An Underrated Indie Thriller!
23 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Two Roomer is a surprisingly taut thriller, penned as an Indie film, but delivering a larger than expected punch for the money. Brett Weinstock (Secrets of Aspen) stars as Aaron, a best buddy-cum-neighbor to Kris (Tom Kennerly-Las Vegas, Smokin' Aces) an older, successful, but ultimately world-jaded drinking buddy. After a typical night of imbibing top-shelf liquor and women, a hung-over Aaron stumbles into Kris' Condo to find the older man's body hanging in the foyer. A suicide notes wishes Aaron well and instructions to take a gift—hidden in a guitar—but leave the rest for the police to find.

Aaron's shock and confusion gives him pause to question whether what he saw was even real. Furthering his confusion is his current and Kris' Ex girlfriend Bianca (Bonnie Ryan- House, Sweet Little Lies), who after visiting Kris' apartment, denies seeing any body. The question of whether Kris is still miraculously alive takes a back seat when Aaron is visited by some old acquaintances of Kris'. Men who know just a little too much about what is really going on…

The Movie is reminiscent in tone to a classic Noire film, but is much more claustrophobic in nature. First time producers Jay Robert Scott and Chris Doerner were able to assemble a surprisingly cohesive group of professionals considering their budget limitations. Mr. Kennerly (Directing) and Todd Banhazl (Director of Photography) worked closely together to craft a full-length film that winds each shot more tightly as the story moves forward. Banhazl's photography ensnares each character in tight shots as they become trapped by the roles that each has made for themselves.

The Two Roomer delivers a claustrophobic view of friends, relationships and the fateful decisions that lead inevitably toward tragedy.
