The Resident

In every city thousands of women live alone, Juliet is not one of those women.  After renting an apartment that seems too good to be true, Juliet finds out that she’s not alone.  Her seemingly nice landlord has become obsessed with her and is watching her every move.  There isn’t a safe room in the apartment, so she’ll have to fight to survive.

I always have my doubts about films that only have one or two victims.  Let’s face it, the main character, most likely, isn’t going to die, so you go in already knowing how it’s going to end.  At least when there’s five or six main characters there is some real danger for the characters, because they can’t all survive.

The trailer looks good, but not great.  It really reminds me of Vacancy.  It has all those unbelievable tunnels that you only see in the movies, probably because most real killers are just going to kill you and not play hide and seek first.  It really doesn’t even look scary, bear in mind I’m really not easily scared.  If you liked Vacancy you’ll probably like this as well.  It stars Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christopher Lee. 

One thing I do love about the film is that the name could have two meanings.  She’s the resident of the apartment but she’s also a doctor (one of the levels of qualifications of doctors in a resident). 

It’s in cinemas now if you want to check it out.  Let me know what you think by voting and leaving a comment below.
