20- The Resident [3.0]

When a young doctor suspects she may not be alone in her new Brooklyn loft, she learns that her landlord has formed a frightening obsession with her.

The Resident, awkward editing and all, is a generic voyeuristic thriller that has Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Comedian in Watchmen) playing a creep once again. The first act stays away from genre trappings, but the film evolves into exploitation with a bit of Psycho thrown in for good measure. Christopher Lee is wasted as a red herring. No need to watch unless you enjoy watching third acts unfold in as generic fashion as possible.

    That’s an interesting point of view, though I am not sure if I agree.
