I caught this film on Showtime - it's a tight little thriller with lots of twists and turns - some were obvious, others definitely were not. The plot revolves around a run-down apartment building where the tenants start meeting their makers after a new landlord buys the place. I loved Jennifer Carpenter's performance (I'd never seen her before), who had the tough job of playing two very different twin sisters, one of whom is completely psycho. Judd Nelson is also a nice surprise as a creepy psychiatrist who moves into the building. Most of the characters are interesting and the story moves quickly. The surprise ending is completely unexpected - I didn't see it coming at all. Definitely rent this film or catch it the next time it plays on cable. Well worth the 90 minute running time!
