I think “The Roommate” technically qualifies as a horror movie, though I doubt if you’ll be grabbing onto your theater seat armrests while watching it. Of course, if you’re watching it with a gal, you can use that as an excuse to grab her arm, but then she might think you’re a wimp and look at you with disdain, or scream rape. Either/or, the outcome is usually not so hot for the rest of the night.
Anyways, here’s a new clip from the movie, showing off Leighton Meester’s crazy stalker character as she does crazy and stalker-ish things at a gas station. Haven’t seen a lot of advertising for the film yet, but I’m guessing it’ll be all over MTV and the CW by next week ahead of its opening day.
Starring Alyson Michalka, Leighton Meester, Cam Gigandet, Minka Kelly, Matt Lanter, Danneel Harris, Billy Zane, Katerina Graham, Frances Fisher, Lauren Storm, and directed by Christian E. Christiansen, whose name makes me think he’s some kind of fancy-schmancy art-teese or some such.
