Walled In (2009)

After a long day breaking in the New Year at work, it was time to relax. What a better way to unwind than watching something that I never heard of until I saw it on Showtime, 2009s Walled In.

Plot / A young woman who recently graduated from engineering school travels to a remote location to supervise the demolition of a mysterious building. She soon discovers the horrifying secrets of the building and its past inhabitants, many of whom were victims of a vicious murderer who entombed his prey alive within its walls. Now she must turn the tables on the killer before she becomes his latest victim.

This is a far from perfect attempt that is definitely more psychological thriller/mystery than horror. There are some creepy moments, but those are definitely outnumbered by the illogical twists that were thrown into the mix. Because of the twists, the plot never seems to fully develop and that takes a lot away from the flick. The acting is choppy and some of the camera work is a bit discordant, yet, there are still a few moments that really work because of the atmosphere. While I would not run out and buy this one, it is worth watching if you catch it on Showtime or some other On Demand avenue.
