A Horror Feature Film
Logline: When an evil red fog with a nasty sense of humor is unleashed in her rehab centre, Frances must learn to overcome her demons – both the emotional kind and the physical manifest-into-your-worst-fear-and-try-to-kill-you kind – before she becomes the next victim.
Frances is a high school cross country star with her sights set on Nationals. Her hopes of first place glory are obliterated after the mysterious loss of movement in her legs. She’s sent to McCogEdEn Rehabilitation Centre for her recovery, where being confined to a wheelchair quickly becomes the least of her problems.
From the strange behaviour of the staff, to the shifting halls and morphing walls that don’t lead where they should, to the nonsensical passage of time, nothing in Rehab adds up. When a fellow patient’s inexplicable death is obviously covered up by distraught staff, Frances is forced into the unwelcome roll of a Nancy-Drew-sleuth. Her theory: Rehab is a cage for a Fear Demon. The patients are its food.
Too bad no one believes her.
Fear Demon Barbas, caged in the Rehab centre for centuries, thinks he can finally escape. Frances holds a particularly tasty fear – the trauma of being kidnapped and held for days when she was a kid. If Barbas can possess Frances and feed off this fear, he’ll be strong enough to break free forever.
Frances can’t run from Barbas. But maybe, just maybe, if she learns to embrace her past she can harness that strength for herself – becoming the perfect vessel to hold Barbas, forever.
Well, until she dies. Then who knows what will happen to the Fear Demon? But that’s a question for another day.
