review by
Mike Haberfelner

Laura (Laura Dooling) hears scratching from her housemate Elizabeth's room, goes to investigate, and finds her dead, a horrbile look on her face. Police come to investigate but come to the conclusion she has died of natural causes. So despite some discrepancies, this should be an open and shut case (if you can even call it that), and it's more out of pity (and maybe attraction) that one of the detectives, Miller (Frank Wihbey) gives Laura his card - much to the dismay of his partner Richards (Adrienne King), who warns him against getting to personally involved with "work". But really, Laura does need all the support she can get, because since she's still new to the city, she has no friends to spend the night at and can't afford a hotel, and thus has to stay at the apartment where Elizabeth has died, and the thought of that's already creepy enough - so creepy that she doesn't only call detective Miller but also her ex-boyfriend Christian (Bryan Manley Davis), who both do their best to calm her remotely. But then Elizabeth's boyfriend Derrick (Michael Schantz) stops by and acts all creepy, Laura finds some sinister symbols painted right under Elizabeth's bed, the power cuts out, and Laura has to realize she's not alone in the apartment, and whoever's there might not be quite human ...


A very nice piece of horror that really proves that showing less can be more, as there's little on screen that's actually spooky (apart from some out-of-focus shapes that might be demons), nothing at all is explained away (and doesn't need to be), the movie's underlying mythology is only hinted at, and even Elizabeth's horrible dead features are not even shown. And yet, thanks to atmospheric filmmaking that creates a feel of genuine unease, the audience still gets what Laura must be going through (also thanks to a splendid central performance by Laura Dooling of course). And a very well-structured plot does its part to bring across the film's central horror just fine, making this into a pretty cool genre movie.
