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.

A Very Good Film
30 March 2006 | by DarthadSee all my reviews

I thought Spirit Trap would be rubbish, as other British horror films were. However Spirit Trap was packed full of anticipation, suspense and action.

The acting was rather good for low key actors. Known actors such as Luke Mably's acting was a bit dodge compared to his performance in Dream Team. Sam Troughton's acting was better than this acting in Alien V Predator. Unknown actors such as Emma Catherwood and Russian singer/actor Alsou performances were rather good in the roles. However Billie Piper's acting was not as good as it was in Dr Who, but she managed to pull off the lead role in this movie.

The storyline and script were both excellent and really made this film, however there was a bit too much crammed into this film for the time allotted. The location and scenery were rather good as well and the make up and costumes.

This movie for me was a cross between House On Haunted Hill and Long Time Dead with all the added wow and suspense factor. I also enjoyed the twist in the movie and it will keep you on the edge of you seat. I watched this movie with my sister and she also thought It would be completely rubbish and she really enjoyed it (but she don't want to admit it).

As a keen horror movie fan I have seen crap ( Ghost Watcher ) and excellent ( Freddy V Jason ) horrors and I would recommend people to give this film a chance because I will change your life. I hope to see these actors in leading roles in the future.
