Plot Edit

Sarah (Skye Bennett) is a diseased little girl whose father (Noah Huntley) is worried about her health. Concerned for her after a near-fatal accident with a hospital scanning device, the father decides to immediately remove his daughter from the institution. With his daughter and her freaky monster drawings in hand, he makes way for the nearest elevator along with a lawyer (William Hope), a security guard (Leon Herbert), a tramp (Ronald Pickup), and a nurse (Dominique McElligott). But the elevator brakes down, trapping all of them. Yet the incident is only the beginning of a descent into a nightmare. As the elevator doors open, the hospital appears mysteriously deserted. When mutilated bodies are found, creatures from a dark world start a frightening attack. It soon becomes clear that the survival of the group may rest solely on the little girl.

Cast Edit

Releases Edit

The film was released on Region 2 DVD in the UK by Metrodome Distribution on April 20th, 2009, priced at £12.99 RRP. [1] The release includes several extra features, listed as "Behind the Scenes of Dark Floors", "Cast & Crew Interviews", and "Dark Floors World Premiere featurette including Q&A with Lordi, the cast and crew and a live Lordi performance". The film is rated 15 by the BBFC for "strong bloody violence and horror".[2]

Even though the film was a box office disappointment in Finland, it rose to gold in the DVD charts.

Elsewhere it has largely been criticised for confusing plots and little explanation, but has sold reasonably well, with new DVD releases in separate countries still taking place.
