Painful to watch as it died

This movie started out OK. It seemed like it had promise that way it didn't really explain what was going on, but through actions and dialogue it gave the viewers the background story.

The three characters have no chemistry and they act stiff around one another. The character of the psychic, Holly, played by Laura Peterson, is clichè: dark, moody, etc.

Jed Brophy's character doesn't say much. Jeffery Thomas was pretty good, but, again, there was the problem of the interaction between the only three actors in the film. It was stilted and boring.

Back to Laura Peterson: the girl cannot act. In a role where terror and anxiety is necessary, she misses the mark completely. I've seen 5 year olds pull off terror better than her.

My family and I stopped watching the movie 3/4 of the way in because of a malfunction. We weren't upset. I noticed my 14 year old horror fanatic was fast asleep.

The scare factor was null, the suspense was just long waits while characters walk down the hall.

Good idea for a film, started with a promise, died a slow, boring death.

It was entertaining, but not anything different

I heard a lot about this movie, so was pretty excited to see it, plus the fact that it was filmed in NZ and I'm a New Zealander was an even bigger incentive to see it. I also saw that it was filmed using the new Rumble technology which seemed really cool, I wonder if it was the cinema I was in....cause i don't believe it worked, a shame really, but onward.

Dead room is based on an urban legend of a small farmhouse in Otago, New Zealand, where two science teachers in the 1970s visit the rural farmhouse to debunk claims the house is haunted. They reportedly flee because of some terrifying and unexplained events.

This movie was somewhat generic, not scary, I believe, nor was it suspenseful, I pretty much saw what was coming and what was going to happen. I suppose you could look at it like "good job New Zealand, little pat on the back there for you". Otherwise the acting was okay, not too bad, it was a bit touch and go in some parts, like when she falls on the floor and becomes possessed, you'll get what I mean if you see it, and some of the girls moments could have been like she was genuinely a lot more scared...considering she had the distinct advantage of actually seeing the spirit. The storyline was decent though and seemed genuinely thought out, and the use of technology was smart and the set was scary, so that was a good touch.

This movie was good in the fact that it built up to events, it let us feel for the characters, feel safe with them, and then feel fear with them at the same time. But its the ending that can't make me justify an amazing rating. To me, the ending fell a bit flat, everything happened so fast, the last ten minutes everything just went really bad and everyone started disappearing and then it just ended with a final scene of the evil spirit, I believe it would have been better if it was left to our imagination like in Blair Witch Project...but that's just my opinion.

Overall it was alright, it would be worth a watch if you want to see New Zealand's take on horror, and to see something that has a somewhat decent twist at the end, where the original bad guy is not as bad as he seems.

Better than the negative reviews suggest.

I don't quite understand some of the low reviews for this film, except perhaps that some people only appreciate fast paced, gore infused, CGI blockbusters. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. While the premise is not unique, the acting was very good, the dialogue well scripted, and the setting was excellent. Shooting a movie with only three primary actors is difficult, this movie pulled it off. While suspense builds slowly, it works well. With the onset of supernatural occurrences, the characters, for the most part, react like real people.

The ending was unexpected, and from my perspective, added an interesting twist I did not see coming.

All in all, I was not disappointed by this New Zealand addition to the horror genre. I rarely am when it comes to international horror. If you like a simple 'haunted house visited by paranormal investigators' film, I recommend this one.
