Storyline

In London, four students have a call from the student accommodation office of the local university offering lodging in an old house. The psychic Jenny, the graphic design student Nick, and the couple of lovers/drug dealers Tom and Adele are welcomed by the weird Tina. Nick fixes a spirit clock, and soon Jenny sees the crimes that happened in the house in the past, when two lovers died. Along the two next days, Jenny, Nick, Tom and Adele disclose that each one of them have killed a person in the past and also that they are trapped in the house, since a ghost is claiming a killer for a killer to release the soul of Edmund Joseph. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

User Reviews

 
Pretty weak and boring.
22 May 2007 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Sweet-natured Jenny can hardly believe her luck when her new student accommodation turns out to be a sprawling,fully furnished mansion.Her housemates include a coke-snorting drug dealer,his girlfriend and a mysterious beauty.But Jenny starts to question her good fortune when a dusty grandfather clock suddenly whirs into action,summoning the ghosts of the house's former occupants and preventing its new ones from escaping to the outside world.Surprisingly dull teen horror flick that offers zero scares and very limited amount of gore.The acting is nothing to write about and the plot is predictable.5 out of 10 and I am being generous.
