Initially this dark film seems to have prospects with quite an original premise, but with a lacking pace and sometimes dull performances it recedes to a far less satisfying experience.
Sam, a woman in a family demolition business gets her first big job - to bring down a hotel / apartment building constructed in the middle of nowhere by an eccentric architect. The deadly secrets soon reveal themselves via the odd caretaker and her son (plus a few odd remaining residents). Many people were murdered in the building by being entombed in its concrete structure. Sam may be the next victim...
With a few eerie moments inside this bare and deserted building with a very bad vibe, this is not exactly a conventional haunted house tale, but unfolds to being something quite original.
No extra features.
