Robert Hall is no stranger to horror- getting his start doing the special make-up effects for shows such as "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "Angel"; he still works in such a manner on the likes of "Grimm", and a whole slew of genre films.
He has also directed quite a few movies, including his own bio-pic "Lightning Bug" and the awesome Chromeskull franchise. And now he's back with "Fear Clinic", based on a web series.
Starring the amazing Finoia Dourif (great in "Curse Of Chucky", better here), Robert Englund as a mad scientist (bringing pathos and gravitas to what could have a thoroughly unlikable role), and Slipknot's Corey Taylor (surprisingly energetic and charismatic), the movie gets a lot of mileage out of its cast.
The plot is pretty good, even though the ending is rushed, and doesn't quite make sense. The gooey, gore stuff doesn't come into play for about the first half, which is surprising given Hall's background, but the character development is appreciated.
