Tongan Ninja director Jason Stutter takes the helm for this supernatural horror comedy concerning a group of human guinea pigs who subject themselves to a series of medical tests, only to discover that the hospital where the experiments are being conducted is haunted. Diagnosed with cancer, flippant English teacher Andre Chang (Raybon Kan) decides that he's got nothing to lose, and agrees to take part in an experimental drug trial. As the testing gets underway, Andre connects with pretty cancer patient Juliet Reid (Jessica Grace Smith), who's convinced that the hospital is in fact a converted insane asylum where her favorite author perished under mysterious circumstances. Over the course of the 48-hour test, Andre and Juliet experience what can only be described as a series of unsettling supernatural encounters. Are their disturbing visions a simple side effect of the experimental drug that's been administered to them, or are these corridors home to something that isn't quite human? Bret McKenzie, Rhys Darby, and Jemaine Clement co-star.
