The Facility is a 2012 British horror movie that revolves around an experimental drug trial taking place in a secluded research facility. Directed by Ian Clark, the movie stars Aneurin Barnard, Steve Evets, Alex Reid, and others. The opening scene shows eight volunteers who have gathered for a clinical trial of a new drug. They are Maureen (Nia Roberts), Adam (Aneurin Barnard), Joni (Sky Llobet), Tom (Oliver Coleman), Cath (Amit Shah), George (Jack Doolan), Viv (Alex Reid), and Matt (Steve Evets). They are given the drug R7 and are expected to be monitored for a week.

Initially, the participants seem excited to be part of the trial, but as the effects of the drug start to kick in, they start to have hallucinations and severe side effects. The situation quickly spirals out of control, and tension starts to mount as the participants start to experience extreme paranoia and erratic behavior.

With no way to contact the outside world, the volunteers soon realize that they are alone and trapped in the research facility. As the days progress, they start to suspect that the drug trial has gone wrong, and the researchers are hiding something from them.

The cast is well chosen, with Aneurin Barnard's Adam being a standout performance. Barnard does a great job of portraying a character who goes from being excited about the trial to someone who is terrified and suspicious of the people around him. Steve Evets, as Matt, also delivers a great performance as the group's resident conspiracy theorist.

The movie is shot primarily in a single location, which adds to the claustrophobic and unsettling atmosphere. The limited space adds to the feeling of isolation and helplessness that the volunteers are feeling as they try to find a way out.

The plot is straightforward, and the movie doesn't rely on cheap jump scares or gore to create suspense. Instead, it relies on the slowly building tension as the volunteers unravel the mystery of what's happening to them. The pacing is perfect, with the movie always keeping the viewer on edge.

The Facility is an excellent example of how to create a horror movie that relies more on atmosphere and tension than jump scares and gore. Ian Clark has directed an excellent movie that will keep you engaged from start to finish.

In conclusion, The Facility is a well-crafted horror movie that will stay with you long after the final credits have rolled. With great performances and a tight script, it's a must-watch for fans of the horror genre.

The Facility is a 2013 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 22 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8.
