From Amazon.co.uk

Alfred Hitchcock fans may experience déjà vu upon exposure to this voyeuristic thriller. That's because director DJ Caruso (The Salton Sea) and co-writer Carl Ellsworth (Red Eye) use Rear Window as a jumping-off point before cherry-picking from more recent scare fare, like The Blair Witch Project. In the prologue, 17-year-old Kale (Shia LaBeouf, Transformers) loses his beloved father to a car crash. A year passes, and he's still on edge. When a teacher makes a careless remark about his dad, Kale punches him out, and is sentenced to house arrest. After his mom (Carrie-Anne Moss, Memento) takes away his Xbox and iTunes privileges, the suburban slacker spies on his neighbours to pass the time. In the process, he develops a crush on Ashley (Sarah Roemer, The Grudge 2), the hot girl next door, and becomes convinced that another, the soft-spoken Mr. Turner (David Morse, The Green Mile), is a serial killer. With the help of the flirtatious Ashley, practical joke-playing pal Ronnie (Aaron Yoo), and an array of high-tech gadgets, like cell-phone cameras and digital camcorders, Kale sets out to solve a major case without leaving his yard (a feat that would prove more challenging for a less affluent sleuth). In the end, it's pretty familiar stuff, but there are plenty of scares once Turner realises he's being watched, and rising star LaBeouf makes for an engaging leading man--despite his character’s propensity for slugging Spanish instructors. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

A serial killer living next door? Kale Brecht (Shia LaBeouf), is a teenager placed under house-arrest after punching his Spanish teacher in the middle of class. Deprived of his X-Box by his had-enough mother Julie (Carrie-Ann Moss), Kale becomes a voyeur, increasingly interested in the lives of his neighbours, particularly Ashley (Sarah Roemer), the new girl next door. As his observations increase, Kale becomes convinced that another neighbour, Mr Turner (David Morse), is the serial killer at loose in the community. Is there more to Mr Turner than he makes out, or is it just a case of an overactive imagination?

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable 11 Oct 2007
Format:Blu-ray
This is Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, but for teenagers. I don't mean that as a criticism - it's actually very watchable.

Instead of being stuck in a flat with a broken leg like James Stewart, the hero of this film has been tagged for punching his Spanish teacher. He's bored, he has a few hand shandies (well, he's a teenager!) and he begins to spy on his neighbours. One neighbour in particular begins to look suspicious.

To reveal any more would be unfair, but it's an intellient and very enjoyable film. It's difficult to be intensely original in this genre, but it's definitely worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie - excellent actors 8 April 2008
By Scott
Format:DVD
I'm a Lovefilm member, so I get to watch plenty of movies per month. I didn't really intend to watch Disturbia, because it sounded, well, 'disturbing', however, I also don't like missing out on new releases so I gave it a go. Boy, am I glad I did. Disturbia is one of the most entertaining films I've seen in a long time. Despite the somewhat gruesome title, Disturbia is a comedy that follows a teenager's (Shia LeBeouf) house arrest and his growing obsession with watching his neighbours' actions day in day out. He's completely taken in by two of them: the girl that has moved in next door and the middle-aged man across the street, who just behaves like he has something to hide.
Shia LeBeouf is an excellent actor. He can play anything from funny to scared. He has this natural charm and ability to keep the viewer engaged and kept us laughing throughout the movie. Disturbia is definitely one watchable film and is a perfect example that an action/comedy/thriller doesn't have to have a huge amount of blood, cut-off limbs and your usual screaming teenage group to become a cult classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a "punt" 9 Feb 2008
By DKRG1
Format:DVD
I didn't now if i would like this film as i am a fan of Rear Window, it's not as good as Rear window but as a modern day verison it comes a close second.It's high paced, and Shia LaBeouf is great in it. Well worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment! 23 Jan 2008
By Sue Lewendon VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I watched this last night with my daughter and it was the first thing on my mind when I woke up. I kept wondering about things in a good way.

It tells the story of Kale, (played excellently by Shia La Beouf), who whilst driving home from a fishing trip with his father, has a head on collision with another vehicle. The crash in itself is worth seeing! Anyway, the father dies and we catch up to Kale a year later asleep in Spanish class while his best friend Ronnie is being the class clown. The teacher wakes up Kale and to cut a long story short, he makes a remark to Kale that has him lashing out at the teacher and giving him a black eye.

Kale is placed under house arrest rather than going to jouvie and he has to stay so for 90 days. His mother, (Carrie Ann Moss), is at the end of her tether with him and closes down his i-tunes and x-box and cuts the cord on his bedroom tv. She leaves him instructions to clean up his room and the kitchen. But Kale has found something much more interesting to do.

He has new neighbours move in next door and they have a great looking teenage daughter. Kale begins a ritual of watching her swim in the pool, do yoga and other stuff and he's quite content. Ronnie comes over and is equally impressed but accidentally lets the girl know that they're watching her. The girl, (Ashley), comes to the door and demands to know what they've been doing.

The boys quickly concoct a story about the neighbour next door being a serial killer. (Kale had watched a news report of a missing girl who was last seen getting into a blue 60 mustang which had a dent on one side.) This said neighbour owned such a car and had aroused his suspicions. So the three of them decide to do a stakeout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great teenage thriller film 4 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
I saw this film and I loved it - Shia LaBeouf is hysterical and David Morse is intense and chilling at times as the antagonist psycho killer next door.
It is a very formulaeic film but the formula has worked for years and it still works a treat.
A rollercoaster of events unfold at the hands of LaBeouf that make for an intense end sequence that wraps up the story.
I highly recommend this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rear Window for the 21st century 6 July 2009
Format:DVD
There is no shying away from the fact that this film is first and foremost Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window for the modern era. All of the Hitchcockian elements that made the original film so popular are all here including when the main character sends a friend in to explore the neighbour's house while he is away and the classic moment when the spied on becomes aware of his privacy being invaded and looks directly at the spy and us as an audience. The film does not attempt to hide its homage to Hitchcock but it is its modern edge that makes it retain a unique appeal. Jimmy Stewart's camera and binoculars are shoved into nostalgia by Shia Labeouf's modern equipment, including cameras, computers, televisions and phones. At one point he is able to get a live feed of his suspicious neighbour shovel shopping via the internet and his friend's phone. Fans of Hitchcock (like myself) may be cynical of the film for 'stealing' the tone of Rear Window but there is still lots of newer elements to be found in this film. An adolescent twist sees Shia Labeouf's character on house arrest, filling his time with spying on his neighbours and the attractive girl next door. Humour also plays a large part in the film. One particularly funny moment sees him blast an old soul song from his hifi atop his roof in an attempt to gatecrash his love interest's party. The film keeps a nice balance between, shocks, tension and humour and although many of the scare techniques are unashamedly borrowed; in the same way that a period war film creates discussion about today's society, this film (among other broader issues) explores the utilisation of technology in a world undergoing 'a heightened state of paranoia.' Well worth a watch.
