Storyline

A decorated firefighter has his wife and son leave him because of his violent tendencies, including playing a game of Russian Roulette with his wife. Only trouble is he believes that the loving neighbor couple and their two children are to blame for them leaving by filling his wife's head with nonsense. He then sets out to discipline the family for their failings. But when the couple reports him to the police, the police will not believe the couple because of the fireman's status in the community. Things escalate until he kills a repairman, then the police and finally launches a totally terroristic attack on the family including again playing Russian Roulette with them.

Great Psycho movie
13 April 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie for the first time last night and i thought Charlie Sheen was frightening as the psycho next door neighbor.

While all the performances here were okay, I thought the film could have used a stronger script in the second half of the film. I just wish the ending confrontation between Charlie and Mare Winningham had been longer.

There were truly some original parts in this movie and i think this movie is a classic in it's own way.

Not great, because of the second part of the movie, but overall i give it a 7 out of 10 star rating...
