Dark Floors – The Lordi Motion Picture

Dark Floor is a horror movie in the American slasher tradition.

The Finnish Eurovision Song Contest winner Lordi will perform the theme song and star in a new 4 million euro horror movie Dark Floors – The Lordi Motion Picture for Finnish producer Markus Selin of Solar Films.
“After Lordi’s win in Athens, Mr Lordi gave an interview where he suggested I contact him, which I did. He came up with this idea of a horror movie in the American slasher tradition, slightly Japanese style, which is set in a hospital,” explained Selin, who has for the last four years delivered the No 1 local top-grossers on the Finnish charts. The film, released in Finland on Friday, 8th February, is the first feature by Pete Riski, who has directed all the group’s videos.

Synopsis

Sarah is an autistic little girl whose father is worried about her health. Concerned for her, the father sees her removal from the hospital by force as the only option. An elevator breakdown prevents a smooth exit and leaves them trapped with others. Yet the incident is only the beginning of a descent into nightmare. As the doors open the hospital appears mysteriously deserted. When mutilated bodies are found, creatures from a dark world start a frightening attack. It soon becomes clear that the survival of the group may rest solely on the little girl.
