'The Resident' [Blu-ray]
(Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christopher Lee, Lee Pace, et al / Blu Ray / R / (2010) 2011 / IMAGE Entertainment)

Overview: Juliet (Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby), a beautiful doctor, has found the perfect New York apartment to start a new life after separating from her husband. It's got spacious rooms, a spectacular view, and a handy, handsome landlord. But there are secrets behind every wall and terror in every room as Juliet gets the unnerving feeling that she is not alone.

Blu ray Verdict: The biggest premise of this film is, How can you protect yourself from what you don't see? Juliet (Swank) is looking for a new place to live and gets a call about a loft in the city. The seemingly perfect place and landlord are just what she is looking for. Soon after she moves in she suspects she is not alone, and notices strange things happening to her.

This is another movie that is hard to talk about without giving anything away. This is not really a horror movie so much as a creepy stalker movie, along the lines of 'One Hour Photo.' The things the stalker does to her is enough to make you cringe. He doesn't do sadistic things in the strict sense of the word, but sitting and watching her sleep and running his hands barely over her body from an inch away is pretty creepy!

Without trying to say too much, the main aspect of the movie isn't finding out who the stalker is, but watching as she learns who it is and her reaction. Without Hilary Swank this movie would have been a straight to video disaster. With her it gives the movie a legitamate feel and deserved a wider realease then it got.

Directed by Antti Jokinen and co-starring the always-great Jeffrey Dean Morgan and always-scary Christopher Lee, the final twenty minutes of this one will wreak havoc on your fingernails. [TH] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Feature of a Trailer.
