User Reviews

Why you should and shouldn't see Neighbor
3 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Story A woman (Olivo) has made a full-time hobby of talking her way into homes, conking people over the head and, when they wake up, finding creative ways to torture them to death, smiling and chatting most of the way. She finds it all quite amusing. Don Carpenter's house (with conveniently soundproofed home recording studio) is her next stop.

The scenes in which The Girl charms people into trusting her are tense and at the same time clever, as are the scenes where delusion is juxtaposed against reality (movie reality, anyway), and we aren't sure which is which. However The Girl reserves most of her creativity for her torture sessions, in which she improvises with staples, nails, glass stirrers, and too many other implements to remember. You'll want to grab The Girl by the shoulders and ask "why?," long before the question occurs to Don. If you haven't yet been desensitized to movie violence, this movie will either do the job or give you nightmares.

Why you should see it: You're getting numb to movie gore, and you're watching 365 movies this year, so you ain't picky.

Why you shouldn't see it: The Girl is one movie monster who stops being fun to watch before long, and the glass swizzle-stick scene is an ordeal even if you're used to horror movies.
