Jerry and Rachel are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and family, she pushes Jerry and Rachel into a series of increasingly dangerous situations, using the technology of everyday life to track and control their every move.
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
The movie was originally rated R but was re-rated PG-13 on appeal. See more »
When Kale and his dad are in the accident in the beginning of the film, their overturned SUV is hit by a second vehicle. In the wide shot of Kale exiting the SUV, you can see through a hole in the floor that the gas tank, spare tire, and other essential components of the truck are not there. They had been removed (presumably for safety and weight reduction) before the accident. See more »
Do you think he sees us?
No, he can't see us. But trust me, he can feel us watching.

Really good version of Rear Window where a kid on house arrest realizes
that his neighbor is a serial killer.
While not scary as such (you can pretty much guess where this is going
to go because it is by the numbers) this is a nice thrill ride that
will keep you watching to the end. You like the kid and his friends and
can sympathize with his plight. If there is a flaw its that the film
could almost be a well made TV movie, there really is no reason this
needed to be seen on the big screen (other than the attention a
genuinely good thriller would attract). Still this is worth seeing
though I'd wait for a bargain matinée or a rental on a rainy Saturday
night once it comes out on DVD.
