The researchers are not alone. The soldier soon discovers that the institution is a hotbed of paranormal activity. But it doesn't take him long to realize that it's not the dead that he has to worry about. This script requires limited locations and a 'relatively' small cast. The location for the 'State Hospital' could be any one of a number of similar abandoned facilities and the opening WW II 'French Countryside" can be shot locally. I think it would be a strong feature film. I know that it would work well on a network such as the SyFy Channel.
