20 years ago, when he was not even in his teens, he has killed his parents and almost his baby sister as well and was sent to a sanitarium, where he has spent his life in a catatonic state ever since - and now his (now grown-up) baby sister Lana (Niki Notarile) has come to visit Nicholas (Stephen Muzzonigro) in the sanitarium - and that triggers something in Nicholas, who now kills several nurses and guards to get out of the sanitarium, then puts on a mask and goes on a killing spree, slaughtering pretty much everyone who's close to Lana to get to her and finish what he has started 20 years ago.

In the meantime, Dan Grant (Tony Dadika), the cop who has apprehended Nicholas 20 years ago and has been a close friend to the family ever since, was shot at in the line of duty and has fallen into a coma, but when Doc Pell (Dan Werzinger), former head of the sanitarium Nicholas was at, pays him a visit to give him the news, Dan awakens instantly and urges his young partner Colin (Brandon Slagle) to protect Lana in his stead. Colin has a few problems tracking her down, but when he does, he arrives just in time to save her from Nicholas, whom he shoots but doesn't kill.

Nicholas awakens in the hospital, and it seems he is back to normal, no more catatonia, no more homicidal tendencies, no nothing. But he claims he has never been insane but a creature called dollman has possessed him - and now the dollman has possessed Lana. Nobody believes him of course, nobody but Dan Grant, who actually helps him escape the hospital. Back home, Lana attacks her sister Melissa (Rachael Robbins) and is obviously really possessed by the dollman - but then Nicholas barges in, pins down Lana and makes the dollman repossess him, then he urges Melissa to shoot him before the dollman is able to take over - and after he grimaces menacingly, she does so, too.

 

The film starts out as a direct Halloween-rip-off with only a few variations (even fewer than your typical slasher film, actually), and it veers away from its blueprint only eventually, but never really attempts to be more than a formula movie - and yet both of these facts don't necessarily make Methodic a bad movie, it's the ending that really destroys all the promise the film has shown before (which wasn't much to begin with). Out of the blue, this is a film about possession? Really? And there is actually someone helping someone else escape who has tried to kill his own sister only hours ago? And this someone is a cop who has arrested the same man 20 years ago? And then the former madman saves the life of a girl he hardly knows by giving his own? And his sister is persuaded to shoot him by some menacing grimaces?

Has anybody actually ever thought this whole thing through? I mean, please ...
