Storyline

An art teacher spends his nights painting. One night he hears noises in the loft over his. Investigating, he discovers an interloper, who claims he is going to rent the area despite the landlord's earlier assurances that he would not rent the area. Shortly after this incident, the landlord is found murdered. The investigation turns towards a drunken evictee who was seen arguing with the landlord. However, his unwanted neighbor appears threatening and malevolent. Plagued by nightmares, the artist also starts acting irrationally and becomes a suspect. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Quotes

Nick: [complaining to tenant who just moved in upstairs] I'm an artist, and at night, I work in my room.
Will: What's that got to do with me?
Nick: It's not you, it's the noise. You'll hear for yourself these walls are paper thin. Well, the landlord, he told me that he only used the top floor for storage.
Will: So what? You want me to move at 2:00 in the morning?

Atmospheric, but predictable
9 April 2001 | by cinemalad5See all my reviews

Extremely atmospheric thriller starts out great, as young artist (Thomas) living in hellish urban apartment grows more and more paranoid as other tenants end up dead. The high production value and Thomas' performance maintain the interest, but the script -- reminiscent of other, better pictures -- goes nowhere fast, with a been there, done that "surprize" ending you can predict 20 minutes into the film. Seriously ruined by a slapped on, cop-out finale that leaves you furious and unsatisfied.
