review by
Mike Haberfelner

The year's 1953, and the Soviet Union has launched a biological attack on the USA - with some success it seems, but it's hard to tell for the inhabitants of a certain New York apartment building as it's barred off from the outside world, and neither do they get any information from the outside, nor are they even able to take a peek outside as their windows are all boarded up to keep out "the infection". Felix (David Labiosa) tries to be a just leader to them, but when he notices the building runs low on food, he volunteers to go out and look for provisions, not sure what the outside might bring and more than certain the town is overrun by commies. Control is passed on to caretaker Horen (Anthony Marciona), but when Felix fails to return, Horen goes looking for him and resolute Martha (Casey Kramer) takes over. Now Martha is a woman of strong princicples and not to be shaken by her beliefs - but the problem is, her beliefs aren't always grounded in fact. And thus, when Horen returns from the outside, she simply shoots him dead, claiming him to have shown signs of the infection, though objectively he didn't. This especially shocks the gang of children in the house, led by 16 year old Joanna (Nicole Tompkins) and they soon make up a plan to escape, especially after Martha throws up 8 year old Rhonda (Emmy Greene) on her own, just because she showed symptoms of the common cold. There's one problem though, Joanna is not quite stable - she's very intelligent, reasonable and rational mind you, she just has fits of self-harming and the occasional outbursts of violent rage ...


Darkness in Tenement 45 is a movie that's quite probably quite unlike anything you've ever seen, a piece of dystopian science fiction on an alternative timeline on the outside, it's actually a rather compelling psycho thriller and character study about the human condition as such - and thanks to clever and intelligent writing it just remains tense and suspenseful throughout, with an atmosphere-heavy directorial effort giving the film an extra layer of uniqueness, only topped off by a strong cast.

Totally recommended!
