Pa-the-tic
16 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

PA-THE-TIC If you find boredom scary then 'Walled In' is truly terrifying.

I'm not sure what the producers' plan was to take an incoherent story, really bad acting, really really bad production quality and mixing them together.

The plot: A small town's (the typical horror movie small where cell phones and the internet don't work per horror movie criteria) factory and only source of employment closes down and leaves a 10 story apartment building standing in the middle of nowhere. A serial killer begins picking off the residents and entombing them into the building.

15 or so years after the murders Sam Walczak (Get it!) your typical female, recent college grad, demolitions expert is sent to demolish the almost abandoned building.

"Almost" as there are still people living there. Sam even decides to stay in one of the apartments. Of course it is never explained why a 10 story rotting building with only a few squatters and set to be demolished still has working utilities.

So what scary things happen to Sam? Nothing! And no the squatters don't turn out to be the ghosts of the victims. It's just plain boring.

I cannot think of a single reason to see 'Walled In.'
