"You either believe... or you don't."
-Letti Gordon
Wessex Hotel Service Department Manager

The film's UNofficial reviews tend to be a lot more favorable than the official reviews. The official reviews do not give the movie enough credit. The writers for the "official" reviews obviously: 1) lack imagination, 2) forgot about the tremendous amount of censorship that had to be worked around in order to create the film, 3) forgot about the film's tiny budget and pressure induced deadline, and crutially, 4) were trying to compare this movie with ones containing million dollar special effects, space age everything and things that couldn't possibly have been achieved during the filming of "Nightmare on the 13th Floor". If the writers of the official reviews would have honestly had given the movie a true unbiased look, they might have seen that, for what it is, the movie is truly spectacular. Those who seem to love the movie the most, at least for the most part, will always be the fans.
