review by
Mike Haberfelner

It should have been nothing more than a kinky night at a sex club between friends Sandy (Alysa King), Nancy (Gwenlyn Cumyn), Ren (Dennis Andres) and Fred (George Krissa), but then Fred is pulled under the bed and killed horribly, Ren is hanged by a force unseen, a guy who comes to the rescue gets pretty much broken into tiny pieces, and Sandy and Nancy realise they're only safe as long as they stay on the bed they've initially chosen for their fun and games, once they hit the floor they're as good as dead ...

Virgil (Colin Price) is a cop investigating a quintuple murder at a sex club - and yes, it's the murder of Fred, Ren, the guy who tried to help the girls, and ... Sandy and Nancy. The case makes little sense as it is, but then Virgil receives a text from Sandy. He gets into a conversation with her and comes to the realisation that he's conversing with Sandy from several hours back in time - so there is a chance to retroactively save her and Sandy ... but the question is how? And then whatever it is makes more and more attempts to lure Sandy and Nancy off their bed to their deaths ...

 

Ok, I'm not even pretending to claim that The Dwelling makes perfect sense, as it clearly doesn't - in fact it asks for more suspension of disbelief than most horror movies, and refuses to give any straight answers. But that doesn't make The Dwelling a bad film at all, in fact its very nightmarish logic (or lack thereof) really works to create tension, to deepen the mystery and to freak the audience out in the process, thus getting everybody in the right mindset to empathize with the lead characters. And of course, a atmosphere-heavy directorial effort helps in this respect, as does a strong cast.

A very solid spooker for sure!
