Lame Low-Budget Thriller
1 December 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Sunshine, Nevada, the middle-aged housewife Melanie Leroy (Talia Shire) sees her husband Ralston Leroy (Nathan Le Grand) shagging her neighbor and she freaks out. Then she poisons Ralston, who is allergic to seafood, in the dinner.

Melanie travels to the California to the apartment building that she has inherited from her aunt and when she meets her tenant Patrick Forman (Jack Coleman), she believes that he would be a perfect husband for her. She uses her maiden name, Melanie Leroy, and becomes obsessed for him, killing anyone that might interpose between Patrick and her.

"The Landlady" is a lame low-budget thriller, with a plot with many holes and an awful lead actress. The story is a dreadful rip-off of "Fatal Attraction" and "Misery" with a predictable conclusion. I bought this DVD some years ago and today I unfortunately decided to see it. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
