In London, four students have a call from the student accommodation office of the local university offering lodging in an old house. The psychic Jenny, the graphic design student Nick, and the couple of lovers/drug dealers Tom and Adele are welcomed by the weird Tina. Nick fixes a spirit clock, and soon Jenny sees the crimes that happened in the house in the past, when two lovers died. Along the two next days, Jenny, Nick, Tom and Adele disclose that each one of them have killed a person in the past and also that they are trapped in the house, since a ghost is claiming a killer for a killer to release the soul of Edmund Joseph.

Another nail in the coffin for British horror movies
Everything that's wrong with this pic has been covered already. I was reserving judgement until about eight seconds into the dire opening theme music & credits and it all went progressively downhill from there.I started to notice little things like....their suitcases/packs were carried about in the opening scenes like they were empty or in the packs case stuffed with bubblewrap. I know it's a minor thing but if they can't get that right what chance the rest of the film?. The set, as mentioned, looked as if it had soaked up most of the budget but still looked like it was designed and built by Dan Dan the Am Dram Man. The script was dire, the acting was passable in places but nothing special and the plot flaws and general credibility of some of the scenes lacked commonsense. Now I know students aren't the tidiest of creatures and I was one once but a badly flooded bathroom is a pretty serious issue in terms of damage to electrics and rooms below as well as general mopping up - not in this film. How some people rated this with more than two stars is beyond me. What would they give a really excellent exceptional movie?. As for Billie Piper...if this was a springboard into serious acting then I'd seriously revive the 'pop' career.
