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
During filming, David Morse (Mr. Turner) did not speak to Shia LaBeouf (Kale) or any of the other teens. LaBeouf said, "When we finished filming, he was very friendly. But he's a method actor, and as long as we were shooting, he wouldn't say a word to us." See more »
The first time that Ashley goes into Kale's room when Kale and Ronald are trying to clean it up, Kale puts a shirt on top of the tower of Twinkie, but in the next two scenes the Twinkie tower is uncovered then covered again. See more »
Do you think he sees us?
No, he can't see us. But trust me, he can feel us watching.

Another jerk kid in trouble movie - disturbia'd watching this garbage
Here we have yet another jerk kid who thinks everything is owed to him. He's rude to his mom and complains when his xbox and Itunes are turned off when he's under house arrest for hitting his teacher. He's a real winner. For some reason, we're supposed to care about this jerk. There isn't one likable thing about him. He spies on his neighbors and the skinny girl next door (that we're supposed to think is hot, despite the fact she weighs about ten pounds).
Of course, this is a remake of Rear Window, so he starts witnessing his neighbor's suspicious activities. I just wanted the neighbor to kill him. The killer neighbor was actually more likable than the lead.
Why is it these movies come out with complete jerk kids and think we, as the viewing public, would root for them? This guy has no redeeming qualities. I know how it ended, although I couldn't finish it. I hated the lead and just didn't care what happened to him.
The lead actor did a good job, I don't blame him. The cast was good, in fact, just a terribly written part for the lead character we're supposed to care about. Blah.
