Plot Summary:
"After Kate's friend Monica invites her to help clean up an old opera house where her mother was killed in a play she starred in, she is skeptical. But when the doors suddenly get locked from the outside, she has good reason to be. She starts having visions of her dead mother getting killed down in the basement and everyone starts to see a mysterious clown. When people start dying they decide that they have to get out quick. When the clock hits twelve, someone wants her to be in the final scene with them."

This Canadian horror film tried to bring back the 's approach at the peak of the 's post-modernism horror trend, but surprisingly did it quite well.

High School student Kate has recently discovered that she was adopted after her mother, an up and coming opera singer, was murdered by her leading man. Since then she has been having nightmares.

Urged by her best friend Monica as a way of overcoming her fears, Kate decides to help out the drama department with a project that sees them cleaning out the old theatre where her mother was killed. However, the theatre appears to be haunted as all manner of things begin to go bump in the night. It soon turns out that the kids are not alone.

The location is what ultimately makes this film the success that it is, with endless creepy corridors and dark spaces creating all kinds of possibilities.

The cast are very good for an independent film with Christopher Plummer, Margot Kidder, Tatyana Ali, James Duval and 'Sweet Valley High's' Ryan Bittle.

The killer clown is right up there with the best of them (but is no way near as scary as Pennywise from'IT') providing plenty gory deaths and fake scares to entertain viewers.

If you overlook the expected goofyness such as an 's style cleaning montage you will find this quite enjoyable.

OVERALL SUMMARY
A very good attempt at re-creating 's horror, this film is a nicely shot well acted creepy little movie.
