(horror movie)NIGHTWORLD-Great idea, but not so great realization

Haven´t seen any good modern newer horror for a while and I thought this one was okay, judging by the story description, so I decided to watch and see what was it all about. It also has one of my all time favorite horror actors Robert Englund starring in it, so the choice was obvious.


The first third of the movie was okay with retired LAPD cop Brett Anderson moving to Sofia, Bulgaria, after the tragic passing of his wife. He decided to take over the job of night watchmen in a peculiar old building in the Bulgarian capitol. As it always happens, strange and bizarre incidents start to happen there and Brett is drawn in an ancient fight between good and evil, our world and the next…Boy, sounds better than it really is. The second and third movie become pretty lame and boring. No gore scenes, no real scares and no atmosphere. When Robert Englund walks to the screen, he kinda saves the situation a bit with his charisma, but not even he can save plainly bad script. The idea used in this movie was already used in legendary The Sentinel and many similar movies afterwards, but it was realized very poorly with ending being so hasty and so somehow unbelievable to the average horror movie viewer that it was just bad to watch it. It is plain all time during the movie that the budget was very low. But, despite the budget, you can make excellent horror movie with a great script. This one was not the case.
