Storyline

Fresh from Des Moines, Iowa, Sara Matthews has just landed in Los Angeles as a college freshman studying fashion design. She meets handsome Stephen, party-lover Tracy, and roommate Rebecca. Rebecca is nice, sweet and ready to share everything with Sara. It could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. But Tracy is convinced that there's something seriously wrong with Rebecca and bad things start happening to everyone close to Sara. If Sara is to have a normal college experience, she's going to have to get to the bottom of what's up with Rebecca and quickly get out of her clutches. Written by napierslogs

Say what you will, but I liked it
10 April 2016 | by davispittmanSee all my reviews

The Roommate is a pretty entertaining suspense fatal attraction thriller. The actors did a good job representing their characters. Sarah and rebecca were good characters, and the actors gave good performances. Also Cam Gigandent is very enjoyable here, he's well acted, good looking, and makes his character very likable. I really liked that the chemistry between all the cast was very evident, there wasn't any scenes where I felt like the casting was wrong or the on screen chemistry wasn't there. I liked the tension in the movie, was the tension perfect?? No. But it sufficed and worked. The violence is not overly bloody or graphic, hence the PG-13 rating. The sexual content isn't overwhelming either, the sexual scenes are present for specific purposes, they are needed and necessary to the plot. Francis Fisher makes an appearance here, granted its a rather short one, but she does well with what little screen time she gets. Overall, this is an enjoyable fatal attraction creepy college aged thriller. No it's not perfect, but it accomplished what it set out to accomplish. 8/10 for The Roommate.
