Format:DVD
Dark Floors is a rare horror film that may entice some viewers but may have them leaving the viewing experience with mixed feelings. This films starts off on the right foot, setting up a dark tone from the start and placing the audience in the midst of what initially appears to be a great horror film. The opening scenes are promising; a little girl with a disability is being tested at a hospital for possible treatments. Always armed with a paper and crayon, the little girl seems to be drawing events before they occur. This leaves the audience to believe that either she is psychic or she can see the dead. A plot twist that could add to the overall "horror" of the film.

However, the story becomes more complicated when it's revealed to the audience that somehow time has frozen. This causes a ripple effect on the characters within the film by leaving their past, future, and present selves to all be capable of interacting with one another. The actors experience encounters with themselves in many instances, including shooting themselves and talking to themselves over the hospital's intercom. All of these events are gradually explained, all while the cast is busy fighting off various monsters that all seem to be after the young girl, for an undisclosed reason that is never fully revealed to the viewer, making the overall plot very difficult to follow and/or comprehend. The film, at one point, even has a "Silent Hill" type moment where the cast is somehow placed in a different dimension where they cannot interact with the people they see until returning to the alternate world in which they are trapped. This never truly adds to the film, in fact it only contributes to a higher level of confusion overall for the audience in an already difficult to understand plot.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm Still Looking For The "Dark" Part... November 14, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Lordi for six years now, meaning that I was listening to their music long before they won Eurovision and gained international fame. Thus far, I have loved everything the band has done, including their 2004 short film, "The Kin". Needless to say, I was excited when the band first announced their plans to make a full-length horror movie. It made sense: of all the bands in the world, which would be better suited to make a movie about monsters than the Finnish ambassadors of shock rock? The film originally premiered in February 2008, but I endured an extra ten months for the DVD release. This proved a wise decision, as it turned out, for had I been in a theater, the monsters themselves would likely have come down to tell me to stifle my groans of disappointment.

The story: Sarah (Skye Bennett, Against the Dark) is a little girl suffering from an unknown mental illness. When her father (Noah Huntley, 28 Days Later) attempts to remove her from the hospital, they and a group of strangers comprised of a benevolent nurse (Dominique McElligot, "On Home Ground"), a brave security guard (Leon Herbert, "The Paradise Club"), a paranoid commuter (William Hope, Aliens), and a disturbed homeless man (Ronald Pickup, "Waters of the Moon") find themselves trapped in the building as it undergoes a dark transformation and becomes filled with bloodthirsty monsters.

I tried approaching this movie in different ways, trying to make it work for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dark Floors April 25, 2010
Format:DVD
A father and his invalid daughter are trapped in a deserted hospital along with several other strangers as the dark hallways come to life with gruesome demons. DARK FLOORS is a stagnant haunted hospital tale that never gets off the ground. It feels like a scrapbook of more successful Horror features butchered in to a single incoherent film where the characters just wander about the halls aimlessly for over an hour. When the occasional demon does appear, the characters are rarely frightened or even stunned. The decayed hospital setting is sufficiently creepy, but the only workable elements of the entire film lie in the creature FX and costuming of the demons themselves. Considering the costumes belonged to the Shock Rocker band Lordi, and that the film was initially conceived as a poor excuse to mass market the band on the international market, it cant even take credit for these creations. DARK FLOORS proves to be a bland, uninspired, and unoriginal Horror film that relies far too heavily on the strength of its villains while forgetting about minor elements like character or plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars WTF???? July 18, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a confusing review for me to do, as I can not say the movie made any sense, but yet, somehow it's watchable and entertaining.

A somewhat autistic girl comes out of a cat scan and for no apparent reason her, her father and a few others end up in the twilight zone as they become stuck in time/in a parallel universe/in a time loop... it's hard to decipher what the heck is going on. While they confront a ghost, demons ripped off of Predator and the Mummy and zombies while trying to find a way out of this dark hospital.

Like I said, this movie made no sense to me, why it's happening, what the point of the ending is or if anything at all made any sense, and usually i'd rate a movie like that very low, but somehow, it was entertaining.
