Wow, what a piece of shit. When ever I see the name H.P. Lovecraft, I always come running without thinking twice. His short stories are also interested at least but this film adaption of the 1926 story was not one of my favorite. In fact it is completely unwatchable. The acting is absolutely terrible, the score sounds like a soft-core porn and even though the film is less than 80 minutes to drags major ass. The film was made in 2006 and was never realized to now but I understand why after watching this. There are also no special features included on this DVD, not that I would have watched them anyway. Warning: Stay away for this film!

Official Premise: Struggling screenwriter, Charlie Baxter sets out to write his long blocked “great American screenplay” when he suffers a heart attack and his mysterious upstairs neighbor Doctor Shockner comes to his rescue. The Doctor persuades Baxter to stay with him until he recovers fully, and introduces Baxter to a nightmarish world of insane experiments and murder. He knows something must be done to stop the evil that resides in the room at the top of the stairs.
