Molly, together with her three art student friends, embark upon a mission to find an empty house in London, with the view to the living as squatters, free from rent, and free to party. Having found the ideal squat, they break in and go about the merry business of dressing the stark interior to reflect their artistic selves. Darkness pervades their new dwelling place, a darkness through which they discover the full implications of their intrepid choice. A nightmare unfolds that traps the viewer and protagonists alike in a terrifying and unforgiving new reality. Who or what is orchestrating their bloody demise and why? The house appeared to be empty and yet a malevolent force is clearly at work. Written by
Though the beginning seems very strong and I kinda hoped it would try and stay as focused throughout its course. Unfortunately it lost a bit of its drive. Which had not only to do with the fact, that it became predictable, but was also short on original ideas. And no one does not necessarily come hand in hand with the other. A movie can be predictable, but still have good ideas at hand.
This seemed to have lost its way after the first 10-15 minutes. The characters are drawn strong enough to at least care for them. But they are not really portrayed that good enough, to elevate the movie above its central idea. Good intentions, but the script could have done with a bit of re-work ...
