Critic Reviews for Walled In
It throws in nightmares, hallucinations, red herrings and other sinister developments that seem to leapfrog one another more than they actually add up to something.
Audience Reviews for Walled In
The only scary parts was when Sam Walczak (Mischa Barton) got lost in dark on 8th floor and hearing voices. But other than that, this wasn't that much scary. The starting was great enough to make you want to watch the rest. I don't know whether it's me that thinks Mischa's acting was so-so in this movie. The story was okay. Not a waste of time but not that great either.More
Based on a bestselling French novel apparently. I have to say I was disappointed with this. It sounded like a great setting for a horror film with a good back story. However it just slowly plods on to the conclusion, some of the dialogue was pretty bad I have to add. Not sure how Mischa Barton got talked into this.More
I really like the concept of this film. The art direction is stunning and the cinematogrphy is great. Its biggest flaw is that it isn't scary. Its dialogue is pretty terrible and the plot uses many cheap twist tricks that any audience member will see coming. Overall, not bad but just not good enough to warrant a whole-hearted recommendation.More
