4.0 out of 5 stars Very suspenseful! A good thriller with a lot of comedy, 1 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Disturbia [DVD] (DVD)
'Disturbia' (2007) had been sitting in my pile of unwatched DVDs for almost two years, last night I decided to give it a go and was very impressed.

A thoroughly modern, fast-paced (although much character development) thriller with plenty of twists and turns and soaked in suspense. 'Disturbia' is loosely based on the Alfred Hitchcock classic 'Rear Window' (1954). People will argue that this film isn't even in the same league (and as a big film buff, I would have to agree with them), but it's still a great little movie in it's own right and kept me engrossed from beginning to end. Very few modern thrillers have me genuinely on the edge of my seat like this one.

Unlike a lot of recent thrillers, this one doesn't rely on excessive blood and gore to be frightening. Instead, it uses plenty of mood and suspense, which usually does work better in my opinion, certainly in this case. The plot is serious and the film is full of genuine tension but despite this, there are plenty of real comedy moments from the start that made me laugh. This film will definitely appeal to teenagers, there is plenty of teen comedy and romance between the lead character and the new girl next door, all of this only adds to the many positives that this movie has. It would be difficult for me to pick out just one or even two stand-out actors in this film out as the performances from everyone are very good.

After attacking his school teacher, teenager Kale Brecht (Shia LaBeouf) has been living under three months' house arrest and is now passing his days by spying on his neighbours. It isn't long before Kale becomes convinced that his next door neighbour Mr. Turner (played by David Morse who is eerily convincing) is a serial killer and with the help of his best friend, he sets out to find the proof.

'Disturbia' was a refreshing film and one that I could certainly watch again. It has all the elements of a good thriller. Give it a go!
