Dark Feed

Synopsis: When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants. As the shoot wears on, members of the crew exhibit increasingly strange behavior leaving those still sane realizing they need to get out of this place before they too succumb to the building's infectious hold, the only problem, the old hospital is not ready to let them go.

Is somebody there?

Who is this?

- Cut! Cut!

- Did I do something wrong?

No, you were fine.

Zeke, what are you doing back there?

Sorry, I didn't know

I was in the shot.


Yeah, go ahead.

Tell Harry there's somebody

in the lobby to see him.

All right, I'm on it.

Yeah, I think that eye shadow

looked really really great.

Hey, Harry? Sorry.

You have a visitor

down in the lobby.

Yeah, right,

I'll be right down.

We will be watching you.

It's pretty twisted, isn't it?

Especially for this place.

So how's my favorite writer doing?

Still can't believe this is happening.

I know.

Well, believe it.

Come on, I'll give you a quick tour.

This building's almost 100 years old.

It was the state's

first psychiatric teaching hospital.

Shut its doors about six years ago.

Only six years?

Looks more like 20.

Yeah, when they shut the place down,

they forgot to blow out the pipes.

The first freeze, all the plumbing

burst. There was water everywhere.

We're the first ones in here

since they let all the loonies out.

Hey, Mitch, do you read me?

Mitch, where the hell are those PAs?

We're 15 minutes away

from wrapping this shot.

That basement needs to be ready.

- Watch the ball.

- Shut up, shut up!

Jurgen, come on, man.

- She's really fast, man.

- All right.

And you're 6'3".

Next time, stuff her ass, dude.

Listen, it is not polite

to stuff a lady.

- Don't make excuses, okay?

- Okay?

- Play like a winner.

- Okay, guys.

That's game. I win.

What the f*ck are you guys doing?

What? We're on 15.

Did you not hear my radio?

The break is over.

Get back to work.

Beth, I need some light stands.

The rest of you, downstairs.

Gimme that call sheet.

Whoa! Hey, baby, next time you're

gonna reach your hand in my pocket,

- why don't you let me know?

- Yeah, all right, Darrell.

By the way, your boyfriend

is a total douche.

Oh, no no no no!


I don't believe it.

You guys are totally still doing it.

Oh my God!

No, long and over, my friend.

Or should I say short and over?

Oh, nice.

All right, I'll see you guys later.


So this is the pool.

What kind of pool is this?

This is where the doctor performed some

of his more controversial therapies.

This pool has a bit of a history.

So, um...

we decided to change

your ending a bit.

We're gonna have the nurse and the

detective confront the killer in here.


Um, yeah.

That could work.


Come on, I'll show you the main set.

Oh! What's that smell?

Ugh. They don't call it the bowels

of a building for nothing, huh?

All right, here we go.

This is sort of our holding area.

And here it is...

our apartment set.

This is, uh, Detroit.

- Nice to meet you. Chris.

- Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you.

- Nice to meet you.

- Yeah, hi.

- This looks great.

- Yeah, not bad, huh?

Does this stuff work?

Uh, it's all real,

but none of it's operational.

Whatever you do, don't use the toilet

in here. It's not hooked up.

- Gotcha.

- But it looks pretty good, huh?

We did it under budget.

We did it on the cheap.

Looks better than my place.

This is where she kills him, right?

- Yeah, you bet it is.

- Nice.

- Yeah.

- Everybody stand by.

The actors' dressing rooms

are up here.

Sorry to interrupt.

Just wanted to introduce

our writer Chris.

Hey. Great damn script, man.

Fucking genius.

I really love what you've written.


Uh, well, we'll let you get back

to what you were doing.

Take it easy.

What's with the boxing ring?

Oh, another actor's demand.

They're a bunch of prima donnas.

They wanted their own trailers.
