Storyline

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.

A Very Cool Teen Romantic Comedy/Drama... With a Serial Killer thrown in!
6 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I was very entertained when I saw an advanced screening of this last night, I was happy that this focused on the characters more, for they are very likable - It just makes the terror far more terrifying! It is of course similar to other thrillers, but what isn't? The young cast give very good performances in what is much like a smart teen romantic comedy, and the opening scene is very well done.

If you just enjoy sitting back and watching a thriller then you'll enjoy this, A LOT, but if you're a fussy nit-picker who think they are beyond teen thrillers, you better stay away.

It's co-written by Carl Ellsworth who also wrote RED EYE and if you enjoyed that you should enjoy this. The direction is good also.

The music choices are cool too.

Lot's of quirky humour and scary set pieces keep you entertained in a fun suspense-mystery-thriller.

"Rear What?" Disturbia - 9/10.
