(Jay Baruchel, Scott Speedman, Emily Hampshire, et al / DVD / R / (2010) 2011 / Magnolia)
Overview: Neighbors Spencer (Scott Speedman) and Louise (Emily Hampshire) have bonded over their fascination with a recent string of murders terrorizing their community. When a new tenant named Victor (Jay Baruchel) moves into the building, all three quickly hit it off. However, they soon discover each has his or her own dark secret.
DVD Verdict: With a stand-out quote early on that makes this thriller what it s ("A woman your age should always be concerned for her safety. It's a nasty world"), we find Victor (Baruchel) moving to Montreal ... in the middle of a killing spree by a serial killer - as you do!
He meets his new
neighbors Louise and Spencer (Speedman) and does his best to become
friends with them. Soon secrets are revealed amongst them and, as you might well be able to guess, pretty soon all hell breaks loose!
I have to say that for a cheaply-made movie 'Good Neighbors' is a highly enjoyable flick. However, the big problem with it is that it was
very flatly acted, very uncaringly scripted re: our characters and their surroundings. That said, it never got bad enough to stop watching
and trying to figure out who the killer would turn out to be! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
