I'm hearing mixed things about this film, but will see it anyway, because the director's short films are terrific.

Check out this two minute wonder which is scary and a complete story, even in the short runtime:

Meakins has more good stuff on his Vimeo page. He also made a pilot that didn't get picked up starring Paul McGann called Fables of Forgotten Things.

Floor 9.5 seems a little too on the nose like middle management. Frightening indeed.

It's weird how clear it is that all of the settings and actors are UK, even as they attempt to use American accents and tweak signs and details enough to pretend it is happening in the US.

The director stages several solid to good scenes, befitting his background in shorts. But the script just isn't here and the main actors are not great.

Isaac seems to be working on a game called Ghoster, which is a project Meakins has shot test footage for and released on his Vimeo.
