Bad Building (2015)

Honestly, you get pretty much what you’d expect from a film that actually let itself be called Bad Building. The premise is that a group of down on their luck reality TV filmmakers breaks into the Desmond Building, which has a long and sordid history of violence and supernatural events, in an attempt to restart their careers.

This was never going to be a great film, but it had the potential to be a decent B picture. Sadly, Bad Building falls short in that regard as well. The actors clearly didn’t invest in their characters, none of whom are actually interesting enough to care about, and the plot rushes too quickly into the supernatural. The acting is flat, directionless, and the story is trying to include so many horror tropes that it forgot to invest in originality. The soundtrack erases any attempt at subtlety in acting or effects, and the characters don’t give the audience much to invest in. Bad Building is a B movie without the charm that makes those films fun to watch. It doesn’t have a sense of humor and didn’t invest in much logic, either. Furthermore, it displays a remarkable ignorance about how TV shows are actually made.

I didn’t even enjoy making fun of this one. It’s boring. Skip it.
