As the old saying goes, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. I’m talking about the apartment in the movie, not the, uh, movie. Anyways, Hilary Swank’s “The Resident” has gotten itself a trailer, and you can sort of see why the film, despite boasting an Oscar winner in the lead and a blowing up actor in Jeffrey Dean Morgan, isn’t generating a whole lot of buzz. It looks and feels, well, generic. Anyways, check out the trailer and judge for yourself.
Juliet (Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby), a beautiful doctor, has found the perfect New York apartment to start a new life after separating from her husband. It’s got spacious rooms, a spectacular view, and a handy, handsome landlord. But there are secrets behind every wall and terror in every room as Juliet gets the unnerving feeling that she is not alone. She is being watched. She is being stalked. And no one is safe when she discovers the relentless horror on her doorstep. But how do you stop an evil that you can’t see…until it’s too late? Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey’s Anatomy) and screen legend Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings) costar in this pulse-pounding shocker from famed horror studio Hammer Films (Let Me In).
Starring Hillary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christopher Lee, Lee Pace and directed by Antti J. Jokinen.
