Imprisoned on the top floor of their vacation home by a violent paranormal force, three friends must find their way out before starvation, dehydration and panic take hold and all hell breaks loose culminating in horrific attempts to stay alive.
I am not sure I understood the film in its entirety, although I think I do but won't say.
Alice (Eaoifa Forward) goes away for a holiday with Lizzy (Rachel Warren) and Lizzy's boyfriend Carl (Dan Paton). They are going to stay in a vacation condo that is not occupied during the off season. In the opening scene we see a cemetery, a spider, and a rotting bunny which appears to be just imagery for later and not a real tie-in to the film.
We get an early indication Alice may have that "daddy issue" amateur film makers can't leave alone. Carl is on the male testosterone side of things as he seems to want Alice when Lizzy isn't around. Then they get trapped on the top floor...elevator doesn't work, stair door is sealed, phone is out, water is turned off, and the food gets rotten like that rabbit we saw in the first scene. Alice has nightmares and illusions as our threesome gets desperate.
The film centers on Alice. How and why this is happening we don't know, nor does it give any real closure other than maybe....Most of the film we get to see Alice is in some sort of despair or melancholy mood, never smiling, always writing sadly into her diary. The film spent almost all of its time on the trapped floor showing us attempts of escape and imagery that didn't allow us to connect. I will say, the production was well made and acted, although the entertainment value waned as the film went on. Personally I would have worked more on the door.
This didn't make any sense. There was not one second of this movie that tied in with any other second of the movie. Each second was a different low budget foreign horror scene. No one will understand this. Don't purchase.
