Lockout [Blu-ray] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Guy Pearce
Lockout [Blu-ray] Blu-ray ~ Guy Pearce
3.0 out of 5 stars Lockout, 2 Sep 2014
Lockout is a guilty pleasure of a movie. One that can be enjoyed by switching your brain to auto pilot and going along for the ride. There isn't much going on here but it is at least entertaining.

Ti West is a master of atmosphere. He has a canny ability to make his settings feel authentic and real. He acheived this with House of The Devil but surpassed that with The Innkeepers.

This is a well thought out. slow burning, creepy little tale of a soon to be closed hotel and its ghostly resident. Two front desk workers believe the hotel to be haunted and set about trying to find evidence of this. Of course things start to get a little creepy as they delve deeper into the history of the hotel. Throw in a couple of obscure and slightly random characters and you have here a fairly effective horror film.

The film takes its time to build atmosphere and character. The two… Read more
