The Fifth Floor is a suspenseful horror movie from 1978 starring Bo Hopkins, Dianne Hull, and Patti D'Arbanville. Set in New York City, the film revolves around a young woman named Kelly (played by Hull) who moves into a new apartment building with her friend, Cathy (D'Arbanville). Initially, everything seems great about the new place. The building is beautiful and has all the amenities they need, but things quickly take a dark turn when Kelly starts experiencing strange phenomena. From hearing bizarre noises to seeing gruesome hallucinations, she starts to believe that she is losing her mind.

As she tries to figure out what's happening to her, she meets one of the other residents of the building, Greg (Hopkins). He explains to Kelly that the building has a dark history, and that a number of residents have gone missing or been killed in the past. Kelly finds it hard to believe but can't ignore the overwhelming evidence that something is very wrong in the building.

With the help of Greg, Kelly decides to investigate the history of the building and uncover the truth about what's happening to her. The closer she gets to the truth, the more dangerous the situation becomes, putting Kelly and those close to her in grave danger.
