Goofs

When entering the lift shaft, considering they are on the top floor that would mean the lift car is either on the same floor or below them. The car is below and no steel cables visible connecting the car to the lift motor room which would be at roof level in this type of tower block. See more »

been there done that, sort of
6 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, it wasn't great and it wasn't bad, it was what you make of it. Leave all your "buts" at the door and just accept the silliness of what's ahead. If you want a short, shoot em up, barracking for the Disadvantaged people movie, then maybe see this movie. I applauded film makers having a go, coming up with new story lines, new concepts, however we have had this concept of "escaping the unknown" plenty of times, but not so many times have we seen it in this environment, especially in U.K films.. Give it a go and like I said, leave your "buts" at the door.... because you never know what's lurking behind it..
