I covered this movie last year. You're right about its flaws and I personally found it average. It does have its moments, but is undermined by a script that doesn't totally know what its doing. The hero is drawn to the elevator, his wife is threatening to walk out on him, and he doesn't do a thing. He doesn't say a thing to her. This aspect was poorly handled. That David Cronenberg-inspired revelation about the lift at the end was cool.
