Rating: NR

A woman is admitted into a hospital for an emergency surgery, but she wakes up in a bizarre medical facility where patients are treated like lab rats as mysterious doctors are trying out a cure for all ills. The clinical research is brutal -- human endurance is put to the test and she must find a way to escape or continue to be used as a human Guinea pig.

'Antidote' tells the story of Sharyn Berkley who has to have emergency surgery but when she wakes up she finds herself in an underground medical facility where selected individuals are perpetually mutilated and then healed using a secret Antidote.

'Antidote' is one of those films that the more you talk about it the more you risk spoiling it for others who are waiting to see it. So instead of doing that I will just say that 'Antidote' is a horror/thriller that is trenched in mystery. As Sharyn gets to know a few of the other people she begins to piece together why she is one of them as she tries to figure out a way to escape. Where is this place? Why are they treating humans as guinea pigs? Also is the government involved or is there something even more sinister going on?

Those are questions you will be asking yourself as the film moves a long. All the mystery and suspense can be credited to Director, Peter Daskaloff who wrote the film along with Matthew Toronto. Together they have created an original horror/thriller that gets in your head and it stays there until the credits begin to roll.

The cast is another reason the film is so good, everyone in the film was terrific but the two leads, Ashlynn Yennie who plays Sharyn and Louis Mandylor who plays Dr. Aaron Hellenbach are both fantastic in their roles. ‘Antidote’ sucked me in right from the start and it kept me entertained and anxious the entire time. This is one horror/thriller that delivers in more ways than one so be sure to check it out when it premieres on DVD and Digital May 11.
