Storyline

Three young people head to a remote holiday apartment complex, left vacant during the off-season, for a drunken weekend. They are Alice, her best friend Lizzy, and Lizzy's perverted, douchebag boyfriend Carl. There is not one redeeming quality to Carl. This is a man who can only get an erection from smelling his own excrement. He is a textbook bad cad sleazy enough to make perverted passes at Alice when Lizzy isn't looking, yet charming enough to remain inappropriately entertaining at party time. Things quickly take a turn for the worst. The group gets trapped in one of the high-floor apartments, unable to escape. No one knows they are there. They have no way to contact the outside world. Food and water grow scarce. Desperation sinks in. Is this all just a series of unfortunate events, or is there something supernatural behind it? Written by lament

Trivia

The director was not allowed to shoot with a tripod in Highgate cemetery so had to improvise by balancing the camera on the sound recordist's head. See more »

Goofs

The interior walls would be far less durable than the exterior ones. The group could have easily broke through into another unit and from there into a stairwell. That this never occurs to the protagonists seems to be rather odd. See more »

Bold, brave and different! Took balls to make this.
9 January 2017 | by jezdavSee all my reviews

Must say, am not a huge fan of this movie after watching, as I feel it did have some issues. Although this is to be expected of course given the natural limitations of a low budget horror.

Despite it's flaws this movie does get a lot of things rights and is a very bold attempt to try and do something different and for that alone I highly commend it as this was so refreshing to see. Was relieved not to have sat through another empty rehash.

It must've took real f****** balls to make something like this in a market that's over- stuffed and over-filled to the brim with generic middle of the road SAFE horror pics.

Some genuine creepy moments in this too. Like on a whole another level of CREEPY!!!!

As for it's flaws, it would have been great to have seen more of Alice's backstory so that we can understand more about her relationship with her father, although I understand why a lot of this was left ambitious and open to speculation.

Also, some of the best bits of this movie are when the two girls are uncovering the fate of those who were trapped in the apartment before they were (won't spoil it here) but it would've been great to have explored this more and to have seen more evidence of 'those who came before'

Certainly don't regret watching and would recommend.
