Storyline

The young architect Walter leaves his wife Linda to go to L.A. to draw a mansion for Harrison. On the highway a truck driver almost drives him off the road. Walter calls the truck-company to complain. The driver gets fired. When Walter arrives to the apartment-block where he has rented a flat he meets the choleric landlord William and the others living there. But now the problems starts. The next morning somebody has ruined his drawing and Harrison dislikes what Walter has drawn. But soon everything gets out of hand. Walter gets into more trouble - one morning he finds rats all over his apartment and the next day he finds his beautiful neighbor killed in his bed - and he starts to think that it is the fired truck driver who is out to get revenge.

Thought this Picture was a Comedy at First !
12 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After viewing this film into about the middle of the picture, I began to think it was a comedy and found it quite funny. Then, all of a sudden, things started to get crazy and Rob Lowe(Walter Woods),"Austin Powers in Goldmember",'02, wakes up with a young lady in bed with him who is very much dead. James Belushi ,(Harrison/Oliver)," Return to Me",2000, visits Walter Woods apartment and all hell breaks loose. It was very difficult for me to consider this a thriller after having laughed so much during the first half of the film! Everyone will see this picture in a different WAY!
