Storyline

After Kate's friend Monica invites her to help clean up an old opera house where her mother was killed in a play she starred in, she is skeptical. But when the doors suddenly get locked from the outside, she has good reason to be. She starts having visions of her dead mother getting killed down in the basement and everyone starts to see a mysterious clown. When people start dying they decide that they have to get out quick. When the clock hits twelve, someone wants her to be in the final scene with them. Written by Kyle <Kyleshivers@aol.com>

Not Bad, But Not Great Either.
17 March 2003 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

This movie is okay but i think more time should have been put into it...and the casting of actors. Yes, the clown was scary but this movie reminds me a lot of Phantom of the Opera. It tells me that this movie is not original at all... I can see where the director is going but the tunnel is just too far.. i can think of better horror movies than this.
