"The Resident" is a predictable thriller that the viewer knows exactly what is going to happen in the next scene. I do not understand why an awarded actress like Hilary Swank that was Oscar winner twice in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category could accept to participate in a lame film like "The Resident". My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "A Inquilina" ("The Tennant")
