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?


During the middle of a scene from the latter part of the film where the characters are weak and sickly, the director took a rubbish sack filled with rotten food and held it over Dan Paton's face telling him to inhale, sending him into a nauseous, trance like state. 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 »

Trailer is misleading, movie is unbalanced and unterrifying
28 May 2017 | by kieranmtwilliamsonSee all my reviews

What got me interested in watching this movie was the trailer, which turned out to be very misleading. It made it look as if it was going to be a bit of a creepy jumper horror, however it was quite the opposite. Scenes that were meant to be creepy were boring, and there was one scene that makes you jump throughout and it wasn't anything terrifying. Any movie producers that feel the need to mislead viewers with the trailer must know that their product is garbage.

Good notes would be the acting, as always with most British movies it is spot on, and the way it is shot is pretty good especially that end scene of the apartment they were trapped in. However that does not justify the unbalanced way the plot plays out, and how it drags without anything interesting happening.

So much potential not reached.
