Patients are never strapped in or sedated in a cat-scan because the straps may make the heart rate increase and cause anxiety and increased brain activity and sedatives kills brain activity. Doctors who preform these test are looking for anomalies at a resting or normal brain activity rate. See more »
The main problem with this is that it is a Finnish film (for Finns at least)
I got to say that i went to see this movie with low expectations. I didn't believe that a Lordi movie could be good because i actually couldn't imagine it as a whole. Though, after i saw the movie i was amazed at how well the writers and the director pulled it off.
It is often said that horror is the most delicate type of movie because there is only a slight difference between scary and ridiculous. but this doesn't concern Dark Floors because it is not (atleast in my mind) a full blooded horror movie. The movie has many horror elements but doesn't still come off as horrorish. That doesn't make it bad it just means that you can't go in to the theater wishing that you will be scared out of your nickers.
The visual and audio feel of the movie was excellent all the way and there is nothing anyone can say about that. The plot did leave a annoying amount of plot holes and the ending didn't really clear any of them up and the viewer was just left to quess what the plot was all about. Still it didn't bother half as much as the under use of the Lordi band members. I have never liked Lordi and never listened to them but while watching this movie i became interested in the different monsters they play. Sadly, the plot did hardly nothing at all to use the unique backgrounds and looks of the different ghoul part from the different superpowers they all demonstrated. What i am saying is that i would have liked this movie to be more about the monsters than the victims... really who gave a goddamn thing for what happened to the all knowing copper or the businessman type. The only character i got even a bit curious was the weird hobo with superpowers and a weird telepathic relationship with the girl but he is never explained in any way(a big mistake).
In retrospect i think they could have done a lot more better but i also think that there is a lot of good in this film also and i hope it will be a success financially. There is just one thing Finns can't tolerate: a successful Finnish movie if it is not a drama.
