Three young people head to a remote holiday apartment complex, left vacant during the off-season. They are Alice, her best friend Lizzy, and Lizzy's perverted boyfriend Carl. Things quickly take a turn for the worst, as 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?

Did You Know?


The director, C.A. Cooper insisted on shooting the film chronologically with conditions on set becoming increasingly more intense and 'method' throughout. Towards the latter half of the film the actors were not allowed to talk to each other and were kept in separate rooms. Dan Paton often went hours without eating. See more »


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 »

User Reviews

WOW!! Truly horrific!!....A well put together tense, taut, thriller.
9 January 2017 | by teddyparkin-32564See all my reviews

So many layers, so much going on, difficult to take it all in on the first watch. Certainly requires a second viewing.

If I had to be really critical I would say that I feel like maybe they should have tried harder to find a way out of the apartment and should have tried to find alternate exit routes. It felt as if they gave up a little too easily....but then again, this is no ordinary scenario, since there is this evil demonic force manipulating things from below the surface.

My partner and I talked for ages afterwards trying to unravel what it is that actually dwells in the apartment and whether or not it was real or part of some strange fantasy concocted by the main character.

Don't watch whilst eating.....felt so sick watching parts of it but totally worth it.

Ain't gonna be able to put this one out my head or a while.
