Average at best,
This review is from: The Resident [DVD] (DVD)
I approached The Resident completely unsure what to expect, I didn't have high hopes but wanted to give it a go. I must also mention that I held no store by the Hammer label because they are not going to be producing the same sort of films this time around.
The characters had potential, and the relationship that developed between the two main characters was quite engaging at first, however it was not amazing by any standards. I kept looking at certain elements of the plot and finding them to be unbelievable, disappointing, or just a little silly. I don't want to give away the plot, but suffice it to say the blurb on the back of the box is fairly inaccurate in giving you the impression that the main cause of this woman's problems is that she fails to change the lock on her door. That, in my opinion, would have been a better film.
The ending is where I really fell out with this film, as it becomes simply ludicrous, with the bad guy becoming an almost Jason Vorhees style character (he just keeps getting up!).
I would say rent this film, or watch it on T.V but don't waste your money as it is not rewatchable!
