Trying to lend visual style to this kind of material is a bit like performing surgery on a mangled corpse: the effort merely further mutilates an already dead body.

Audience Reviews for The Attic


A very interesting story\plot, but very slow-paced with some bad acting.

Super Reviewer


An uneventful, unscary haunted house film, The Attic starts off well for the first few minutes but then quickly devolves into a snooze-fest.

I could smell that ending from a mile away. First of all, all the characters make sure you know Emma is crazy, so the ending shouldn't be a suprise. Unfortunately, I don't think the filmmakers got the memo which said, the ending should ALWAYS be a suprise. Second, what was with the acting? It was horrible all around and they're all seasoned actors. Lastly, why was there no suspense? There weren't any cheap thrills either, which could have been the films saving grace.
