A lady advertises for someone to share expenses in her apartment, and that's when a possessive man shows up to not only claim the living quarters, but the woman herself. It's a decent premise downgraded by uneven performances and roughness of the script. I couldn't believe a woman could just disappear and no one notice. And no one heard the man making the room soundproof so she couldn't scream? And no one at least saw him taking all those materials up there? This story might have been a bit more convincing if it was in a house or a cottage, but not an apartment where at least one person is going to notice some strange happenings.

Only giving this movie 3 stars, since there are too many "hidden" scenes. It's funny how all of a sudden a soundproff room appears out of the blue, and her furniture just vanishes. Despite all of that, some scenes were hair-raising. Could be a good companion to "Single White Female".

Providing you do not place a premium on originality this movie will pass muster as an adequate if modest psycho on the loose picture.

The protagonist is a young medical student ,Marti ,winningly played by Justine Bateman .She has recently divorced the up and coming hot shot lawyer ,Jordan ,and is struggling to make ends meet while pursuing her studies .She agrees to take in a room-mate ,an outwardly charming young man but in reality a person with multiple problems .His idea of a realtionship with a woman is to exercise total control and he sets out to win Marti over and then to take over her life completely .He does not scruple to kill in pursuit of his desires and by the time she realises what she is dealing with Marti is a prisoner in her own apartment and totally dependent on her gaoler

Within its modest limits this is a serviceable picture and while it does not come anywhere near to being among the best of its type there are many worse ways to spend 90 minutes or so being decently acted and well paced

After reading the other review for this movie i would have to agree that it's a little unrealistic...but that's what makes the movie so much fun! And the guy that plays the killer is gorgeous!! Actually, i was switching around the stations on TV and only started watching the movie because of how cute he is...So, maybe the acting and plot aren't that great, but have you seen Center Stage? The only reason people watch that is for the cute guy...and let me tell you, this guy is a hottie.
