review by
Mike Haberfelner

Room 203 of a certain apartment building has a dark history, as over the decades it was the place of many brutal deaths and murders - but for freshmen college students Kim (Francesca Xuereb) and Izzy (Victoria Vinyarska) it's also heaven, it's roomy, it's fully furnished with furniture so old-fashioned it's cool again, and the creepy stained glass window in the living room adds atmosphere to the place. Plus there are no neighbours, just the landlord (Scott Gremillion), so it's really everything a young student could dream of. The one thing that's weird is a hole in the wall of Kim's room that just refuses to be covered up - but when Izzy reaches in, she pulls out a cool vintage necklace she then wears on a regular basis, so not too bad a deal. Thing is, soon spooky things happen in the apartment, and in the building as a whole, things that freak out Kim while Izzy seems to be utterly unaware of them. Kim and a friend from college (and soon-to-be boyfriend), Ian (Eric Wiegand), start investigating, and it's not long before they uncover the dark history of the place, and how the stained glass window might actually have to do with a curse - a curse Izzy seems to already be under as it has to do with her necklace. But knowing this and doing something about it are two very different things since the curse seems to have already taken a course of its own ...

 

A very cool piece of slowburn haunted house type horror that really has all the mystery and all the scares in all the right places and that focuses on its genuine creepiness (also helped by its really cool central location) to keep the audience at the edge of their seats. And the very fact that it doesn't try too hard to explain things away but favours atmosheric filmmaking instead only adds to the film's welcome feel of unease, which is of course also helped by a very solid small ensemble cast, making this a very fine piece of genre cinema.
