Plot Summary:
"Admitted to Mt. Abaddon Hospital for a routine procedure, George Grieves discovers that his condition is much more serious and complicated than originally expected; and as his own fears begin to manifest around him, he learns that Mt. Abaddon is not a place where people come to get better... it is a place where people come to die."

I donít get it and I donít mind saying so. I mean, I understood it, but I wasnít impressed. I admire the Raw Feed team for doing something different, but Iím not so sure they pulled it off.

Sublime, which boasts gorgeous cover art and an impressive cast and soundtrack, is a well made film which promises something new, delivers something new and leaves you feeling unfulfilled. I must sound really conflicted here, and thatís most likely as a result of the filmís confusing narrative.

Thomas Cavanagh (Yay! Itís Ed in a horror movie) stars as George Grieves, a man who enters the Mt. Abbadon hospital for a routine procedure and wakes up only to realize that things are not right. His nurse is stripping off, the orderly is killing patients and he seems unable to escape the nightmare.

The film looks amazing and has some awesome effects work going for it as well as some touching moments, but itís too intelligent for its intended market. Now Iím not saying that horror fans are idiots, far from it, but itís too slowly paced and well researched to be enjoyed by the average teen looking for blood guts and gore. This is what makes the film so disappointing.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Like a fine wine, I think Iíll grow to appreciate this film with age.
