Just finished watching this. There are some pretty scary parts and a good story line. In my opinion, a more than decent movie.

A surprisingly good film
Horror Buff | Hickory, NC | 05/10/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'm surprised there hasn't been more interest in this film, considering it does a nice job in maintaining some suspense and has a few chills thrown in for good measure. The story is an intriguing one, involving an old apartment building being renovated for a college dorm. The building's history involves a sordid past that left restless spirits revisiting the scenes of their shared history. The few college kids (of course) left behind over break make the mistake of holding a seance, unleashing unforseen horror that they spend most of the movie trying to explain and escape. The story is an interesting one, the pace more than reasonable, and the mood is worthy of a late night ghost story with the lights out.

I don't want to overrate the film, but for a straight to DVD release, it is a worthy rental. There are only a few characters, and their development is virtually nonexistent, but that is not what the film is about. The real concern is the story of the haunting and the history of the building, and it is fairly well executed. You'll want to avoid injecting too much logic into it, or you'll ruin the fun. This is nothing more than a little ghost story to go along with the popcorn, and it is satisfying at that level. Don't expect too much blood or special effects, as the budget obviously doesn't allow for it. And the acting is less than stellar, but it never reaches the laughable stage that horror fans sometimes have to endure. But it is good fun, and at least you'll not be in a hurry to finish the film."
Better than expected
Dancing Ganesha | Bangalore, India | 09/24/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was surprised that a film that is obviously low-budget would not be so bad. The directing really made the difference; whoever was in charge of that helped to make a film that could have been really ridiculous, appear to be of better quality.

There are some good scares in this film that don't depend on much makeup artistry, special effects, or gore. I'd recommend this film to someone who thinks all low-budget horror films are stupid or "all the same." This one will prove them wrong."
