Factual errors: When Sara is cleared to climb to 10500 to avoid weather, the camera cuts to a shot of the altimeter. Based on the shot, the altimeter starts off showing them at 6000ft, which is about right. But the altimeter's hand is making an entire sweep about every two seconds, which indicates a rate of climb of around 30000 feet per minute. It is physically impossible for a twin engine turboprop to climb at that rate.See more »

'Twilight Zone' with horror teens: great premise ruined by horrible script, 11 January 2014
Author: Gabriel Teixeira from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A group of teenagers go on a small airplane trip; however, midflight they are caught in a strange, supernatural storm as they have to fight for their lives against both a supernatural force and the airplane malfunctions.

I came by this film as a recommendation from a friend; indeed, the concept starts off nicely enough and the twists are incredibly well done, complete with a good and somewhat open ending. There is quite a good mood created throughout the film, and the setting of a small airplane is almost claustrophobic (excusing the many technical inconsistencies in regards to airplane flying). This ends up as less of a stereotypical horror and more of a twisty, reality-questioning full length 'Twilight Zone' episode.

On the other hand, the film itself is a waste of its excellent concept. The script is very poor, with some of the worst pieces of dialogue I've seen; the characters are overly idiotic and stereotyped, nothing but completely unlikable, angsty and bickering teens, in truth most of the deaths end up as a 'good riddance' moment (I ca't help liking the entity for that). The acting is also very weak, though it is hard to say if the fault is of the actors or just the script; at the very least the actresses make for a refreshing sight among all that dark atmosphere.

Overall, this is an excellent concept made failure by its terrible script. It is twisted and really thought-provoking at times, complete with the reality bending trope I love, yet even that couldn't excuse the abysmal horror teens that somehow wormed their place in this picture.

A shame, it could have been a great film if only they employed some thought on the characters too.
