During a routine road march at an island military training camp, an army recruit is found dead at exactly 23:59. This mysterious and gruesome incident unearths a terrifying dark secret of the haunted island, forcing the recruits to confront their deepest fears in order to find the truth about their friend's death.

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture is a low-budget digital production, with generally poor black levels and contrast, for a mediocre visual experience. The image quality is inconsistent throughout. Some segments present decent color fidelity, with natural fleshtones and rich greens of the recruits' uniforms. Other segments are dimly lit and not engaging. And flashback segments are strongly desaturated. Overall, this is an undistinguished experience. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audioô 5.1-channel soundtrack presents a nicely recorded music score, which provides effective support. Atmospherics and sound effects, such as a thunderstorm, provide effective surround and deep bass in the .1 LFE channel but unusually reserved for a horror movie. Aggressive surround directionality is not evident and the low-frequency response is timid. Dialogue sounds natural but wanting in spatial integration. This is an undistinguished, mediocre sonic experience. (Gary Reber)
