After his father is killed in a car accident, things unravel for Kale Brecht and he is placed under house-arrest for punching his Spanish teacher. Having nothing better to do, Kale occupies himself by spying on his neighbors. But one night, he witnesses what appears to be a murder going on in Mr. Turner's house. Kale becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind these murders but, after a few unsettling run-ins with Mr. Turner, it becomes a matter of life and death. And the ominous question: Who is watching whom? Written by O.G.

Did You Know?


In the shot where Kale is spying on Mr Turner cutting his grass through a gap in the fence, the shot is actually forced-perspective. The 'house' behind David Morse was actually a 6'x5' section of decorated wall, positioned in a way so that it would look full sized from the camera's POV. David Morse was actually taller than the set behind him See more »


When Kale presses the menu button on the Xbox controller, he's supposed to be offline, but you can see that he has 2 new messages button and that there are 2 friends online, so he's still online. See more »

Kale: Do you think he sees us?
Daniel Brecht: No, he can't see us. But trust me, he can feel us watching.

I thought this movie would be good, but the minute I saw the car barrel rolling through the air near the beginning, I knew it would be a Hollywood crap fest. I was right. Why would a serial killer, someone who is obviously being extremely careful to keep his secret, kill people in his house with the lights on, the blinds on his windows up, and right in front of the windows, where all the neighbors can see. Furthermore, why, when he finds out that the neighbor kid is spying on him, continue these behaviors, not to mention then kidnap the kid's mother, pretty much ensuring that the kid gets involved even further? Oh I know, because fools will love it. When I pointed out these glaring flaws to the people I watched it with, they said I was over analyzing the movie, and that I should just enjoy it. I tend to enjoy movies that are believable. For instance, when the girl catches Kale spying on her, and he gives the most canned speech of all time "You look at the whole world, when I only see you...", and says something to the extent of "Even though that's the creepiest thing I've ever heard, I find it romantic, and therefore, find you attractive, even though I just said I think you are creepy." It's just dumb. Not to mention that entire plot just takes away from the story and is completely unnecessary. After Kale is captured by the serial killer, the man reveals his entire devious plan to him! Honestly, I thought movies got to the point where we didn't have the villains giving monologues anymore. Now there are talks for a sequel. What, does another serial killer happen to move into the same house and Kale starts spying on him too? Ugh. This is just a movie that had potential story-wise, ending up to be a disaster.
