Great Psycho movie, 13 April 2006
Author: arvie88 ( from Netherlands

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...
