After his father is killed in a car accident, things unravel for Kale Brecht and he is placed under house-arrest for punching his Spanish teacher. Having nothing better to do, Kale occupies himself by spying on his neighbors. But one night, he witnesses what appears to be a murder going on in Mr. Turner's house. Kale becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind these murders but, after a few unsettling run-ins with Mr. Turner, it becomes a matter of life and death. And the ominous question: Who is watching whom?Written by
In the shot where Kale is spying on Mr Turner cutting his grass through a gap in the fence, the shot is actually forced-perspective. The 'house' behind David Morse was actually a 6'x5' section of decorated wall, positioned in a way so that it would look full sized from the camera's POV. David Morse was actually taller than the set behind him See more »
When Kale sticks the lamp into the compartment that had the first victim's head in plastic, the light shown on the wall as if it were a flashlight, but the light was merely a lit lamp. See more »
Do you think he sees us?
No, he can't see us. But trust me, he can feel us watching.

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.
