Storyline

Unemployed and broke, Owen is having a terrible week. It's not until he saves a wealthy Japanese businessman from a couple of thugs that Owen's luck begins to change. He's promised an easy job with very good pay. $500 a night. 5 nights a week. All Owen has to do is wear a uniform, sit in a chair and make sure that an ominous door is never opened. Following an unexpected late night visit, Owen soon finds himself stepping into the darkness, unsure if he will survive the night or escape the fate that waits for him behind The Door.

Surprisingly good!
23 November 2014 | by relax1977See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that tends to end up with a bunch of 10 star reviews from people involved with the movie and a bunch of 1 star reviews from people who watched it expecting a 10 star movie. This is not a 10 star movie BUT if you watch it with an open mind, it's surprisingly good! The acting and dialog is pretty much exactly as bad as you'd expect from a low budget movie like this but the concept and the story itself surprised me with how good it was. It rather reminded me of a good short story, they didn't over-complicate things, didn't over explain things, they just told a good story with minimal special effects and maximum horror.

I'm not kidding about the low budget BTW, you could remake this entire movie using nothing but a half dozen of your friends, a rented warehouse and the assorted junk from your attic! Basically this movie showed what can be done with if you have an interesting story and nothing else.

Basically it was pure elegance in its simplicity! Big budget movies could learn a thing or two by watching this one.
