With the announcement of the line-up for the 2013 FrightFest Halloween All-nighter, I thought it was about time there was…
The quieter the street, the darker the secrets....
Kale is a 17-year-old placed under house arrest after punching his teacher. He is confined to his house, and decides to use his free time spying on his neighbors. Things start to get weird when guests enter the Turner's house and don't come back out. Kale and his friends, Ronnie and Ashley, start to grow more and more interested in what is actually happening within the house of Robert Turner.
Disturbia is like somebody's younger brother who nobody likes because he's not as cool as the older brother but still manages to have at least one friend who would play with him from time to time.
Rear Window is that older brother.
I'll be your friend Disturbia!
"Disturbia" es una de las peliculas de la cual tengo muchas cosas buenas que decir, cuando la vi por primera vez la cual fue por casualidad la pelicula estuvo en lo mas alto de mis favoritas por un muy largo tiempo.
No se puede negar los errores en su direccion de escenografia y fotografia, pero sinceramente es una pelicula que me atrapo que a pesar de no ser la mejor ni mucho menos perfecta tiene algo que fue lo que me atrapo, con una muy buena actuacion de Shia LaBeouf.
Maneja el suspenso y la intriga no a la perfeccion pero si de una manera que te mantiene entretenido y concentrado en todo lo que esta sucediendo, el director tambien cumple con el hacer que uno como espectador le agarre cariño a los personajes.
Se que ya lo dije pero la pelicula a pesar de no ser excelente es de mi total agrado.
The Beef didn't annoy me as much as his usual self would do, and the what's-her-face-girl was hawt!
The film suffers from the occasional slowness and boredom factors. But overall an entertaining watch.
Basically a modern day version of the Hitchcock classic Rear Window. So imagine my surprise when Disturbia turned out to be pretty decent. It's tense and intriguing though having seen Rear Window the ending was predictable.
The biggest problem is the opening, it is very slow with it basically being a teen rom-com for the first 40 minutes. After this however it opens up and becomes far more enjoyable. Shia LaBeouf is pretty good as well. Well worth a watch.
Bad. Don't watch.
If Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window was a living thing, then its shit would be called Disturbia.
This is a decent though not great or even very good modern update of Rear Window, which is, of course, a much better film. That having been said, the suspense does exist in this film enough to give you a bit of a scare at times.
If Michael Bay re-made Rear window.
'Disturbia' follows the story of the troubled 17 year old Kale (Shia LaBeouf) who has been placed under house arrest after punching his Spanish teacher. As a way to cure to his boredom, Kale spends a lot of time in his bedroom with a pair of binoculars spying on his neighbours and their activities.
But when Kale sees a woman go into the house of his neighbour Robert Turner (David Morse) and doesn't come out, Kale starts to become concerned. Was his mind playing tricks on him? Or is something very wrong?
With the assistance of his two friends and the use of video cameras, phones and his computer all set up in his bedroom, Kale tries to find out…
Not Rear Window, but not Transformers either.
Disturbia is the type of film that, while you watch it, makes you feel like the only world that exists is the small neighborhood in which it takes place. This does not leave you feeling trapped, but rather, allows the movie to play with absurd possibilities without seeming ridiculous. My only complaint is there are some flaws in the continuity of the script. For instance, there's a house party going on, and then, while Shia Labeouf is being chased by a murderer about twenty minutes later, everyone is just gone. Overall an enjoyable movie.
I saw this when a was high, and this is the most unbelievable movie I've ever seen in my entire life.
Cornell Woolrich escribió un cuento que sirvió de base para "La ventana indiscreta".
Sus herederos pusieron un pleito por plagio a los responsables de "Disturbia".
Un juez no les dio la razón.
La película bastante entretenida, eso sí.
