Down 2001

A series of strange faults and odd behaviour by the elevators in the Millennium Building begins to turn sinister when a group of pregnant women are subjected to intense heat which causes them to give birth. Amid increasing media interest, two repairmen from the Meteor Elevator Company Mark Newman (Marshall) and Jeffrey (Thal) - arrive to investigate but can find nothing wrong. Soon afterwards, however, a blind man and his guide dog are killed and a trespassing skater is swallowed up by the elevator, blown out onto the top floor and catapulted out of the window to his death. Clearly, something is awry and Mark begins to investigate, assisted and hindered by tabloid journalist Jennifer Evans (Watts). He begins to uncover a link between the elevator's behavior and the shadowy research department at Meteor Elevators headed by German scientist Steinberg (Ironside).
