Ever watch a movie and when it's over you wish you could get that time back? In February 2008 Dark Floors was released.
Pete Riski directed this fantasy/horror surrounding a handful of unfortunate souls trapped between two worlds.
cast that plays the unfortunate souls are, Noah Huntley as Ben, Skye
Bennett as Sarah, Donminique McElligott as Emily, William Hope as Jon,
Leon Herbert as Rick Ronald Pickup as Tobias, Philp Brethorton as Walter
and lead monster Lordi as Mr. Lordi (all the monsters Kita, Amen, Ox
and Awa are in band called Lordi).
While Ben is at the hospital
seeking treatment for his daughter Sarah, all would seem normal. Not
happy with the news Ben just wants to take Sarah home. Ben, Sarah and
the nurse Emily board the elevator with a few other people, so Emily and
Ben can continue talking. A sudden stop, a flicker of lights and when
the doors open... they soon realize this isn't the floor anyone would
want off at.
For 85 minutes I watched this flick... 85minutes.
Yeah it has a mind game kinda thing going on. Once you catch on your
like, got it... nice! Then that's really it, because overall the story
is not so great and the script is decent at best. Now the sets on the
other hand were really good and the make up was really cool to look at.
You just can't stay with something that looks good for that long. I like
when a movie hits the who, what, when, where and why. Maybe not all but
a few makes for a good story. I got who and where in this flick, then
wondered why I watched it.
It carries an R rating due to the
violence and disturbing images (the monsters are killer looking, thanks
to Lordi). Really I was just disturbed by how long it took to get to the
I'll give it 2 stars, 3 if they can give me back
my 85 minutes. Keep checking back for updates folks, lets see if the
rating ever changes...
