Wall-to-wall derivative horror drivel.
5 October 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Any film that begins with a small girl, trapped in a wall cavity, being smothered by cement, immediately gets my attention, but sadly nothing that follows is quite as arresting as this cool pre-credits sequence. Mischa Barton plays Samantha Walczak, a young structural engineer sent to evaluate an apartment building in the middle of nowhere that has been scheduled for demolition. The building, designed by eccentric architect Joseph Malestrazza, has a terrible history—15 years earlier, a serial killer buried people alive in the walls—and it soon becomes apparent that the horror isn't over.

With its creepy care-taker Mary (Deborah Kara Unger) and her strange son Jimmy (Cameron Bright), a couple of crazy tenants, a massive mausoleum-like entrance hall, lots of gloomy hallways, and a few hidden architectural features that hold long lost secrets, there is no shortage of atmosphere in the fortress-like Malestrazza building, but the film as a whole isn't as structurally sound as its chilling locale. It has several obvious weaknesses that threaten to bring the whole mess tumbling down without the need for explosives: there is lots of creepiness, but very little genuine horror, the performances are forgettable, the story takes an age to go nowhere, with a disappointing resolution, and the execution is tired and predictable (director Gilles Paquet-Brenner even chucks in a blatant variation on the Nightmare On Elm Street nursery rhyme, as if horror fans wouldn't notice).
