Movie Review: Disturbia

Release Date: April 17, 2007

Director: D.J. Caruso

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!

Interesting Trivia:

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.

Memorable Quotes:

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.


  1. We have had this in my house since it came out, and I still haven't watched it. I don't know why. I really should watch it, it's the perfect season for it.

  2. I loved this movie! I like all Shia's movies, he's great. :)

  3. Awesome movie! I don't really like scary/suspense movies (I'm a scaredy cat!), but I loved this one! =)

  4. i like this one too.

    Hey, you asked me a question on my blog and I want to answer but I cant find a way to email you.

    If you would like to know the answer email me at khal5671 AT

  5. Haven't watch this movie, but it really sounds interesting to watch! Very different from my taste, but that's a good thing :) LOL

  6. This movie was a lot better than I thought I'd be. Very Hitchcook like. It didn't disappoint.

  7. The film was good, but I kept thinking that the new girl's family was going to be the murderous ones, and not the creepy older neighbor. Shia did a great job with this one.

  8. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.



Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
