- UK / US
- Directed by: Antti Jokinen
- Cast: Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christopher Lee
Swank finds a suspiciously empty gothic apartment in Brooklyn, but her seemingly jovial landlord (Morgan) is soon recast as an obsessive psycho voyeur. Some moments jump from creepy to comical, while Lee gives The Resident some continuity with Hammer films of old he's criminally underused. It's not a complete disaster, the home invasion theme is still unnerving, Swank and Morgan are both solid and the final act is stupidly entertaining.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

The Resident – Film review16 Mar 2011
Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christopher Lee star in the latest thriller from Hammer studio
It’s certainly fantastic seeing the legend ‘Hammer Film Productions’ on the big screen again (especially when it’s followed by the name ‘Christopher Lee’) however this thriller goes more for the chills of The Nanny or Fear in the Night than the Draculas…
