“The older I get, the harder I find it to buy into these supernatural style horror films. I just donu0026#39;t believe it basically, and so I sit there and donu0026#39;t feel any kind of fear or tension whatsoever throughout the movie. Robert Ebert once said however, itu0026#39;s not what the film is about, itu0026#39;s how it is about it. And looking at the film through that lens, it was pretty darn good.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI say that I donu0026#39;t find these types of movies scary, but I can confirm the woman sitting beside me in the theatre certainly did. She was sitting right forward in her chair, audibly gasping throughout the movie, covering her eyes and even gently rocking herself at one point. Itu0026#39;s a small sample size, but if she represented the general public then I would say this movie has the ability to deliver some tension.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI thought the setting for the movie was well done. Itu0026#39;s pretty hard to pull off an inner-city apartment building and make it feel isolated and like help is a long way away, but the film achieved just that. These people really do feel stuck where they are and escape is not an option.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThereu0026#39;s a trope creeping into horror movies more and more which is to make one of the lead characters a pregnant lady. The theory of course being that a pregnant lady is going to have the audience extremely worried about her fate. Ironically, I think it drags a lot of the tension out of the movie. There isnu0026#39;t a major studio in existence that would let something truly bad happen to a pregnant woman. Iu0026#39;m always very disappointed when I see a horror movie introduce a character this way.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThereu0026#39;s certainly plenty of gore. Apparently 6,500 litres of blood were used to make the film and when you see it you wonu0026#39;t be left wondering where it all went. For what this was I have to say I had a pretty good time with it. 8/10.”
