Shining antithesis.
25 April 2009 | by hitechcleaning5See all my reviews

Not since "The Shining" has a film in this genre captivated me unequivocally. What makes it so is simply the reverse of the former insofar as there was only one truly insane character. "Walled In" has only one sane character surrounded by a gaggle of obsessed, deranged, demented and wretched characters.

Sam is exposed to her deepest fears and her most convulsive nightmares as she attempts to make sense out of something that travels far beyond that which is sensible. Her engineering discipline is immediately compromised as she confronts the lunacy of the other characters and of the building she is hired to destroy.

The blueprints read a dubious meaning due to being incorrect by engineering standards and utterly preposterous in terms of what she discovers, either by accident or design. Her curiosity compels her to confront her fears as she leads and is led into secret passageways pointing to the reality of her terror.

The building itself emulates the ancient pyramids in reverse as evidenced by the form of the windows. What is consistent is the self tortured architect's believe that a building can have soul only if human beings are sacrificed within its walls, an irony not easily discounted.

The affects of all the various forms of torture, insanity and oppression are virtually unimaginable as Sam struggles to live within the depths of a nightmare. Deftly played by Ms. Barton and ably supported by a finely honed production staff and equally as adept actors, the film gave me some nightmares of my own.
