Was That Joe the Plumber?
30 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes this offering is hard to watch because of the frantic, neurotic presence of the principle character. We know that there has been a silent killer around, so we're immediately aware that this guy is going to make his presence known at some point. The director does a good job of presenting us with a host of possible killers while keeping the tension up. Even the lady across the hall is a true virago who passes judgment on any woman who gets killed. She feels that if you get yourself killed, you probably deserved it. I alway wonder why people can be so careful on the one hand and so stupid on the other. Also, the husband must a long suffering type who puts up with his wife's problems. I guess we all know what is going to happen and wait to watch it. There are so many who come and go in the apartment that the security is worthless. There's that funny little man with the whiny voice, the jilted boyfriend, the man at the hardware store, the man at the shoe repair shop. It builds suspense nicely.
