    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).

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Film You Want To Love.... March 20, 2011
    Format:DVD
    THE RESIDENT is one of those very well made (directed by Antii Jokinen), well photographed (cinematographer Guillermo Navarro), well scored (music by John Ottman), well cast films that just doesn't manage to get off the ground. The idea for the film is OK but the script written by Robert Orr and director Jokinen is so slim that the film could have been a successful short: everything you need to know is in the trailer. A thriller it is not, but the people in the film are so attractive that much is forgivable.

    Hard working ER Doctor/Surgeon Juliet Devereau (Hilary Swank - who also is executive producer here) is bruised by a broken relationship: Jack (Lee Pace, well remembered for his role in 'A Soldier's Girl') betrayed their relationship. Juliet needs a change and looks for an apartment in New York City, eventually finding an affordable gorgeous space being renovated by owner Max (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, handsome and charismatic). Max is strange but pleasant and goes out of his way to please Juliet. Max lives in the apartment house as does his grandfather August (Christopher Lee), and when the emotionally vulnerable Juliet is attracted to Max, Max is the one who shuts down. But the chemistry has begun and Max spies on Juliet, stalking her, making videos of her in bath, obsessing over her etc. Juliet meanwhile reconnects with Jack, a fact that motivates Max to change the direction of his approach to Juliet. What follows is a series of strange incidents that the audience will know about ahead of time and the ending just sort of happens - without much suspense or caring from the viewer.

    Swank is up to par in her professionalism and both Morgan and Pace are interesting to watch. The film has some nice effects and the cast is attractive and maybe that is enough for a no-brainer film. Pleasant but non-involving. Grady Harp, March 11

    1.0 out of 5 stars Let me do a favor and spoil this for you. May 14, 2011
    Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Normally I don't try to reveal spoilers on my book and DVD reviews but I owe a favor to anyone who might consider renting, buying or viewing this horrible piece of movie making (and calling it movie making is an exaggeration).
    Hilary Swank, an Oscar winning actress had taken quite a career tumble as she portrays an emergency room doctor seeking an apartment in NYC. She comes across a huge apartment at a bargain rate. (Warning one-If you get an amazing bargain in NYC, something bad is about to happen!)
    She rents the apartment from Jeffery Dean Morgan (who I wail always remember as "dead Denny" in Gray's Anatomy which spoiled that entire series for me forever) is the landlord and as the viewer finds out early in the movie he is a combination stalker/pervert/peeping tom/sex addict/psycho/killer who spends more time sneaking around Hilary's apartment than she does. He also has multiple viewing areas into the apartment which allow him to view Swank at his leisure. He can watch her as she bathes, cooks, sleeps and drinks. (which is part of her problem. ER doctors need to be careful about drinking too much)
    Christopher Lee is totally wasted in his role as the grandfather of Morgan who starts off as a spooky old man and ends up as a dead one.
    Lee Pace is Swank's ex boyfriend who manages to rekindle his romance with her and anyone who has ever seen a suspense cum horror film knows what happens to that kind of person. No surprise here.
    The last 20 minutes of this film is tediously filled with Swank taking down her landlord in a knock down drag out ridiculous physical battle and him rising again like Michael Myers in the Halloween films.

    3.0 out of 5 stars The Resident August 6, 2011
    Format:DVD
    Why is there a horse in the lead?(No Pun),makes for a good movie but we have seen these plots before,predictable and repetitive.Did I mention Hillary Swank?She leads on some guy in the movie,and turns out the guy is pretty demented,and of course by the cover you can tell what happens next.Christopher Lee is Great but The return of Hammer Films could have been better.

    2.0 out of 5 stars "A" ACTORS IN A "B" MOVIE April 24, 2011
    Format:DVD
    This is your classic "B" grade peeper movie with high priced actors. Hillary Swank plays an ER doctor looking for an apartment. She finds the idea place with a good looking landlord. The drawback is that Christopher Lee also lives there. The movie then shows you blurred views of Hillary naked from camera angles that make you think she is being watched. It also makes good use of shadows and noises to add to the effect that someone is in her apartment. Unfortunately this doesn't last long as the peeper/creeper is revealed way too soon, and it is not Eric Roberts. The movie short changes us on the nudity/sex scenes normally in a B grade movie and opts to give us some groping. They attempted to create a first class peeper film, but fell way short. I can't believe Hillary Swank isn't getting better movie offers.

    Reviving the legend of Hammer films certainly seemed like a great idea. Renowned for their creepiness and monster mayhem, Hammer was one of the most influential horror players in the film industry for approximately four decades (most relevantly, perhaps, in the fifties and sixties). Their 1958 version of "Dracula" with Christopher Lee is still considered by many to be the definitive film version of this oft told tale. Well, Hammer is back in the game! Their first release was the contemplative vampire remake "Let Me In," a terrific film that owes far more to its Swedish predecessor than to the mystique and allure of Hammer. Their follow-up film "The Resident," however, is pure Hammer--unfortunately, it's late period schlock as opposed to something that's going to reinvigorate the legend.

    Hilary Swank, with her two Oscars firmly in storage somewhere, plays a New York doctor seemingly defined by the male relationships in her life. After a difficult break-up, she does what any single lady would do--she rents a cavernously creepy new apartment and begins a tentative flirtation with her landlord (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). In a bit of casting fun, Lee is even on hand as Morgan's grandfather--but, in reality, he has very little to do. This is the type of film that is entirely reliant on the fact that someone could be four feet away from you in your creaky old flat and you wouldn't notice. You see, Swank is being watched and the unknown assailant has full access to her apartment. Amidst the copious scenes of peeping, (look, here's Swank bathing and here she is applying liberal amounts of lotion to her breasts--did I mention she had two Oscars) things start to progress to more intimate aggressions.
