Antidote (2021)

A woman is admitted into a hospital for emergency surgery, but then awakens trapped in a bizarre medical facility where patients are treated like lab rats, mutilated over and over again, then healed by doctors, as if they were in some afterlife version of Men Behind the Sun. Is this heaven? It is hell? Or is it somewhere in between?

Director Peter Daskaloff also made Girls After Dark and Sex and the Single Alien, while writer Matt Toronto was the writer and director of Face 2 Face. They’ve put together a tense film that really leads one to question the answers to the fate of its characters. Yet without giving anything away, the ending feels like a cop-out after the film has painted itself into a corner. Ah well, you can’t expect everything, right?

Probably the best-known actor in this movie would be Ashlynn Yennie, who you may recognize as Jenny, the rear section in The Human Centipede. Louis Mandylor, who was in the My Big Fat Greek Wedding series as Nick Portokalos is also in this. He was also the sheriff in Rambo: Last Blood. In fact, there are plenty of Greek actors in the cast.

Antidote is available on demand and on DVD from Uncork’d Entertainment.
