Storyline

The Vagrant tells the story of Graham Krackowski (the always magnificent Paxton), who moves into his new home only to be terrorized by an unruly vagrant that lives across the street in an abandon lot. What begins as simply an inconvenience to him, escalates into an all out war of head games, wit, and eventually murder. Written by jasonc13

You'll likely never find "Yellow Beard" or this for long
29 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a pointless tale of a young urban professional being harassed by a homeless nut-case. Featuring heavyweights such as Ironsides and Paxton betraying its direct to video fate with some fine expeditions into black comedy. It's not very scary unless you are deathly afraid of the homeless, like myself.

Paxton plays a rather sympathetic character (somewhat a rarity for him) and shines as he begins to suspect he is falling victim to some manner of dementia as he is tormented. He quickly becomes "paranoid" and fortifies his newly purchased home against the all too clever Vagrant and proceeds to have his life all but ruined. The plot is thin and thoroughly ridiculous yet the laughs never stop, which is where this title stands head and shoulders above it's B movie ilk

Video stores are chucking this dud left and right so head to some place that sells things that no one wants and pick up a copy. You might not regret it!
