What have i just watched?

I'll give this a 0 Out of 10. OK, so he "saves" a rich business man from a brutal mugging and is given an apparently large cash reward while telling his sob story of being paid off a few months ago and this is the only reason he's accepting the cash. He's then offered a good paying easy job and all he has to do is go to the address written on a banknote at 8pm that night and the job is his. He promptly arrives( it's his girlfriends Birthday and it seems he's not seen her all day) while on the phone to his Girl and telling her how sorry he is he can't be at her party. Upon entry to the building he's met by a Security Guard and handed a Uniform and instructions as to the job description which seems pretty simple - sit on that chair and watch that door. Make sure it doesn't open. Some time in and a car pulls up followed by a knock at the door which he promptly answers to be met by two burly Security Guards with a delivery. After confirming with his boss over the phone that it's OK to let them in, he's given instruction on how to open the "Door" - let them in, close the door behind them to allow an inner door to be opened. If they don't knock three times within a minute, never open the door again. 58 seconds later the three knocks come and out comes two Security Guards, bloodies, battered and bruised with their Uniforms in need of repair. Freaking out as many would, he's back on the phone to the boss insisting he can't continue but is assured cover will be arranged for him but it may take a bit of time. FIVE minutes later, he receives a call on his mobile from his Girlfriend, guess what? She's outside with a load of their friends ready to bring the party to him. You may think this would be a good time to tell her that he'll be leaving soon(ish) as cover is being arranged so he'll be able to join them at the party shortly. Our hero has other ideas though. he lets them inside!! Not only that but it appears the first actions of one of our unexpected guests is to approach the door and try to open it, does our hero tell her not to? No, that would be too sensible on your first night of a new job which pays $500 a night. Soon after a couple of them go outside and while making out hear a voice coming from a vent in the building, this leads to everyone leaving the building to listen for this voice which, surprise surprise doesn't materialise. It's at this point they realise one of the friends isn't with them outside, so she must be inside... Low and behold, she's vanished and oh no, so has the key for the door. How long has she been in there? Oh, can't be more than 2 or 3 minutes( remember the instruction from the boss?? ONE minute and NEVER open the door again!) This doesn't matter, we'll ALL go inside, so they duly unlock the door ( even though it had just been unlocked and no one had locked it again) and file inside. they split up into teams and our hero who has been told (but seems to have amnesia) about the ONE minute rule decides they can search the warehouse for TEN minutes before returning to the exit and getting on with their lives. Do they call out the name of our missing friend? No!!, they decide it would be much more fun to wander round slowly with torches chatting about the weather, taking in the sights and sounds of the warehouse. Even when strange events occur, they don't seem overly hurried or panicked or stressed, they keep up their meander even stopping for minutes at a time to converse about the weird and strange things they're hearing and seeing in this eternal blackness. One girl who was brought up in an Army family and moved around so often she was the new kid in school 12 times is particularly annoying, even when finding a body of a Man, rather than getting the hell outta there, she decides to perform her own autopsy on him, coming to the conclusion he committed suicide, but what "down there" would make you commit suicide? she ponders calmly. So much is wrong with this Film and so little right that i honestly do wonder how modern Films get clearance to be made. the script was written by a Pre Schooler, clearly. The concept was designed by someone with an IQ of 80. The acting was unbelievably bad on so many levels. This is just a Turkey of a Film. Avoid at all costs. Take that key and melt it down. Never open the Door, never allow anyone to open the Door. There is no Door. In other words, don't ever watch this.

The Door

How do you make an ultra-low budget horror film? How about have a small bunch of people walking around in an abandoned building at night commenting on how they can hear someone - or something - whispering? Actually, although "The Door" has its faults, it is quite atmospheric. A young guy is down on his luck, too broke even to buy his girlfriend a birthday present, when he walks into a violent street robbery. Using his wits rather than his non-existent martial arts skills, he scares off the two hoods, and the grateful victim hands him a wad of money. Gee mister, I can't take that. He does though, and a job offer, start right away, 12 hours a night, but at $500 a shift, how can he refuse? All he has to do is don a uniform then sit and watch a door all night to ensure it doesn't open. An idiot could do that, right? Now you kinda know that if he doesn't open the door, this will be one boring movie, but what lies behind it, the entrance to Hell? No, that was "The Sentinel". So how does he come to open it? Girlfriend turns up with the gang having traced him through a new app on her phone. Hey, let us in, it's only 2am and we want you to join the party. He acquiesces, that is his big mistake. There is a bit more to this film than that, but not a lot more. So what happens? Watch it right through, and if you still don't know, you're in good company.

Engaging Setting - Bad Execution

I am sure this movie was made because the idea itself was a nice pitch. Pay someone 100,000k a year to guard a door in a building in the middle of nowhere. Someone in a studio though wow what a novel concept. They are right. The idea and the setting gives the director and scriptwriter a huge potential to pull from. The actors do a decent job. All we need now is for the director, script and the special effects to kick in, and give us that horror ride they promised. Yeah right! They spend most of the movie playing the 'did you this noise', 'no I didn't', 'let's go look', 'oh there isn't anything here', 'oh there is that creepy noise again', oh c'mon! There were some attempts at 'ghost like' scares, but lacking cgi, they used human actors with almost no makeup, and it was pretty much lacking in fear factor. Realizing this was the case, our script writer, director, decides to switch tack in Act 3, and gives us some answers and a nice twist, and then turns the movie into a 10 minute slasher flick. What a total let down! There is no pay-off for watching this film. The truth is that yes there are many bad movies out there and they are just bad with no potential for being better, but this, had potential for a cult classic, and they didn't deliver. If I was the producer, I'd just pull this film off the self, reshoot this film in the same location using a different modified script, get funding for some serious CGI, and learn from the Asian horror masters THEN re- release it.
