      Jeff M When I was browsing through the titles available on Amazon Prime and came across a movie with Juliette Lewis, William Hurt and friggin Shelley Duvall, I stopped everything and immediately hit PLAY. I didn't care if it was good or bad - I just had to watch. Unfortunately, it's pretty stinky. It's yet another tired, unoriginal thriller without thrills that throws credibility out the window with each passing second. I was laughing by the end when a frightened Lewis was wading through a room full of packing peanuts. I kid you not. Lewis, an actress who can be stunningly good and atrociously awful, actually does a credible job here for the most part, although she and Hurt make the least convincing romantic couple in recent history. It doesn't help that Hurt sleepwalks through a role he obviously knows is way below his standards. And Duvall is wasted, appearing in a handful of scenes that are basically the same scene repeated over and over again. There's not much more to say - I guess there was a good reason that I had never heard of this film. By the way, if you have an adverse reaction to mice and/or maggots, don't go near this movie. You'll have nightmares for years to come... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Regina P I am congratulating myself for correctly guessing the main culprit before the final shot. Decent film. It kept a brisk pace, which is nice for never letting the audience get bored to pieces. Middle of the road popcorn flick. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/24/23 Full Review Audience Member it's lousy but watchable..three good actors go to waste.why on earth william hurt agreed to be in this movie..anyway..it could become a good dark comedy with just a little push.weird nutcase new york neighbour (what's so strange about that..) creates a living nightmare for julliette leaving upstairs,so she will..move out??guy thinks the building is all his.i told you it's a comedy..oh and boyfriend hurt may be a nutcase too.welcome to manhattan !!!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review farah r God this movie is terrible! The story is absurd, the acting is horrible, and the ending is so predictable. What a waste of time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie is a combination of mysterious and clever. It has a bit of gloomy too. The main actress finds herself in a sort of a neighbor war and doesn't give up all the way till the end. By the way, I've just seen that the "F" on the poster has the shape of a sword - very thematical. I found a flaw in the movie, or a plot hole(I belive), one that stayed unexplaned. But even if taken as a flaw, only to make the movie more catchy, I would say it doesn't take the pleasure away. Apart from that, the movie has some interesting plot turns. Some of them at the very end. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Tho' final and plot twist is kinda predictable, great thriller with classic 90s style. Creepy neighbors are the thang and awesome Juliette Lewis performance ?? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
