Terrifying tale of a man trapped in room with murder, madness and maybe even a monster
18 March 2014 | by VideoEmbolismSee all my reviews

This guy decides to stay in an apartment for a month because somehow if he does he become the legal owner of it because his Grandma willed it to him and its awesome, huge and best of all rent-controlled so he'll be able to live there forever for a super cheap price.

The only catch is that he can't leave the apartment for an entire month because if he does somehow the landlord will be able to rent it to someone else because technically nobody would be living there (?).

Get it? I don't. But I like it because it is a perfect example how stupid and illogical real laws are in real life when it comes to real estate and what people have to do just to have a place to live at a decent price. I found this realistic. I could totally see this hateful stupid conundrum forced upon some poor sucker just looking for a good place to live happening in real life so I found the premise rather compelling. Just think if you won the lottery but you were only allowed to keep the money as long as someone else told you how to spend it. Huh? Yea? Exactly. Well, not really but you still get what I'm talking about.

So the guy moves in.

Of course that is when the horror and madness starts. "Occupant" builds tensions and dread nicely while never becoming boring or repetitive which is quite an accomplishment for a tale that takes place almost entirely in an apartment.

Murder, madness and even maybe supernatural stuff ensue. The story builds in a way just enough to keep us intrigued while never fully answering what is happening.

Good stuff. Check it out.
