It's sort of a modern retelling of Hitchcock's Rear Window with Jimmy Stewart. Teenage Kale loses his father in a car accident and blames himself, he thus starts acting out in school and ends up punching his Spanish teacher in the nose. The judge puts him on house arrest for three months during the summer. Well, if you're cooped up you're going to go a little loopy. So he starts spying on the neighbors with his high-tech gear with his best friend and his the new girl from next door. Soon they suspect their other neighbor to be a serial killer and are trying to find the proof. But what happens when their neighbor finds out they know??
I loved this movie. Fun suspense and story. Enough things to make you jump out of your seat, which is great. If you enjoy a good suspense movie try this one out!
The film's translation in Russia is "Paranoia."
Disturbia was filmed on location in the cities of Whittier, California and Pasadena, California. The homes of Kale and Mr. Turner, which were supposed to be next door to each other, were actually located in two different cities.
Ronnie: Oh my god, you've made the tower of Twinkie! Is that in a stalker's handbook somewhere?
Kale: So now you got the whole jock and bimbo population showing up? That will be fun. I just didn't think you'd conform so fast.
This goes toward the Helluva Halloween and All Hallow's Eve Challenge.
