DVD: The Resident (15)
Friday 15 July 2011
When doctor Juliet stumbles upon a cheap but stunning loft apartment in Brooklyn, it seems too good to be true. As she looks to overcome a painful break-up, she finds herself being drawn towards her charming landlord who slowly reveals a darker side.
There is nothing in The Resident that has not been done before – or better. It has elements of horror, suspense and slasher films, but fails to deliver on most counts. Jeffrey Dean Morgan starts well but doesn't particularly convince as the stalker and the ending feels rushed. The Hammer title sees the welcome appearance of Christopher Lee, and Hilary Swank is always watchable, but this is not worth staying in for.
