Product Overview

Even on this quiet tree-lined street, no one is safe...especially from the savage killer next door. Welcome to Disturbia, "a cool thriller with big scares" (Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper).

Living under three months' house arrest, Kale Brecht (Shia LaBeouf, Transformers) passes his days spying on the neighbors. It's all fun and games until things take a horrifying turn for the worse. Kale is convinced his neighbor next door is a serial killer - but he can't prove anything, can't convince anyone and can't leave his house without triggering an alarm. Enlisting the help of his friends, Kale is determined to expose the truth - but have they all taken on more than they bargained for with a cold-blooded murderer on the loose?

With nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, Kale and his friends are in a race for their lives in this electrifying thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Editors Note
Note Shia LaBeouf (CONSTANTINE, I, ROBOT) is a young talent to be reckoned with, as he demonstrates in this genre-spanning film from director D.J. Caruso. Part teenage romantic comedy, part horror flick, DISTURBIA stars LaBeouf as the troubled Kale, who is confined to his home under house arrest after he punches out his Spanish teacher in the middle of class. Kale's array of available diversions dwindle considerably after his mom (Carrie Ann Moss, MEMENTO) shuts off his X-Box and his i-Tunes, and he turns to voyeurism instead, carefully noting the daily activities of his neighbors. These include the swimming schedule of the hot girl who just moved in next door, Ashley (Sarah Roemer, THE GRUDGE 2), whom he ogles with his best friend, the class clown, Ronnie (Aaron Yoo, THE BEDFORD DIARIES). When Ashley unexpectedly shows up and wants to know what the boys are doing behind their binoculars, they concoct a story about their neighbor, Mr. Turner (David Morse, PROOF OF LIFE), and their suspicions that he is the serial killer currently on the loose. The teens' subsequent stakeout makes them increasingly convinced that this is in fact the case, and their creepy interactions with Turner bring them ever closer to learning the dark secret that lies inside his impenetrable suburban existence. Despite a slight identity crisis and distracting product placements, DISTURBIA is carried by the strong performance of its lead character, and manages to charm with its portrayal of young love.

Review "Disturbia is a nice little mystery thriller that takes a wrong turn on the way to its climax and morphs into a slasher movie. This abrupt change in tone is as jarring as it is unwelcome and transforms what could have been an effectively tense conclusion into something so over-the-top that it's almost laughable. During its best moments, Disturbia doesn't have the material to be memorable, but it is watchable and the subject matter holds an undeniable fascination...A comparison between Caruso and Hitchcock is obviously unfair - one is among the pantheon of film deities while the other has a few middling titles on his resume, but that's what happens when a director works in Rear Window territory. Disturbia is not a terrible movie. Even with the sordid ending, it holds the viewer's interest the way any competently made thriller can. There's a sense of potential squandered but maybe it takes a dumbed-down, amped-up approach to capture the attention of today's viewers."

Review "The parallels with Hitchcock's Rear Window and Brian De Palma's Body Double (not to mention lesser known variants on the genre such as Curtis Hanson's The Bedroom Window and John Carpenter's masterful Someone's Watching Me!) are obvious. They're also not comparisons that work to Disturbia's advantage, as director D.J. Caruso and his screenwriters both fail to go as deep as their influences and seriously botch a number of the devices that they steal...Nevertheless, Caruso is a skilled craftsman who knows how to stage and edit an action sequence--his movie may be impersonal, but it's never boring...Morse is chilling as LaBeouf's antagonist, while LaBeouf himself is simultaneously geeky and sexy in his star-making performance. He shares an easy rapport with love interest Roemer, and they, along with a slightly underused Carrie-Anne Moss, give the movie the soul that the screenplay lacks. The teen romance that in most movies of this sort would be perfunctory is, in Disturbia, a surprising strength."

Claudia Puig, USA Today ...a smart and well-acted teen thriller that serves up some lively scares.
David Edelstein, New York Magazine ...Caruso is a resourceful director is that he scares you silly with a minimum of violence and a few smears of blood.
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter There's plenty to ensure fresh jolts for viewers who know Hitch's tricks inside out...
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun The Breakfast Club meets Rear Window. The result should satisfy dating crowds from high school to night school.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Cool stuff. Cool movie.
