The 7th Dimension

Clunkily made, terribly acted and outright silly Brit horror pic.

It’s the end of the world as we know it in “The 7th Dimension,” but auds are hardly likely to feel fine about this clunkily made, terribly acted and outright silly Brit horror pic. A low-budget mash-up of “Pi” and “The Da Vinci Code” with stock madman-in-the-house high notes, helmer-co-writer Brad Watson’s follow-up to “Asylum Night” may attract hardcore sci-fi and conspiracy-theory fans on ancillary, but theatrical prospects look apocalyptic.

Coed Sarah (Kelly Adams) accompanies her best friend, Zoe (Lucy Evans), to the apartment of Zoe’s professor/lover, Malcolm (David Horton). Turns out Malcolm shares digs with wheelchair-bound, handicapable-of-murder geek Declan (Jonathan Rhodes), and his g.f., Kendra (Calita Rainford); the three of them are trying to hack into the Vatican’s computer system to unlock the code in the oldest known Torah scrolls, which apparently can predict the future. If such scrolls could really talk in our world, they would say, “Oy vey! This film will get stinking reviews and poor word of mouth!” Although the script, thesping and even score appall throughout, Watson’s editing is at least competent, while HD lensing has lurid charm. Pic’s original title was “Beacon 77.”
