The movie Down (a.k.a The Shaft) was a topic of discussion over on our Message Board last week so I thought I would share this piece of work with everyone here. I have not seen the movie myself but please give us a review if you have.
The Internet Movie Database reports the following as the plot:
When the express elevators in the Millennium Building, one of New York’s most famous landmarks, start to malfunction and behave in erratic ways, elevator mechanic Mark Newman is sent out to find the cause of the problems. His investigation meets unexpected resistance and not everybody seems to be happy with his involvement. After a gruesome and deadly incident, in which a blind man falls into the shaft and a security guard is decapitated, the police start an investigation. They are however not very successful. Mark is determined to find the cause. He is joined by a female reporter, Jennifer, who is looking for a juicy story. Together they try to unravel the secrets behind the mysterious behaviour of the elevator that seems to have a life of it’s own. When things get worse and death toll rises, The Government, fearing terrorists are involved, seal off the building. What at first looked like a routine job turns into a horrifying nightmare in which Mark has to face an enemy whose blood thirst is only met by it’s unpredictability. An enemy that is determined to fight off any intruder looking for the dark secret that lurks inside the belly of the building. An enemy that has to be feared. An enemy that has to be taken …….DOWN.
Click to watch the trailer at your own risk! I’m just not sure this is a curl up with a blanket and popcorn kind of movie. I’m thinking the DVD would be more like something you would use to help even out the short leg on the coffee table. But hey, I dont claim to be a movie critic, just a marketing guy. That reminds me…dont forget about the new safety products we have over at our online bookstore.
