Synopsis:
As the lone moon rises over wild and uninhabited moors, a group of friends find themselves lost and desperate for shelter when they arrive at the door of an abandoned building, long rumored to hide a secret vault full of treasured artefacts. Hastening through the creaking doors, the group begin their wait for the darkest hours of the night to pass; but as the wind tears through the trees outside, the teenagers quickly realise they are not alone. When a gang of burglars suddenly arrive in search of the vault, unexplained noises, apparitions and disturbing whispers echo through the empty corridors.
The house is stirring and as the ghostly noises take a deadly, malevolent turn, the teenagers realise that they must escape both the spirits and the burglars or become victims before the night is over...

Spoilers follow ... - Unhallowed Ground review by NP

A British teen horror then. Instead of posturing braggarts and plenty of arrogance, we have coy-eyed girls and clean, well-spoken boys. And a bit of arrogance. The wistful adolescent gossip concerning broken relationships and broken hearts that fuels any shallow character development hardly endears the young characters – although the cast do what they can. It actually took me a couple of attempts to get past establishing scenes rammed with ‘as if’ and ‘whatever’.

Six cadets – three girls, tree boys and not a blemish between them – take part in a night-time training exercise on the same evening two hapless burglars decide to rob the archives. The school they are patrolling seems to have had a gruesome history and so it is no real surprise (to the audience at least) when modest but effecftive horrific occurrences occasionally crop up.

Of the burglars, Jazz is the downtrodden incompetent, with actor Ameet Chana injecting the same level of appealing ham-fisted qualities he did in his short-lived run in UK soap EastEnders. Will Thorpe is very good as his bad-boy co-conspirator Shane, and Rachel Petladwala makes a good impression as Meena Shah. In fact, the cast as a whole give good performances when their dialogue doesn’t revolve around teen-speak clichés.

As things go on, the pace improves but there is a distinct lack of tension and scares. Technically very competent but hardly edge-of-the-seat stuff, until the end, that is, when a few decent twists present themselves and the finale is nicely fitting thanks to unexpected parties. Not essential, but worth 93 minutes of your time.
