelict building to its fullest effect and creating atmospheric shot after atmospheric shot because of that, only enhanced by clever editing. However, the rest of the film does not exactly follow suite: The plot, a bit of a Blair Witch Project-rehash, is just too thin to hold much interest, and boringly told, too, the characters are of little more than cardboard quality and experience no development throughout the movie, the cast is mostly below average, with Noel Francomano as the weirdo being particularly (and unnecessarily) annoying and Susan Adriensen as cold bitch and Melantha Blackthorne as sceptic with a dark secret hamming it up a bit too much, and the finale is little more than a letdown.

Still, not an all bad movie, since its location alone makes up for many (but by no means all) of its flaws. Just don't expect a masterpiece and you won't be disappointed.
