It's apropos that a film about a demolition turns out to be such a devastating bomb
14 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The O.C.'s Mischa Barton stars as Sam Walczak, a demolition engineer whom first job is to demolish a building located in the desolate swamps of Scotland. Upon arriving she finds that the building isn't as empty as she was led to believe (some tenants have inexplicably stayed), as well as the fact that the location may very well be haunted by the victims of the people that the architect of said building happened to entombed within it's walls.

What started off as a slightly intriguing original story soon and all too readily devolved into a badly acted, scare-free, soap opera-ish. Barton does absolutely nothing to entice the viewer's waning interest and her co-stars (some of whoms acting is laughably bad) are not any better. Just when you think it can't get any worse, one of the characters (who shall remain nameless as to avoid spoilers) falls down a hole and it does... Perhaps with better acting, a more cohesive story, some scares and better directing, this film might have worthwhile to watch, as it stands now, that's sadly quite simply not the case. (and don't even get me started on the ending)

My Grade: D
