Shrouded in a veil of mystery, Sonja Daneel arrives at the luxurious Hotel Njala, which belongs to the Joubert family, to start as the establishment's new receptionist. However, following a freak car accident, Daleen can't remember who she is, where she comes from or why she chose to accept a position at this place. With the help of the cynical lieutenant Conrad Nolte, Sonja hesitantly sweeps aside the veil of her forgotten memories and begins to uncover disturbing details about Hotel Njala and the Jouberts. A series of murders shocks all involved with the Hotel to the core. Sonja Daneel realises - only by confronting her true identity can she save her life and put the ghost that has haunted her past to rest.Written by
Forget the naysayers. This film wasn't shot on a shoestring production like Blair Witch, and it is not a big budgeted Hollywood Blockbuster either. It is a legitimate attempt at a decent suspense and should be given a fair chance in a Tinseltown-dominated environment where smaller independent film makers have great ideas which never see the light.
Everyone was nailed to their seats until the end, and that is what a suspense film is supposed to do. It is not a horror slasher, but I'd bet a fair amount that if someone tapped me on the shoulder during the film, I'd be in a row closer to the front.
I would say that character progression could have been a bit more emphasized, that's my only gripe.
