Movie Info

An engineering graduate supervising the demolition of a mysterious building unearths some unsettling secrets about the pristine building and its previous inhabitants in this dark psychological thriller starring Mischa Barton. Adapted from Serge Brussolo's graphic novel of the same name, Walled In follows fledgling engineer Sam Walczak (Barton) as she ventures deep into the countryside, where the monolithic Malestrazza Building is being prepared for demolition. Constructed by an obsessed architect, the Malestrazza Building has a chilling history. Many of the previous inhabitants were entombed alive in the massive structure, and the deeper Sam digs into the life details of the eccentric architect who designed it, the more convinced she becomes that she will be the final victim in its malevolent legacy. Perhaps by confronting her own sordid past, Sam can escape the curse and somehow find a way to start life anew.

    A very awesome horror flick with good scares and blood throughout. Also a very good story.

    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.

    In the opening sequence we witness a small child trapped between four walls, screaming her lungs out whilst cement slowly fills up her concrete grave. Fast forward 15 years later to Sam Walczak (Mischa Barton) who is a freshly graduated engineer and the heiress of her family's demolition company. Her father offers her the opportunity to be in charge of her very own project: organizing and supervising the demolition of a remote and sinister apartment building, originally designed by the notoriously eccentric architect Joseph Malestrazza. (Pascal Greggory) Upon arriving there she finds that the massive concrete crypt is not entirely empty. Caretaker Mary (Deborah Kara Unger), her teenage son Jimmy (Cameron Bright) and two others are still living there although they've received eviction notices. Mary lodges Sam in apartment 208 that is furnished since the former dwellers have never collected the furniture. Sam is haunted during the nights by ghostly noises, halls that are lined with secrets and upon investigation comes to the horrifying realization that the location may very well be haunted by the past inhabitants who were entombed within its walls. (The building itself is riddled with hidden passageways, labyrinths, doorways that lead to bricks and mortar, and has windows you definitely don't want to open.) Based on the best-selling French novel Les Emmurés by Serge Brussolo, the movie starts off really great but then gets absurd, disjointed, bland and predictable plodding along to an ending that is so incredibly dumb you have to see it to believe it.

    Think Micha Barton couldn?t act (or at least was really boring while watching the O.C. this is just as bad. Boring, (I?d rather watch Phone booth again or even worse.. Alone in the Dark) VERY PREdictable & Obviously in no way original thought to this. Not really suspenseful, I basically knew every ?trick? that was going to happen next. The script stunk not even worth a rental (let alone your time) F
