Polanski should be proud!! This movie, sorta "The Tenant"-meets-"Rosemary's Baby" is a real hoot. Smartly avoiding camp elements, talented director James Merendino guides his cast through what seems to be a movie made for $50 with stylish flair and moments of both real humor and suspense. The main actor is pretty funny at conveying the all-too-real paranoia of being stalked by a Satan-worshipper in Los Angeles. A dream sequence is particularly Polanski-friendly, while an array of hipsters/bohos parade around to torment our hero to great avail. Horror it isn't, but as a mordantly funny black comedy on a shoestring budget -- "The Upstairs Neighbor" succeeds!!
