Fast becoming one of Hollywood's hottest properties (A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Bobby and Transformers, as well as the upcoming new Indiana Jones movie), Shia LaBeouf now tries his hand at horror in Disturbia, released on DVD on January 21st from Paramount.
Loosely based on the Hitchcock classic Rear Window, Disturbia is a solid thriller with great performances all round. Read our review of the film from it's screening at FrightFest 2007 here.
Shia plays frustrated teenager Kale Brecht, whose boredom leads to voyeuristic games and brings his worst nightmares to life.
Under house arrest for punching a teacher who made an insensitive remark about his dead father and with mother Julie, played by Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), working long hours, Kale passes the time spying on neighbours through binoculars.
It brings the beautiful Ashley, played by Sarah Roemer (Asylum), into his life, but when pointed in the direction of Robert Turner’s house, Kale’s binoculars reveal a far more sinister neighbour.
The teenagers become convinced that Turner, played by David Morse (The Green Mile), is a serial killer and soon become entangled in a spying game which escalates into something far worse.
Being trapped in a house where the hunter becomes the hunted leads Kale to a hellish scenario. Dramatic performances by LaBeouf, Roemer and the spine-tingling Morse produce a memorable thriller in the best Hitchcock tradition available on DVD (£19.99) and HD DVD (£24.99) on January 21st 2008.
