You May Want to Take the Stairs…
When the express elevators in New York City’s 102-story Millennium Building
start to malfunction, elevator mechanics Mark (James Marshall of TWIN PEAKS) and
Jeff (Eric Thal of THE PUPPET MASTERS) are sent to find the cause. After a
series of gruesome and deadly “accidents” occur, Mark joins forces with spunky
reporter Jennifer (Naomi Watts of THE RING), who’s on the hunt for a juicy
story. As the death toll rises and the building is sealed off amid claims of
terrorism, Mark and Jennifer attempt to unravel the horrifying secret behind the
mysterious behavior of the bloodthirsty lift before it takes them – and the
entire city – DOWN!
Michael Ironside (SCANNERS), Edward Herrmann (THE LOST BOYS), Dan Hedaya
(COMMANDO), and Ron Perlman (HELLBOY) co-star in this big-budget remake of THE
LIFT helmed by original Writer/Director Dick Maas (AMSTERDAMNED). Previously
released on home video in a cropped full-frame transfer as THE SHAFT, Blue
Underground is now proud to present DOWN in a brand-new widescreen 2K
restoration from the original negative, approved by Dick Maas!
