It's a great idea and the composition is fine. I just feel the lighting and time of day needs to be changed. Taken at night with just a couple of spotlights will change the tone & mood completely. This lighting is more suitable for a bride and groom than a sinister portrait. Of course it depends on what mood/time of day you are trying to convey.

I hope this helps,

This is great. To me it's all a bit too bright though - if you brought down the exposure in RAW and/or converted to b&w and really pushed the contrast so that you have black shadows and bright (even clipped) highlights I think the menace would be enhanced and the textures in the stairs and walls would be brought out. The sunlight makes it look too 'nice' for me as it stands. You have a wonderful portfolio, and you're really getting the best out of this location - congratulations.
