I didn’t know one person in this cast. That is most likely because of the low budget this movie had.
The first hour of the movie is incredibly slow and it feels like nothing is happening. It’s like watching a reality tv show that just follows people’s everyday lives, but nothing really happened. Except for the husband having an affair. But, way too much of the movie is dedicated to the couple setting up the room for their baby. However, once the landlord comes to the house near the end, the action picks up very quickly. Some of the scenes are scary and may not necessarily be enjoyable, but they are shocking and definitely interesting.
Like I said before, nothing really happens for the majority of the movie. But, the parts that could be considered scary aren’t really scary. There’s a few jump scares, but thats about it. The purpose is mainly to be creepy, and the landlord accomplishes that without a doubt.
There is a 0% chance I will ever rewatch this. It’s hard to watch a movie again when you know the ending and the ending to this movie is basically the entire movie. I would just get too bored watching it. During the first hour, I almost turned the movie off because I knew the landlord would do something, but that something just never seemed to ever occur.
The plot itself and the idea of the film is very relevant in our society today. The beginning shows statistics about how many people are being watched in their houses without knowing. It’s a staggering number and frankly very frightening. The idea of the movie is good, but it could have been executed much better. But, the most frustrating part of the entire movie is that we never find out why the landlord is doing this. You will see that he does much more than just watch them, but why? There always should be a reason to why something is happening.
