This movie is a proof you can still make cheap horror flick that is
actually quite interesting.
I would really not describe this movie as a "good", because the actors are kinda wooden and the script seems to be somewhat incoherent. But the story is actually pretty cool. It reminds me of classic like "Young Goodman Brown".
The atmosphere of the place, "the house that is going to be demolished" is creepy. Not because of its unique architecture or meaning (like in The Toolbox Murders), but rather because of the very strange people who still live in the house. Especially the young female tramp gave me creeps (she seems never to blink, that's really unsettling!) The story of the main character, the caretaker, is actually very good.
It's not modern gory horror, but rather the old psychological one, which is good. The ambitions of the authors of the movie were probably beyond their budget and resources so if you want your "bag of popcorn, blood and screams" you are going to be disappointed. But if you wish to see something slower yet chilling you will tolerate the weak spots here and there.
Douglas Elmore is an alcoholic writer and caretaker haunted by visions of his dead wife and pursued by supernatural forces bent on revenge for his past deeds. When tenants start turning up dead in the hallways and stairwells of his brownstone apartment building, Douglas suspects a strange but sexually alluring homeless prostitute named Karna who sleeps in his basement by day and prowls the empty city by night. But as the bodies pile up, Douglas is torn between his growing obsession with Karna and the threat of becoming a prime suspect in a murder investigation. Douglas must find the origin of the evil residing in the old Hagstone building before the secrets of his past return to destroy him.
