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

One Of The Funniest Indie Horror Comedies In Recent Memory
24 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to watching The Landlord after purchasing it at a recent Chiller Theatre convention. A couple friends told me they really dug it although combining these two genres rarely works out. In this film's case the emphasis is definitely on the comedy. If your looking for true horror this isn't your film,the gore is very basic made on a budget stuff and you won't be biting your finger nails in suspense. That isn't really a criticism just want you to know what type of movie you are getting. Where it shines is the unique storyline, hilarious dialog, and wacky situations the characters face. Speaking of which everyone does a fantastic job in there respective roles. The standout hand to be the actor playing the lead Demon. The scene where he steals the leads credit card and becomes addicted to the Home Shopping Network was a highlight.

I kept thinking to myself what a delightfully funny and twisted sitcom this could be in a more open minded world. The Landlord was a pleasant surprise and had me laughing out loud and engaged in the storyline almost straight through which is saying quite a bit for a modestly budgeted indie.FYI I'm not associated with the film in any way, check out my other reviews. The Landlord is worth picking up asap.
