      Steve D Never even approaches intense. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Audience Member You'd think that Michael Moriarty would have had enough of window washers falling off of high rises, but he's back — well, he's playing a security expert instead of a thief, this time Dennis Randall — and he's trying to figure out why people keep dying inside a possessed high rise. The mystery that I will solve for you is that director Ken Barnett is really two people. Original director Ken Wiederhorn (Shock Waves) was replaced by Freddie Francis. Yes, the Amicus director, making his last movie. He wasn't the only replacement. Moriarty replaced Roger Daltrey and Jenny Agutter (An American Werewolf In London) replaced Lucy Guttridge. Released in the U.S. as The Curse V and as Demons 7: The Inferno in Japan, this movie starts with some great deaths — and Agutter in some of the most ridiculously unrevealing lingerie ever seen in a movie — and becomes a haunted high rise movie that can't compete with Demons 2 or Poltergeist 3. It does have Kevin McCarthy playing a psychic trying to investigate what's happening as well as a finale that has Agutter's hair and wardrobe looking different in nearly every scene. This was a Sandy Howard production, just like Blue Monkey, so it definitely was on the shelf of your video store. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review kevin c When mysterious deaths begin to occur at a high rise office building things begin to point to a supernatural presence that is intent on taking out the buildings architect. Michael Moriarty and Jenny Agutter star in this. Started out pretty strong but the level of interest wanes midway. Certainly watchable but not by too much. Fun for what it is. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I only watched this out of boredom but it was horrible. Hilariously horrible. A good movie for horror laughs and giggles at the corniness. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Incredibly boring, with a numbingly bland and uninvolved performance by Michael Moriarty. Jenny Agutter seems totally uninterested in the whole affair. Anything frightening about this "horror" movie? Yes. That it got made. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Good, not great. I was mostly entertained Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
