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.

Disturbia? I would say,"Annoying"
25 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I looked forward to seeing this movie especially after reading all the wonderful comments written on this web site. Unfortunately, this may have been the worst movie that I have seen to date. The first three-quarters of the movie was about self-serving, self-absorbed snotty teen-agers which I imagine is the movies biggest draw. The adolescents depicted here would have grown up bruised, if allowed to have grown up at all in my household which made the majority of the movie tedious to watch. David Morse played the "heavy" and has a magnificent film presence. I'm sorry to see that his role was so implausible that it rendered him almost useless. If he were the main focus and his character expanded, this movie would be hard to beat. I was on the edge of my seat three times but it was contemplating getting my $4 early show ticket refunded. The camera work smacked of "The Blair Witch Project" which was my pick for the worst film ever until now. Please, can the movie companies ever make a suspenseful thriller for grown-ups and forget pandering to an audience that will accept such low standards for entertainment? Number one at the box office? I feel cheated after watching this. At 54 years old, I feel as if I were much too old to get the interactions of teenagers. This movie was slow, went no-where and lacked even the hint of surprise. This movie was so bad, in my opinion, that it inspired me to write my very first movie comment. I apologize to those who love this movie, but to those who have not seen it yet, beware. It may disturb you as it did me.
