Storyline

When a window-washer falls to his death from the side of a Barcelona high-rise office building (also killing an unsuspecting pedestrian), security consultant Dennis Randall is called in to investigate. Although he first believes the deaths to be accidental, he soon comes to realize that some strange force is at work inside the building. What could be causing these accidents? More importantly, is there any way it can be stopped? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

Near the end of the movie (the final climactic scene), the lead actress Jenny Agutter is running through the halls of the building and down the stairs. There are several shots of her feet, and her shoes change color between shots several times from taupe to black. This continues to happen until the scene comes to an end and her fate is "sealed" so to speak. See more »

Would have been better in more capable hands

Dennis Randall (Michael Moriarty), a security agent with slight psychic ability, is assigned to cover a strange series of accidents in a high rise in Barcelona. All of the mishaps seem to happen around Carolyn Page (Jenny Agutter), the building's architect. Sensing he needs to bring in the big guns, Randall recruits paranormal investigator Max Gold (Theodore Bikel) and psychic Sergie (Kevin McCarthy) to battle the vengeful spirit with the building.

Skyscrapers provide great settings and were all the rage for horror films in the 80s (THE LIFT, DEMONS 2, POLTERGEIST III), but this one is the lesser of the bunch. The film had a troubled production history as it was started by Freddie Francis but he left and it was finished by Ken Wiederhorn. The final directing credit goes to one Ken Barnett. The biggest problem with the film is that it drags you from point A to B at a snail's pace, long after you have figured out the mystery. If the film is worth seeing for anything, it is the performance by Moriarty (whose name is misspelled as "Moriarity" in the opening credits). He is clearly plastered in this and often looks like he is about to crack a smile with his loud delivery. In addition to this, Moriarty also starred in A RETURN TO SALEM'S LOT, IT'S ALIVE III and THE HANOI HILTON all in the same year. Now that is impressive.
