Disturbia was filmed on location in the cities of Whittier, California and Pasadena, California. The homes of Kale and Mr. Turner, which were supposed to be next door to each other, were actually located in two different cities. See more »
At the end, when Kale looks into the air shaft with a light bulb, the ray of light used in a movie is actually flashlight. It shows spots of light, instead of a real light bulb, which would have lit up the entire room. See more »
Do you think he sees us?

A Very Cool Teen Romantic Comedy/Drama... With a Serial Killer thrown in!
I was very entertained when I saw an advanced screening of this last night, I was happy that this focused on the characters more, for they are very likable - It just makes the terror far more terrifying! It is of course similar to other thrillers, but what isn't? The young cast give very good performances in what is much like a smart teen romantic comedy, and the opening scene is very well done.
If you just enjoy sitting back and watching a thriller then you'll enjoy this, A LOT, but if you're a fussy nit-picker who think they are beyond teen thrillers, you better stay away.
It's co-written by Carl Ellsworth who also wrote RED EYE and if you enjoyed that you should enjoy this. The direction is good also.
The music choices are cool too.
Lot's of quirky humour and scary set pieces keep you entertained in a fun suspense-mystery-thriller.
"Rear What?" Disturbia - 9/10.
