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.

If you're a Lordi fan, then seeing the band members as the monsters in this film is perhaps a good enough reason to check it out. They 2006/ECS winning lineup is present, and though they don't get a lot of screen time, they're all there and some effort is made to bring in their individual mythologies (especially Amen). Still, they're not on screen for that long, no Lordi music is used as part of the movie (except for the credits), and as monsters, they're not really that important to the plot other than to provide reasons for the protagonists to run or die. Only Mr. Lordi is significant but only as the embodiment of the evil in this film's alternative dimension.

If you're not a Lordi fan, Dark Floors is an interesting Silent-Hill-like film that does some things very well but is a mixed bag in so many other ways. It's never a 'bad' horror film, and it's better than some of the bigger budget dreck that comes out. It's highly atmospheric, visually beautiful, and the performances are across the board acceptable if never good or great. The Lordi band members as the monsters sorta work but mostly don't because nothing about them feels inherent in the Silent-Hillish atmosphere of the film. There's no reason for a mummy to be there other than Amen's character is a homage to the classic Mummy horror films; nor do Kita or OX make any inherent sense. Awa and Mr. Lordi come the closest as a ghost and a demonic embodiment of darkness, but still, it's a stretch. Otherwise, it does some smart things by playing with time and reoccurring events that add to the atmospheric quality. None of it, however, ever really rises consistently to good, though moments can be excellent if viewed independently of the film.

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.
