Storyline

The young architect Walter leaves his wife Linda to go to L.A. to draw a mansion for Harrison. On the highway a truck driver almost drives him off the road. Walter calls the truck-company to complain. The driver gets fired. When Walter arrives to the apartment-block where he has rented a flat he meets the choleric landlord William and the others living there. But now the problems starts. The next morning somebody has ruined his drawing and Harrison dislikes what Walter has drawn. But soon everything gets out of hand. Walter gets into more trouble - one morning he finds rats all over his apartment and the next day he finds his beautiful neighbor killed in his bed - and he starts to think that it is the fired truck driver who is out to get revenge.

Between minutes 16 and 18, when Dieter comes to visit Walter with a beer in his hand, the content of the bottle changes several times. When he puts the beer on the table, the upper part of the bottle is empty. When he picks it up, it's full again. He keeps it in his hand while the camera goes from one person to another, and at the next camera turn the bottle top is empty again. When he leaves the room, the bottle in his hand is full.

This movie has got the Children of the damned-disease...
22 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Even though LIVING IN PERIL has got a remarkable **swedish** feeling over it it S*U*C*K*S BIG TIME!

It has got simularities to just-as-awful CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED like so many other movies throughout Hollywood's history.

1. Laughable horrors. Nobody ever thought that white headed children was frightening, nor rats.

2. Stupid script, aka IDIOT-POLICE and A SILLY BAD-GUY.

and the classic one

3. ACTORS THAT ARE FUN TO WATCH JUST BECAUSE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE THEM SERIOUS!!!! Just take Rob Lowe and James Belushi! And I thought the mix with Christopher Reeve, Mark Hamill, and Kirstey Alley was fun!

Otherwise we have great actors like Dean Stockwell and Earl Boen getting awfully thrown away.

Allow be to bring out a 3/10
