She Thought She Was Living Alone
Great cast, mediocre movie. This phrase would describe "The Resident", a nice but incomplete effort of Finn Antti Jokinen, a type frequently involved with filming video clips and less with films. I guess that is why the film is limping noticeably but not catastrophically in directing and screenplay. Note that this is for Hammer Films production in its new ' refreshed ' period.
The Juliet is a doctor who works in emergencies in Brooklyn. Recently, her relationship with her beloved accepted blow because the main "xenoapaytwse". The doctor is looking for a new home in a reconstruction effort and eventually finds a super offer and a very welcoming landlord. The new apartment is not so safe. Not a problem not the lock, simply the landlord who lives with his sick grandfather proves psychopath watching the Juliet in her personal moments as well as invading from various secret spots in her apartment. The shock will be large when Juliet discovers the reality behind the friendly owner's profile, and in particular the perverted appetites.
It was the first role of Christopher Lee in the Hammer film from 1976. It should be noted that the film in the same year became a book written by Francis Cottam, issued by Arrow Publishing in collaboration with the Hammer and Random House.
I think if the same scenario pragmatwnotan of asimoys film actors would be noticeably worse. "The Resident" survives mainly thanks to excellent performances, especially the twin fire Hilary Swank – Jeffrey Dean Morgan and bear the largest burden. The great Christopher Lee simply plays a completely regional role with almost nonexistent participation in burning turn of things. Slightly more important participation and Lee's Pace but don't imagine anything terrible. The film delivers some scary moments with intense suspense and dramatic evolution. In the face of landlord develops profile of a lonely man who katatrwgetai from the canker of loneliness desperately seeking a constant companion of the other sex. Only that in our case the situation reaches a psychopathological situations that deviate from the normal range resulting in total paranoia and in brazen voyeurism. Movements and "kataskopeyseis" through the walls remind us vaguely of climate "People Under The Stairs" the Craven but in very different and moderately frames.
Many perhaps believe downside predictability of the film led inexorably to a well-defined path devoid of surprises. Personally I don't xenise so this as unrealistic and specific scenario excesses. The ease instance of invasion into the landlord's doctor by one point and then becomes non-persuasive. Also sometime the filmmakers horror/thriller should understand that the excessive strength of the "bad" in the powerful blows of varying nature is at the expense of their designed. Little realistic guys.
- The scene that the landlord is hidden beneath the bed of Juliet and tries to satisfy his sexual desires.
- The shocking scene that the owner of Juliet in bathtub reclines to ' find '.
- The sequences of the game of cat and mouse between the leading twin containing inter alia and shots by nail gun. If it was a bit more plausible, we liked the most.

Some particularly frightening and exciting scenes, good performances from a remarkable ensemble cast.
Psiloaneyri Director, predictable script without surprises, underconsumption of Christopher Lee.
