Another entry in the Sff’s ‘Freak Me out’ section, Corridor makes for an intriguingly persuasive paranoid psycho thriller that draws from the best of Hitchcock, Polanski and Haneke and is all the more impressive for being the feature debut of Swedish university graduate filmmakers Johan Lundborg and Johan Storm.
Frank is a lonely, brainy socially inapt medical student who moves into a plush apartment. It is the perfect hub to concentrate on his forthcoming exams, until he attracts the interests of Lotte – the intrusive, overly keen to get close girl upstairs. It’s not long before Lotte’s continuous house calls test Frank’s patience. But then he receives threatening phone calls from her violent and jealous boyfriend and, following an eventful night of fear induced theatrics, Frank is convinced that Lotte has been murdered and that he is the killer’s next target.
