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

fun and blood combined into one
17 September 2009 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Through some friends on the net, at youtube, the told me that in the states a new independent movie was breaking records. It appeared at festivals and always got a big cheer. Then one of those friends send over to Europe some flyers about the movie, it was called The Landlord. Geeks out there who know me do know that when a independent is coming out I'm always trying to contact the director. So I had already a few DVD's over here signed. Anyway, the contact with Emil Hyde went smoothly so after a few weeks the DVD arrived. What I did knew so far was that it was a kind of comedy/horror. And in fact it is. The editing is really nicely done with some effects that reminded me of the 70's. Remember, Altered States. Although that it is a low budget flick the actors are really believable. Especially the woman who plays the cop, and the (demon)landlord itself. The fun part is that the ghosts/demons appear in bright daylight and that reminded me of Nightbreed. There isn't that much blood in it but when it flows it flows in a perfect gory way. So if you are in for a good entertainment then this one is your pick. Really, I was surprised that it is possible to attract the perfect score too. Did I say that the effects were done in a good way too, the only thing that I hated, but it's normal that they used it, was the CGI when the house explodes. I knew that they haven't got the budget too do it in real, but it''s only a few minutes in the movie, luckily that they didn't used it for the gory effects. Well done.
