Horror Films set in the Workplace

Maybe the very words workplace induce a shiver. But we think we’ve put together a spine tingling list of commercial property places that would be truly horrific to work in.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) Directed by Joe Dante

This comedy horror is a sequel to Gremlins with its two main stars Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates returning to their roles. This time the Gremlins begin to spawn in an office block and it’s up to our heroes to stop them escaping to wreak havoc in the city.

 The Shining (1980). Directed by Stanley Kubrick.  

One of the greatest horror films of all time takes place in a remote hotel closed for the winter where Jack Nicholson’s character is driven insane by the building’s horrific past. 

Dawn of the Dead (1978). Directed by George A. Romero

The stars of this film have to lock themselves inside a shopping mall to save themselves from a hoard of zombies as society crumbles. (sounds like a typical Next sale to me).  


 The Blair Witch Project. (1999)  Directed and Edited by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez

Designed as if it is a documentary, with the use of hand held camera footage,  this film follows three student filmmakers who disappear in the Black Hills, Burkittsville, Maryland while investigating the legend of the Blair Witch. 


Saw Franchise (2003 to 2017). Various directors. These films have a central figure called Jigsaw who likes to set deadly games for his captured victims which mostly consist of torturing them in industrial spaces. Like a lot of bosses then!
