Quick Reviews: The Void (2016)

After lots of hype online, does this low-budget shocker deliver?  Let's find out...
In a small Town, a few things are happening. 

Random Violence occurs.  Strangers appear.  Weird visions.
A Cop ends up at a mostly-empty Hospital (due to a fire and renovation) with his wife, a few random people and a man who escapes the opening violence.

As things start to go bad, our Hero has a weird vision.
A bunch of strange Cultists appear outside of the Hospital and trap the people inside.
Freaky monsters start to appear in the Hospital as well.  Not good.
The survivors try to find the secrets of what is going on.
As the truth is revealed, will they even want to?!?

To find out, watch the Film.
Crazy, dark and fun.  The Void is a nice attempt at doing a modern-update of Lovecraft.  Creepy cult, crazy monsters and a bleak Tone- they nailed it!  The Film has a good pace too, not just putting all of the good stuff on the back-end.  They don't skimp on the dark stuff either, with stabbing, shootings and freaky monster stuff.  The whole thing just works.  If you don't like the dark, bloody stuff, this is not for you.  If you can accept or enjoy the freaky stuff that pulls no punches, this one is *definitely* for you.  It continues to support my general thesis, 'The Freakier/weirder the Title, the less weird/interesting it is.'  Seriously, look at most Troma Films and then look at stuff like this or Society.  If you love Horror and haven't seen this yet, don't wait!  Now, if you don't mind, I need to wash up...
Damn crazy stuff that actually delivers.  Can we have more of this and less Found Footage crap?
