This is a compilation of all feature films that have played at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX from 2005 through…
A man emerges with his autistic daughter and three others from a hospital elevator to find themselves trapped in the building with devilish monsters.
For those lucky enough not to have seen them already, Lordi are a theatrical Finnish heavy metal band who bizarrely won the bland multicultural pop parade, Eurovision. Their monstrous on-stage personas is a natural fit for a low budget horror film so it was only a matter of time a producer would cash in on their fleeting popularity. Dark Floors is the result of this cynical and cheap collaboration. Not only do the band star in the film but they even came up with the original concept (it seems music and applying make-up are their only real talents).
Dark Floors is a surprisingly po-faced horror film about a group of strangers trapped in a hospital and terrorised by…
Absolutely dire! I should have just turned it off but kept hoping there'd at least be some sort of explanation at the end.......needless to say there wasn't although I'm pretty sure saving the world had something too do with a blue crayon.
The movie had so much potential. The concept was interesting and if there was maybe a bit more explanation, it could have easily gotten at least a 3 and half stars.
Shit horror starring Finland's premier GWAR impersonators, Lordi! People are trapped in a spooky hospital and terrorised by rubber suited Eurovision winners. Despite the rubbish monsters it's relatively decent and reminiscent of a Stephen King story, e.g. The Langoliers.
HARD ROCK HALLELUJAH!
WTF? What was that all about?
Suddenly they are in abandoned part of the hospital, or some kind of time loop or are they actually in the mind of the autistic girl... We don't know. Nor do we care.
Whilst a father checks his autistic daughter out of hospital, they enter a lift with a small group of people which breaks down on route. When they manage to get out, the hospital is not as they left it.
This film stars campy Finnish horror rockers Lordi (winners of the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest), so I was not sure what to expect. The plot is nothing you haven't seen before - deserted hospital, dead bodies, monsters, etc. - and that is about as far as it goes. The acting, direction and effects are what you would expect from this kind of movie. Whilst pretty to watch, nothing really special happens. The monsters appear briefly, someone dies, and then the monsters…
Where death metal and horror come together to produce something truly awful.
A lot of great special FX, but no story. I did not like it, its just a 90 minute music video.
Apparently the most expensive movie ever made in Finland's history and starring 2007 Eurovision Song Contest winners Lordi as demons stalking an autistic girl and her Father in a hospital. There were shades of a good movie there but considering it was meant to be centered around Lordi, it should have been way more campy and fun. The movie looked great but very little effort was made in ensuring that the twists and turns in the story made sense and many questions raised were never answered. Good visuals and hilarious monsters do not make up for lazy storytelling.
