Disturbia

Every killer lives next door to someone


Disturbia
An update of Alfred Hitchcock's ''Rear Window'' for today's teen generation. A troubled teen punches a teacher, and gets house arrest for his effort. Confined to his home, he spies on his sexy neighbour, until he sees a blood-spattered body bag at another neighbour's house. This demands further investigation, but he's housebound while the body count mounts...

104 minutes.
