Storyline

An art teacher spends his nights painting. One night he hears noises in the loft over his. Investigating, he discovers an interloper, who claims he is going to rent the area despite the landlord's earlier assurances that he would not rent the area. Shortly after this incident, the landlord is found murdered. The investigation turns towards a drunken evictee who was seen arguing with the landlord. However, his unwanted neighbor appears threatening and malevolent. Plagued by nightmares, the artist also starts acting irrationally and becomes a suspect.

Dark, claustrophobic, and downright creepy
16 February 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This film proves that you don't need a huge budget and a slew of special effects to scare the audience. The film is dark and creepy, very claustrophobic.

Nick is an undiscovered artist living in a rundown building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. He's losing his part time job, and is already so broke that he doesn't have a phone. His life is spiraling downward.

Somebody is murdering people in Nick's building. He hears strange noises through the walls. There's a mysterious man in the supposedly empty apartment upstairs, but nobody else seems to know he's there. Nick is not feeling well. He's feverish. He might be imagining all this. Perhaps he's not. Strange things keep happening -- sometimes just little things -- that make everything feel tilted and out of control. The film feels sort of like "Eraserhead" meets the "Sixth Sense". When I came out of the theater I took a big gulp of fresh air and looked all around me to reassure myself that real life was nothing like this movie.
