Storyline

The Landlord is the story of Tyler, the unfortunate young proprietor of a demon-haunted apartment building. While finding tenants has never been a problem for Tyler, keeping them alive long enough to pay rent is. No matter how nicely Tyler asks, he cannot keep the demons from eating the renters (or persuade them to wait a month or two, even). They never listen. And why should they? They have an all-you-can-eat buffet of delicious human flesh and Tyler as their pet monkey. But all that might change when Tyler takes a liking to the newest tenant, a desperate young woman running from demons of her own. Written by Anonymous

Pleased to see this film score as high as it has....
27 September 2010 | by (Raleigh, NC, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Landlord" has caught a lot of grief on some other sites (including NF) and so I was gratified to see that it has managed to rack up six stars here (so far). I enjoy independent movies that don't take themselves too seriously and TL certainly falls into this category. The acting is wildly variable, both from character to character and from scene to scene, and the FX (both practical and CGI) are pretty atrocious, but Hyde has his heart in the right place and he manages to eventually carry it off. The screenplay is pretty good and there are some real zingers here and there. You can tell in the first ten minutes that the writer(s) did not set out to write a script just for the money...everyone involved in the movie obviously just likes horror movies (especially "The Evil Dead" trilogy and "Beetlejuice"). This is definitely worth a watch if you have so me patience and can overlook the cheap latex face appliances.
