Interesting concept, indifferent execution
20 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ALTITUDE is a low rent Canadian B-movie set entirely in a single location: a small plane occupied by five of the most annoying teenage characters you'll see on film. The general purpose of the plot sees their flight interrupted by increasingly bizarre events that seem to be linked to a tragedy from the past. There's a TWILIGHT ZONE feel to the story as the characters are tested to the limit by their extreme situation.

Sadly none of this is believable as the film is saddled with sub-par special effects and some very poor acting. The dialogue is also pretty bad, with every single character coming across as unlikeable, so it's one of those ones where I was wishing for their death en masse. It has to be said that the reveal is also rather unbelievable, even with the explicitly Lovecraftian addition to the story which I rather enjoyed. The whole "psychic trauma" angle was taken from previous productions so there's nothing really new here, it's just a twist on an old premise.
