Movie Review: Next Floor

Next Floor

Movie Review by Siobahn Harris

WTF did I just watch? And why on earth did I like it so much? Next Floor is an incredibly weird horror short that I will have to break down a bit to understand.

A group of sharp dressed folks gathered around a table, quickly shovel food in their mouths. The question of what they’re eating is one that comes to mind, as some of it looks normal and some looks just wrong. Not to mention, the white powder they are covered in. Thankfully, the white powder is soon explained, but then just raises more questions.

The copious amounts of food these people are being served is just disgusting. There seems to be one guest who is not as enamored with the food as everyone else is. But she doesn’t get up, she doesn’t say anything, she just takes it.

The only thing I can think is that this movie is almost a way of showing the world how they stuff themselves with ridiculous amounts of food until they fall into an early grave. Here we can see the real danger of going to the Next Floor, but it doesn’t stop them from happily eating. It shows how the health of the world is falling to crap but that doesn’t stop people from stuffing themselves on unnecessary amounts of food.

Or maybe it is shows how people spend their money on an abundance of things they don’t need. No matter how “full” they get, they still throw their money away. It shows how money, that could be used on something more important is often used on overpriced unneeded items so that those who have it can feel more important.

Who knows! Either way, it is a weird, creepy, silent-ish short that will leave you scratching your head.

True Fear?

Not really. I was just confused and stayed locked on the screen so I didn’t miss anything. However, while Next Floor missed the mark on True Fear, it is an interesting watch! I really did enjoy it for some reason.

One thought on “Movie Review: Next Floor

  1. I had the fun and honor to have a private showing of this short as a guest of Ubiquitous Horror’s Siobahn! Thank you very much!! 😁 It is very much a head scratcher of a movie. There are a LOT of Whys that are not answered. I loved the servants, who kept trying to keep up, especially when they were on the stairs and you could hear these little murmuring voices, so cute. People at the table, as well as their food options were gross in their own separate ways. With the exception of the one guest that seemed only through eye and facial expression to give you the impression that she was there almost against her will. It was not a bad movie, it was filmed beautifully but it is definitely a WTF movie. If you are someone that likes symbolism and a puzzle this short is perfect for you.
