During the scene where Max sneaks into Juliet's bed room and tries to kiss her while she's sleeping. When he's leaning in, she is laying on her side, then the camera angle changes and she's on her back, then the camera changes back and she's back on her side and he kisses her. Then she rolls over onto her back and Max stands up. See more »

Creepy thriller about stalking, kinda along the lines of "Sleeping With The Enemy". Good acting adds to the creepiness. I say B
How can you protect yourself from what you don't see. Juliet (Swank) is looking for a new place to live and gets a call about a loft in the city. The seemingly perfect place and landlord are just what she is looking for. Soon after she moves in she suspects she is not alone, and notices strange things happening to her. This is another movie that is hard to talk about without giving anything away. This is not really a horror movie so much as a creepy stalker movie, along the lines of "One Hour Photo". The things the stalker does to her is enough to make you cringe. He doesn't do sadistic things in the strict sense of the word, but sitting and watching her sleep and running his hands barely over her body from an inch away is pretty creepy. Without trying to say too much, the main aspect of the movie isn't finding out who the stalker is, but watching as she learns who it is and her reaction. Without Hilary Swank this movie would have been a straight to video disaster. With her it gives the movie a legitimate feel and deserved a wider release then it got. This was not a great movie, but it is certainly well worth watching. I give it a B.
Would I watch again? - Yes, I think I would.
