All the neighboring buildings are being demolished for a new development, but these tenants won't give up their homes without a fight.
29 October 1998 | by UranusHzSee all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was about 8 and it gave me a serious case of the heebeejeebies. So much so that here, over 20 years later, I still remember it. Its horror value isn't based on a lot of gore, or startles, but just plain creepy situations. It's worth renting, although it will probably seem pretty tame by today's standards.
