Must see for horror movie fans Nov. 5 2009
By Medina Medeni - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie is one of the best horror movies I've seen. The movie is very creepy, tense and has some "jumpy" moments. The movie has a great plot, acting is very good and the ending is original. The moral of the story...the best part. Loved it.

Solid Effort Dec 16 2010
By Eric Sanberg - Published on
Format: DVD
Though not a great movie this is a solid, honest effort for those looking for something with a bit more resonance in a horror movie.

Jesse Bradford (who could easily pass for Colin Ferrell's brother) plays Bobby. Recently out of prison, he's trying to put his life back together. He moves into his recently deceased mother's apartment and weird stuff starts happening. He's seeing and hearing things that, as it turns out, are not really happening. But his girlfriend and others in the building are experiencing the same hallucinations involving a resident cop who may have beaten his wife to death. So what's the scoop?

That's where the movie falters. It does a decent enough job of building things and planting clues, but in any movie of this sort everything usually builds to a punchline. Here the punchline never comes. The movie just sort of stops and things aren't resolved.

This has a lot going for it. The performances are good. The set direction is great. The building where most events take place is an old New York City building long in need of repair. Everything has a run down, decrepit feeling to it which adds to the overall sense of despair. The shuddering, Japanese style, ghostly apparitions have been overplayed in too many horror movies as of late. Thank God they keep it to a minimum here. But, overall, this has a good look and feel to it. The music score is good and, overall, it's a very professional effort. Had the producers figured a way to provide a more satisfying ending, this would be worth another star.

Would love to give this five stars... May 4 2010
By Gotham Night - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
...but I won't. I felt cheated by the ending of this movie. The beginning was unique and atmospheric, mysterious and intriguing. But toward the end it turned into just another horror movie explanation ending, and the horror itself was more pathetic and a social commentary rather than scary. I don't think the secret of the building was worthy of the psychosis that it inspired in the residents of the building. I think the premise for the movie seemed better in the screen writer's mind than it looked on film. I would have rather not had any explanation at the end and I think I would have enjoyed this movie more. For me it was a letdown, but it was still worth the viewing.

What if you refused to help someone and they came back for revenge because of it? May 7 2010
By Andrea Van Scoyoc - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
~This review will appear in the June 2010 issue of Twisted Dreams Magazine~

Have you ever seen someone in need and offered to help? Or are you one of those people who passes people by and thinks, someone else will do it - don't get involved?

What if your lack of involvement caused devastating circumstances to the victim? What if because of your refusal to help, they sought vengeance against you?

Meet Bobby. Newly out of jail (and I later found out that it was not his fault and was reminded of how badly the American "justice" system sucks. But you'll have to watch to find out why he was jailed!) and just wanting to start over again. He tries to pick up the pieces of what was once his life and moves into his deceased mother's apartment.

And that's when the trouble starts.

It begins with noises, odd and troubling sounds that wake him up and then the visions of his dead mother begin to play havoc with his mind and he is slowly sucked into a never-ending nightmare.

His neighbor, Gina (Calzado) is an abused wife whose husband, Walter (played with far too chilling realism by Durand) likes to come home and smack around on both her and their daughter, Carly.

Bobby may have been in prison, but he still won't stand for his neighbor - cop or not - to beat on his wife and kid and tries to help...but things just start getting stranger.

The visions begin to happen more and more frequently and it's not just Bobby who finds himself thrust into the middle of something he doesn't understand. The visions also begin to manifest themselves to Alyssa (Warner) and to other tenants of the building.

However...the more Bobby tries to help, the more dangerous Walter becomes with devastating consequences to Gina and Carly.

But things are not as they seem and as Bobby slowly loses his sanity (or so he feels) he finds out the real reason why he's being tormented and what he has to do to stop it.

This is a great Noir movie, simply seething with dark tension and chills. I sat on my couch, anxiously anticipating each scene and was so involved that my husband looked at me and said, "Holding hands with yourself, dear?"
I looked down and my hands were clamped so tightly together I was cutting off circulation.

Dark, tragic and with a stellar performance by Kevin Durand as the wife-beating cop that will leave you hating him, but feeling solemn compassion for him as well, culminate to a head in the explosive ending and you'll never quite look at cops...or apartment buildings the same, ever again.

Surprisingly good Oct. 23 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie I got to watch on TV yesterday, I will be buying it. I was pleasantly surprised by this flick. I wont sit here and bore you with what it was about, because there are other reviews for that, but I would definitely recommend this movie for sure. I especially like the ending, which was also a surprise because most movies now a days have crappy endings, or cliffhanger ones, this one had a good "it's actually over" kind of ending. Don't expect any gore or anything, this movie is basically a ghost story. But I recommend the movie, go check it out.
