Just got back from screening “Disturbia,” a great and very creepy thriller.
Yes, it’s a rip-off of (and not nearly as good as) Alfred Hitchcock’s classic, “Rear Window.” But this one updates the Hitchcockian thriller for the 2000s with the technology we all have for spying and documenting it, today. And instead of adults, like Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, “Disturbia” features teens.
Stay tuned for my full review when the movie opens in two weeks. Although I hate to promote an Abu Schlemielberg film, this one is very good. Visit Disturbia’s website.
