‘The Neighbour’ Review

30 November 2016 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Josh Stewart, Alex Essoe, Bill Engvall, Melissa Bolona, Luke Edwards, Jaqueline Fleming, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Skipp Sudduth, David Kallaway | Written by Marcus Dunstan, Patrick Melton | Directed by Marcus Dunstan

It’s safe to say I’m a fan of the films of Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Between them, the duo have written and/or directed some fun fear flicks: Feast and it’s sequels (which I truly adore), Saw 4 – 7 and the fantastic pairing of The Collector and The Collection. It’s been four years since the latter film, their last feature, and now they’re back with The Neighbour – which also marks the Third time the filmmakers have worked with actor Josh Stewart.

Set in Cutter, Mississippi, The Neighbour follows two small-time drug-traffickers, John (Stewart) and Rosie (Essoe), who operate a weigh station next door to their creepy, hunting-obsessed neighbour, Troy. Planning to leave their drug-dealing life behind, »

Marcus Dunstan talks stunts, ‘Saw’ and his new film ‘The Neighbour’

27 October 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Marcus Dunstan interview for The Neighbour.

Marcus Dunstan is a well known name in the horror realm. Alongside Patrick Melton he wrote four of the Saw films (IV – VII), as well as directing both The Collector and The Collection. He steps ever so slightly away from the horror genre though with his latest film – The Neighbour. The film is an intense thriller with nods to horror. We caught the film at Frightfest and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The film stars Josh Stewart and Alex Essoe as John and Rosie, a young couple that have been downtrodden by life. They make their money by helping out John’s Uncle, a man with heavy criminal ties. To make matters worse, their neighbour Troy (Bill Engvall) is exceptionally creepy. Desperate to break out of their rut, the pair decide to leave town after one last job. However, after John returns home and Rosie is »

Alex Essoe talks eating bugs & nightmare neighbours

26 October 2016 7:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alex Essoe interview for The Neighbour.

Alex Essoe is one of our favourite acting folks around at the moment. Her turn in Starry Eyes as an actress desperate to succeed is hypnotic and haunting. Since then she’s carved up a strong career on the independent film circuit, and it surely won’t be long until she breaks into the big leagues. Her latest venture, The Neighbour, sees her character Rosie kidnapped by her neighbour.

Rosie and her boyfriend John (Josh Stewart) are down on their luck and are making ends meet by working with John’s criminal uncle. Whilst John is out on what will hopefully be their last job, Rosie witnesses their creepy neighbour Troy (Bill Engvall) do something terrible, and finds herself as the next target. When John returns home he suspects Troy might be to blame for her disappearance and sets out on a rescue mission. »

‘Saw’ writer Marcus Dunstan reveals identity of Doctor Gordon’s ‘Saw VII’ accomplices

11 October 2016 1:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Marcus Dunstan reveals the identity of Doctor Gordon’s accomplices in ‘Saw VII’. Be warned – this post contains spoilers for the ‘Saw’ franchise.

It’s October, the month of the horror film, meaning it won’t be long until a re-watch of the Saw movies is underway. It’s a solid franchise, though we couldn’t help but feel a little cheated by that ending in Saw VII. Hoffman is hunted down by unknown assailants, one of whom is identified as Doctor Gordon, the others are never unmasked. It’s a mystery that has bugged this writer for several years and we finally now have confirmation on just who was helping Gordon punish Hoffman.

When the opportunity to interview one of the writers of Saw IV – VII, Marcus Dunstan, presented itself, we saw it as the perfect time to get to the bottom of the mystery. Here’s what he »

Frightfest 2016: ‘The Neighbour’ Review

28 August 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Neighbour review: A terrifyingly tense tale that grabs the attention from the start.

The Neighbour review by Kat Hughes, Frightfest 2016.

The Neighbour Review

In 2009 Marcus Dunstan wowed audiences with The Collector. Starring Josh Stewart as Arkin an ex-con whose planned heist of his new employer’s country house goes awry. The house has already been taken over by ‘the collector’, a devious serial killer who likes to collect his victims. The pairing of Stewart and Dunstan re-teamed for a follow-up The Collection, a film that failed to reach the same excitement level as the first. Seeking to reignite the spark, the duo have joined forces for a third, but completely different film, The Neighbour.

This time Stewart plays John, a down-trodden young man who makes his living helping his uncle run his local crime ring. Whilst John is helping his uncle, his wife Rosie (Alex Essoe) is left at »
