I believe going in on this one blind made the difference because if I had read anything about it I may have been mislead. If you like murder mysteries this one is for you. I'm not going to give away the plot, that's already been done in other reviews. I will just say this is a fresh look and twist on the cat and mouse murder mystery that is worth seeing. Thoroughly enjoyable! Highly recommended.
The first time I watched this film, I thought it was a little disjointed and left the motives of some of the key players rather poorly explained. But when I viewed it through a second time, giving it my full attention, I saw that there was both rhyme and reason to this suspense drama, and that it was actually closely plotted.
There's a singularly gruesome, memorable murder that takes place here. At the end, it's easy to overlook the fact that the case might not really be closed - that at least one of the characters faces a further hazard. And therein hangs a tail...
Spencer (Scott Speedman) is a large blond confined to a wheel chair. We later find out he was married and his wife died in the same wreak that confined him to said chair. He is considered a hunk by the older women in the building and they suspect that he and Louise would one day get together. He loves fish (live or cooked). He has anger management issues which sometimes slip out. While he is in a wheel chair, his legs are normal as there appears to be no reason for him to be in the wheel chair.
Victor (Jay Baruchel) is the new guy in the building. He is a bit spastic and is irritating with his constant chatter. He develops a love for Emily which is not returned.
There is a serial killer in the city and Louise is obsessed with the thought as her friend at the cafe was a recent victim. The victim had a date that night with a large blond guy named "Roland." A large guy named "Roland" is also conducting the investigation. The French Canadian woman who lives in the building is shown in a bad light and provides some inner conflict.
As events unfolded and made the characters more interesting and improbable, I found myself still waiting for things to happen.Read more ›
Spencer is charming, smooth and outrageously handsome, but there is something incredibly menacing in his smile and his playful cruelty from the start. (The scene where he "romances" Louise's co-worker from the Chinese restaurant is blood-curdling.) Victor, a nerdy and sweet newcomer to the apartment building, is clumsily gallant and lives in his delusional desire; Louise is quirky yet deadpan and afectless except when it comes to loving felines, but cold-blooded and willing to go a long, long way to get what she wants. And then there's the awful and hilarious alcoholic neighbor who hates all people and cats and who spouts obscenities non-stop, two cops tracking the serial killer, and two kindly middle-aged women who haven't got a clue about what's going on.
The normal and the abnormal are so seamlessly woven together in this movie that I was somewhat left with my jaw dropping: I really loved the way it creates a hero and a heroine while at the same time it tends to blur the line between what makes a sexually sadistic serial killer different from...everyone else... It's a very funny, chilling, creepy movie; I loved its intelligence.

I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. I thought each of the three main characters was the killer at one point, so that kept me attentive to the story line. Read morePublished 5 months ago by samiam
