Movie Info

At the Millennium Building in NYC, the elevators have a problem... they just can't stop killing people! Pregnant women, skater dudes -- they're all on the menu for these possessed motorized beasts. As elevator repairman Mark Newman (James Marshal) delves deeper into the mystery, everyone from his boss to the building manager stand in his way. His only help comes from Jennifer Naomi Watts, a nosy reporter that smells a cover-up when she sees it. As the "accidents" pile up, the President and FBI get involved as the heroic couple come face to face with technology gone horribly, horribly wrong. Down is a direct remake (shot for shot at times) of director Dick Maas' early 80's cult flick The Lift.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.

    A very good horror flick with an interesting plot.

    It's an absolute disaster of a film, I mean an elevator that KILLS people . . . BUT I'd still tell you to see it with a large group of people to mock it. It definitely falls into the "so bad its hilarious" category. The fact that Dan Hedaya's first line of the film is "I hate elevators" is fucking gold. But it is still a shit movie.

    Really bad. Really, really bad. Almost as bad as Naomi Watt's Noo Yawk accent. This movie will give YOU the shaft.
