Storyline

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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not a complete waste of time.
10 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having been given free tickets to see this film, I decided to go and see it.

Granted, it wasn't the worst film I've ever seen however I felt that the plot was weak. The setting of a creepy old house was fantastic and having that mysterious locked door really did seem to feed on the audience's fear. The dream sequences were nicely done, as were the flashback scenes. Superb performances from Emma Catherwood.

Billie Piper was far better in Doctor Who and although there is nothing directly bad about her acting there is also nothing particularly great either. I'm no prude by all means but I thought this film would be more suited to an 18 certificate...

I would say this film is worth seeing once but not twice.
