Once he begins to delve deeper into the building's sinister history and investigate its shadowy owners and past employees, Brett soon uncovers a malevolent force nestled deep in the bowels of the building that will do anything to be set free into our world.
Kim Newman (English film critic, and fiction writer) in his FrightFest review said, "Nightworld: this may be Valladares' best film to date, and is oddly reticent in its excesses, given that it riffs on the likes of Michael Winner's The Sentinel, Dario Argento's Inferno and Lucio Fulci's 'doors of hell' movies."

Brett adds a log book entry for 10/27/15 and then the camera pans to the monitors and they say 6/10/2016. See more »
I agree with a number of other reviews of this film: it started off really well. The acting was good, the premise strong, and the direction was deliberate and moody. However, where it should have kicked into high gear, it actually sort of fell apart. The last act could have stood at least one more good pass at the script, and the low budget really didn't help there either.
Overall I would say that you should know that the ending won't be as satisfying as you might like, and armed with that information you might enjoy it more. Unfortunately the movie must be thought of as a lost opportunity.
