30 August 1999 | by (São Paulo, Brasil) – See all my reviews

Yes, it came from Hitchcock's "Rear Window". Problem is: they forgot, among other things, credibility, logic and inspiration. Howell is a janitor in a ruined LA building, finds his old friend Harry dead in the bathtub, thinks he killed himself. But when a new lodger takes the dead man's apartment, he smells, based on nothing, trouble and crime. And he and Rae Dawn Chong peeks and peeks the fellow's movements. He is a killer, and the target is in the building across the street. Forget it, don't peek at this one. Two stars.
