A new take on Silent Hill..., 28 March 2009
Author: SeptumSin from United States

It has been a while since I've rated a movie and Dark Floors isn't exactly the best movie to make my comeback on.

Dark Floors starts as a concerned father tries to get his daughters medical problems diagnosed. He isn't satisfied with them not curing her within the first day of testing so he decides to take her out of the hospital w/o their knowing. Unfortunately the elevator takes them to a strange evil hospital where they must try and survive.

Man this does have some coolness as it really reminds me of another version of Silent Hill where we see the real world and the twisted dream world. The story is fairly interesting at first but unfortunately it gets boring quickly as the sit for periods and do pretty much nothing...I mean really there is a part where they spend nearly five minutes attacking a wall. The movie is part interesting but it can be worse as far as horror movies go.

If you have the time and attention this is an fair watch...
