Above average slasher flick
3 July 1999 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Until it succumbs to slasher cliches in the final reel, The Landlord is a refreshingly different take on the genre. Well written and well acted, The Landlady stars Rocky Balboa's old love interest, Talia Shire, as a sexually repressed (fundamentalist?) Christian who inherits an apartment building in Los Angeles. She proceeds to get the hots for one of her tenants...and nothing will stop her from settling down and starting a family with him. You'll be pleasantly surprised by it all.
