Blu-Ray Review: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Hilary Swank Take Up Lodging in ‘The Resident’

5 April 2011 7:55 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Resident” is one of those thrillers in which you’re never supposed to be quite sure what the hell is going on and the deceptive description on the back of the box makes it sound like it could be a ghost story (as does the involvement of horror icon Christopher Lee). From the beginning, you’ll be asking yourself, is there something supernatural involved or is this more like “Sleeping With the Enemy” or “Psycho”? The answers come quickly and not in a very satisfying way.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0

Considering the fact that the back of the box tries to sell “The Resident” as a supernatural thriller (“…an evil you can’t see…until it’s too late”), one could consider what’s to follow a spoiler, but it’s so obvious from minute one and revealed well before the halfway mark that I’m not sure too much »

The Resident review

10 March 2011 11:24 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Once extensively working for Hammer, Christopher Lee reunites with his dear old friend after a 34 year separation and the production company's 2008 relaunch. The film that's lured Lee back to the fold firmly fits with Hammer's trademark genre – horror. The Resident is a curious project, combining Hilary Swank as lead and executive producer with Finnish TV director Antti Jokinen, who notably directed the opening segment of 2007's Eurovision Song Contest.

A very preppy-looking Swank plays surgeon Juliet, whose boyfriend cheats on her after she moves especially to New York to be near him. Still hung up on the love of her life and scarred by him betraying her in the bed they shared, Juliet seeks her own apartment in an attempt to rebuild her life. After being shown around some seriously unappealing box-rooms, she stumbles across her dream apartment and too-good-to-be-true landlord, Max (Jeffery Dean Morgan). Reasonably priced and huge, the »
