Dark Floors

Finally managed to see the Lordi movie, Dark Floors. And I liked it lots. Any Silent Hill fan would, I think. Honestly, this movie would've almost been more convincing as a Silent Hill movie than the so-called Silent Hill movie. Anyways, great visuals, great atmosphere, and even a few surprising twists. Some of the actors could have been more natural, but they managed to do the job. It was a surprise seeing Philip Bretherton (Alistair in As Time Goes By) in the movie.

I like horror movies that are eerie and surreal. Atmosphere is always much more important than violence. And I like being left a little puzzled at the end, as well. Straightforward happy endings don't belong in horror movies. The eeriness should remain, well into the night at least.
