In the opening scene, Alice (Eaoifa Forward) hurriedly covers her naked body with a towel when her crotchety father (Stuart Nurse) barges in to question her about the road trip she's planned with friends. His comfortable nature around his adult daughter's nudity, and the silent anguish on her face, confirm that, yet again, a horror heroine is recovering from sexual trauma.
Alice joins her friend Lizzy (Rachel Warren) and Lizzy's boyfriend Carl (Dan Paton) to drive up to a secluded oceanside resort for a party. When the elevator goes out, the trio is stuck on one of the top floors with no way down. As hours become days and then weeks, they begin turning on one another when it seems a malevolent spirit might be dooming them by infesting their food with maggots and cutting off their water source. Watching the women get brutally raped isn't enjoyable for a horror fan. Perhaps Cooper is working in a separate genre altogether, one that diminishes the art and magic of horror.
