When i got stuck a few days ago over which one out of two films i should rent so,i ended up looking on IMDb and this seemed to be very over-looked,so i chose this film and i found it an extremely enjoyable thriller. The plot:
A condo that is very run-down and rusty gets a new guest,when a man called Quinn arrives and says the he is the new super,and that hes going to clean the place up.Over time Quinn builds a relationship with a single mother and especially her young daughter Sara,but Saras close friend Gus thinks that Quinn is not all that he seems,and when the Land Lord "disaperars",Gus thinks Quinn will do anything to get to Sara.
View on the film:
The film is directed by Gerardo Herrero and i feel that he is pretty under-rated,while the first half of the film has a child abuse undertone(in the second half it becomes the main point of the film)Herrero makes sure to keep it away from being a TV-movie-of-the-week,and keeps his foot on the pedal and keep the thriller lean and mean.
Out of the cast i feel that Charleas Dance is the stand out.as Quinn,Quinn feels like a mix of loners from Cape Fear to The Hitcher,but he keeps the menace under-laying and he shows that he is a very intelligent disturbing man.
Final view on the film:
A really fast moving lean and mean thriller,that feels like its from the classic thriller era of the 70s.
