NEIGHBOR (2010) ONE TOP HAT

NEIGHBOR1

This movie was terrible in ALL aspects but one – the cinematography was pretty good. The premise to this looked pretty cool, so I got excited about a new slasher franchise.  But – sadly – this thing was a complete fucking FAIL. The actors were all terrible, the dialogue was awful, the plot was stupid and the non-linear aspect of the story was useless and off putting. What a terrible hunk of shit.

NEIGHBOR2

The DVD cover released here has a scantily clad woman that I am not even 100% sure is the main character (she looks like it could be) on the front and the back offering what alludes to being less clad and maybe even offering up some spice in the movie. This was not the case. This thing probably could have used some spice from the lead actress (America Olivio) since her facial expressions, gestures and all around presence made my life miserable. (Note – I’ve seen her in about four movies {I think} and she’s a terrible actress IMO who probably needs to go off showing her huge cans to keep getting work but she never does… Until MANIAC – finally!) But – if there was anything to say good about this would be the end credits and the camera work. If you are into a TON of useless gore and carnage, this has that too, but I am not certain why.

NEIGHBOR3

The synopsis: a comely looking woman breaks in to people’s houses (which are all manners of expensive on the inside and “grungy” on the outside) then tortures and kills them.  Why? No one knows. Is it entertaining? Nope. Do you like any of the characters? Fuck no. Does it make any goddamn sense? Not a bit.  Was it worth four bucks? Never. Is it worth 86 minutes of your life? Maybe, if you were in prison.

NEIGHBOR4

This sucked some serious balls. And not in a good way!!

Here’s something funny about this experience. While the last 30 minutes played out I read all sorts of posts about this abomination on IMDB. Apparently, as evidenced by his user name, the “Writer/Director” spends a lot of time on the message board defending the movie, himself and ridiculing people like me who hated it. Douche.

        Dude, I just watched the trailer on IMDB! Wow that looked bad! lol.

        How did you sit thru this? You actually paid for this? You may be better suited to just stick to the horror selections on netflix instant b/c at least you don’t pay $4-7 per crappy movie! Instead you pay $8 a month and get all the crappy movies you want! lol.

        This Neighbor movie looked atrocious; it’s definitely shitfest material for sure!

        LOL. Yeah, I try to do that, as well, but I stick with netflix instant, and I generally turn off the bad ones after a few minutes, and don’t mention them…

        Like yesterday I turned off “Chain Letter” after a few minutes. I could just tell it was going to be lame, so saved myself an hour. I have about 10 other horror movies at the top of my queue I need to try – but b/c it’s hard to find a good one it’s hard for me to stay motivated and hit play. I’m just always hoping for that next one that jumps out and surprises me like “The Hidden Face” and “Home Sweet Home”. Hopefully a couple of these atop of my queue will be good enough for me to report back to you and Tyson.

        Sounds good amigo!! I don’t mind sitting through the bad ones – that way I can come out here and warn people to avoid them like you would a wasp…

        (Look for thoughts on some good ones to wind down the week)

        (Still waiting for Inside to arrive – I can’t watch things on that link you sent me where I do most of my watching – DVD is best)

        Yes, I agree DVD is best! You’re in for an experience with “Inside”. 🙂

        I’m working on a new page to add to my blog with netflix instant recommendations – so you can check some of those out when you’re not taking taking hits for the team watching Jug Face and Neighbor. lol.

        You might not believe this but On Sunday I had some time to kill and I wanted to look at a page exactly like that on your site. In the end I ended up watching a movie called A Haunting at Sliver Falls – which was…. OK.

        lol. ok, add “In Their Sleep” to your queue. I think you’ll dig it. I would have told you last week but I knew you were watching some other ones, and were planning to watch “Inside” soon, as well.

        On another note, I just saw that this “Neighbor” movie was only $1.99 to rent on Amazon Instant Video; so you may want to compare prices when you’re about to DL from i-tunes; these two sites vary b/c some movies are cheaper on i-tunes and then others cheaper on AIV. Just something to keep in mind…

        Thanks for the tip!

        There was a video store in the mall that closed and before they shut their doors I went in and bought a bunch of their DVDs for pennies (like this one). After I get done with things like this I bundle them up and give them to my neighbor who sends them to her son serving in the Army over in the Middle East. I’m sure they don’t love them but it gives them something to do…

        Oh, my bad – for some reason I thought you mentioned paying $4 to rent this; maybe you mentioned that on another post and all your entries are running together in my brain. lol.

        Hey if you paid a penny for that movie and that dude closed down his business you need to track him down and demand your penny back!! lol.

    see, that’s why you’re awesome….you’re always there to ‘take one for the team’ and endure the crap movie so we don’t have to.

  2. Yeah, that shit looks TERRIBLE. Unless she spends the entirety of the Special Features apologizing while naked, think I’ll give it a miss. We the readers appreciate you tossing yourself on that bad movie grenade!
