Reviews

Five teenage friends including rookie pilot Sara (Jessica Lowndes of 90210) rent a small plane for a weekend getaway. But shortly into the flight, something suddenly goes wrong. The instruments begin to malfunction. The plane won't stop climbing. A storm is closing in and fuel is running out. Now for everyone on board, the true horror has just begun: A mysterious force wants them all to die... and only one of them has the power to stop it. Julianna Guill (Friday The 13th), Ryan Donowho (Bandslam, The O.C.), Landon Liboiron (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and Jake Weary (As The World Turns) co-star in this white-knuckle shocker directed by award-winning graphic novelist Kaare Andrews (Spider-man: Reign) that takes the supernatural to terrifying new heights.

Format: DVD
Five young adults charter an airplane for a getaway weekend. Sara pilots the plane which includes one other woman and three boys with testosterone problems who vie for her attention by putting each other down. The movie consists of a lot of blue hue scenes and facial close-ups. The "monster" in the movie was apparently created by the Pastafarians who wanted to introduce their god, the "Flying Spaghetti Monster." The characters were bad and unlikable. Most of the movie consists of bickering among the people in the airplane. While the five of them are in the plane, they ascend into storm clouds and are unable to escape the clouds which are the domain of the multi-tentacle monster you see on the cover. I thought the ending of the movie made the movie Twilight Zone-like, however the poor execution of the plot leading up to it, the inability to use the twist cleverly in the story, and the otherwise lousy scenes made the movie a stinker. It would have made a good 30 minute Creep Show episode. If facial close-ups of Jessica Lowndes is what turns you on, then by all means get this movie. (Worse than "Frozen"!) The movie is rated R for language (rare f-bomb) and a "sexual gesture." That sexual gesture is one of the males pretending to be self-stroking a long shaft, which makes a statement about this movie.

As one of other reviewers cleverly noticed, this little film could be easily mistaken for a slightly overextended episode of "Outer Limits". Five young people board a little plane to go on holidays. The girl who pilots, Sara (Jessica Lowndes), just got her licence and therefore she is quite happy that it will be a short flight and the weather is expected to be very good. But soon after the take off troubles begin, with the plane getting out of control and flying very high, into an unexpected stormy weather. And then REAL problems begin...

The story seems really like one of those described in "Outer Limits" series and even if at one moment things begin to look a little bit silly, ultimately everything is very cleverly explained and the solution is not stupid at all. There are some really scary moments and the dark storm cloud in which most of action takes place gives to this film a unique (and quite opressive) atmosphere. Last but not least, Jessica Lowndes is a very attractive young lady and she plays quite well.

The bad thing are the dialogs - they are really really poor. Other than Sara the "heroes" are rather pathetic and they act mostly stupidly. There is not much humor and many developments (not all) are quite predictable. And this film is definitely too long - cutting it down to 60 minutes would be a good thing.

All in all to my personal taste this is a little horror/SF film, to which I would rather give 2,5 stars if it was possible, as it is not very good. A thing to see once - and I would rent it rather than buy, as it may be hard to sell later.

The title of my review are my suggestions for alternate titles of this ridiculous film. I'll all for a bit of silly horror but this film thinks it's the real deal. Jessica Lowndes, her of orange face and white hands, is given "dialogue" copy and pasted from a Dummies Guide to Flying. Motivations are beyond ridiculous and the glorious cover art is the only good thing about it. Worth seeing to laugh at but not a keeper. Should have been like CREEPSHOW ended up as a crapshow.

I purchased this on a whim after seeing the trailer, and being mildly interested. I expecting something very low budget, and I was not disappointed. It's not all bad now. Anyone familiar with the work of H.P Lovecraft will know what to expect with this movie - the god-father of horror and sci-fi certainly had a morbid fascination for many-tentacled beasties, and the film utilises an interesting plot device which could have worked REALLY well with a slightly more talented writer at the helm.. well whatever you call the thing used to steer a plane.

Don't expect any serious character development, or in fact, any kind of a plot really. It's a serious case of "switch off brain" and just enjoy the movie for what it is - a loud, cheesy sci-fi, by the numbers teen horror fest with some interesting twists and turns.

Format: Blu-ray
Altitude opens with a good creepy atmosphere, and builds it steadily, as just-qualified pilot Sara flies her friends on a jaunt against the wishes of her protective dad, and trouble hits when a fault results in them climbing too high into a mysterious storm.
Jessica Lowndes is good as Sara, Jake Weary is note perfect as jilted jock Sal, and Landon Liboiron is fascinating as Sara's mysteriously oddball boyfriend. Effort has been put into the script to make the characters feel like they have history with each other, and to write in some dramatic confrontations.
The storm effects and the feeling of claustrophobia and hopelessness have been managed quite well too. However the film feels like it never quite achieves the heights (sorry) it's reaching for. The mysterious monster is well realised and looks good, but never properly terrifying, its attacks feel somewhat predictable, and tension is missing from their attempts to escape it. The film never feels like it has the necessary peaks and troughs of panic and calm that make great horror moments work.
Lots has been done to raise tension (including several sequences that I'm reasonably sure would have crashed the plane in real life) but they never really surprise.
The climbing malfunction has also been shown incorrectly I believe, and if I remember the views in the film correctly, what the director shows is actually a fault that would've had the plane rolling up onto its back again and again, or stalling while trying to do so. It's a little thing, but when you base your whole plot on it, getting it wrong weakens the rest.
The reasons behind Altitude's mystery are obvious from very shortly into the film and faintly ludicrous (surely something similar would've happened before...? You'll get what I mean when you see it) and the ending feels contrived and overly convenient. I was left vaguely satisfied, but faintly disappointed at the same time.
