Storyline

Expecting their first child, newlyweds, Ryan and Claire, can't wait to settle in their new home, even though their unkempt and monosyllabic new landlord, Gerald, is a downright creepy recluse who lives nearby. However, what the unsuspecting couple don't realise, is that the taciturn overseer has already rigged their new nest with undetectable cameras and a closed-circuit surveillance system to watch their every move. Inevitably, as the repulsive Gerald keeps himself glued to his monitors to watch his private Big Brother show, no secrets are safe--including those between the couple. Is there a way to expose the slumlord's obsession? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

Camera Guy Joe: Fibre optics. Now, it's a little bit more expensive, but in terms of home security, it's top of the line. 1080p, backup batteries, and they're practically invisible. There is nothing more off-putting than inviting some folks over to your place, they see one of these ancient, convenient store cameras, pointing directly at them as they're waiting out on your front porch. You know what I mean? Who wants that? No one. These little guys right here, they can be hidden almost anywhere. "Discretion" is...

Nothing unique, just another typical horror film
30 April 2016 | by hellhound-88188See all my reviews

To start this review i have to give MY summary of the film. A pregnant woman who is attractive is watched by a creep. And trust me, they make sure you know he's a creep.

The story line, is a simple and basic one, but with a little extra, however when you are slightly shown this 'extra', there is nothing secretive about it, and its obvious the conclusion of it.

I do respect the camera work they do to make sure you understand that he is a creepy man, but they do it so many times that it gets annoying. And whilst watching this they never portray this man as a human or a person with a difficult past etc. They just treat it as if he has always been this evil. I expected to see hints of a difficult childhood, maybe him being upset that he's alone but sadly this never happens. He's just a creepy man who watches people.

The acting in this film was great in my opinion, and Neville Archambault was amazing at taking on this role as this evil, horrible man, so i can give the acting as a positive.

I believe the reason i see this film as nothing special, is the ending. Most of the films i watch have the worst, and guessable ending there are. The best ending I've seen however is 'Gladiator' as everything was put together so perfectly. A film like this i cant really blame for having a guessable ending, but it just gets worse and logic breaks every part of it down. It would make no sense if this really occurred. The ending was so terrible, I might of given this film an 7/10, but this made me drop it so far down.

Basically, the reason why i disliked this film is because of how logic stops the whole film from making sense. Sure, logic can be forgotten here and there, but in this film it basically doesn't exist.

Watch the film if you just want something to give you the creeps, but if you are expecting anything more, don't waste your time watching it.
