Storyline

One man's quiet suburban life takes a sickening lurch for the worse when a young couple move into the deserted house next door. From the word go it is obvious these are not the quiet professional types who *should* be living in such a nice street. As more and more unbelievable events unfold, our hero starts to question his own sanity... and those of his family. Written by Brad Jackson

Trivia

Dan Aykroyd wears a pair of sky blue contact lenses throughout the film that have the disquieting effect of making his pupils appear dilated all the time. In the theatrical release and earlier copies of the film this effect is not nearly as noticeable as on HD televisions today. See more »

Probably the Funniest Dark Comedy I have Ever Seen!!!
15 September 2004 | by (world traveler) – See all my reviews

What would you do if your new neighbors were wildly sexy, uninhibited, and made a sport of playing with your emotions and desires, in seductively teasing and dangerously exciting ways? If you think you're happily married (Wife & Kid) and nothing exciting ever happens to you because your too straight edge and repressed (like Belushi's character) then you can only react. And react John does. This comedy works on so many different levels. I have seen every thing Belushi and Aykroyd have ever done on screen, big and small, together and separate, and this is their best work. This movie is unpredictable, and it's meant to be that way. It is a comic reminder that one night can turn your world upside down, inside out and backward. The laughs are both in your face and subtle, one of my favorites comes right at the end, when Vic (Aykroyd) deadpans "It's not enough". You'll just have to see it to know what I mean. If you liked the dialog and humour in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", "Snatch" and other Dark Comedies, and you like Belushi & Aykroyd, You'll love this.
