Disturbia is the
latest teen "thriller" movie to land on DVD which begins humbly as
the viewer observes a touching scene between a father and his son
that ends horribly in a dangerous car crash.
Fortunately for Kale
Brecht (Shia LaBeouf), he is the only survivor of the accident and
blames himself for the death of his father. As Kale's life changes
(for the worse), he soon becomes involved in a variety of delinquent
crimes and is sentenced to house arrest for three months.
In order to break
this boredom, Kale spends his time spying on his neighbours. Kale
soon believes or so he thinks a dark secret of one of his neighbours
and he enlists the aid of his friend Ronnie (Aaron Yoo) and the
attractive next door neighbour whom he has also been spying on
Ashley (Sarah Roemer) who attempt to unlock the secrets of Mr.
Disturbia is your
typical teen horror cliché that younger teen viewers will enjoy with
these angst ridden teenagers. This movie could almost be considered
"Rear Window" for teenagers but unfortunately fails to deliver the
true suspense that only Hitchcock could create. Definitely
recommended for the teenager or for those viewers that cannot watch
gory horror movies as Disturbia is quite light on this aspect.
