Walled In

The movie of choice tonight is Walled In, directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner and has Mischa Barton playing the main character (Sam Walczak). When I watched the trailer for this movie, I was super exicted about it and thought it would be a great horror movie but I'm sad to say it just didnt deliver its full potential.

The movie is about a young women (Sam Walczak) who has just recently graduated from engineering school and whos father gives her as a gift, her first solo demolition project of a mysterious building. Sam travels out to this building that was built by a wacky architect named Joseph Malestrazza to try and figure out the best way to bring down this awkward building. Sam soon finds out that the building as well as its' architect are quite out off the ordinary.Malestrazza believed that a building could be immortal if its walls were intombed with live people...sounds crazy huh?

The building itself is amazing and i feel the director could have done soooo much more with such a set,the movie is not completely bad but i just feel the house was such a wonderful maze the director could have played on so many emotions like fear,claustrophobia, darkness,confusion etc... another thing that i did not completely understand and was a lil mad about is why the writer had to steal the infamous Freddy Krueger (1,2 Freddy's coming for you) lullaby and try to modify it for the movie?! it didn't even make any sense or flow as good as the Freddy Krueger version so that part could've definitely used a lot more creativity.

All in all the movie was not that bad and definitely had its scary parts like this scene :but sadly like most horror movies the ending didnt do much for me and had me a little lost but maybe that's just me! so watch it and see what you think of it....

Rating: 6/10
