they Must be difficult to describe all the degree of frustration that I got after watching this film. But trying — no harm, so I would try.

To view this film, I began with great interest. Nevertheless, the description of the plot persistently argued that not quite banal Hollywood Thriller, but in the cast was listed actors whose work I'm drawn. And it was obvious pluses of the film for me.

Thus, the beginning of the film. Provincial girl Sara comes in College, settling in the Dorm, met with a new neighbor in the room, and roommate is with different. Rebecca begins openly to ruin the lives of people around Sarah and so on. And that's all. Yes, there were several fascinating story elements but plot literally ended. The denouement became known, and any lost interest.

In my opinion, the blame for a spoiled movie will remain on the writers. Intriguingly, the ability to start and failure to complete — that will be able to describe the creators of the film. The story was completely opened.

a Few words about the actors.

minka Kelly played unconvincing and awkward. It was absolutely boring to watch its like called game. The Director openly made the right decision with the actress for the main role.

Leighton Meester. don't been to sure that she can handle for his role. But she did, and quite well. I believed her, believed her eyes, her words. Applause, Leighton!

To the end is not understand what was the role of the Nina Dobrev. Her Mary appeared just in one stage and limited to only one phrase, and more about her remembered. A similar situation occurred and with Katerina Graham. The creators of the film I wanted to be promoted at the expense of the Actresses of the popular TV series "the vampire Diaries"? It is quite possible.

Any sense of this film does not made or what not thinking, just spending on it evening weekend. It is not something I waited.

This film has caused me mixed feelings.

On the one hand this film attracts, with other than very  & catchy.

The idea itself is very interesting and the cast is pleasing to the eye. Music, atmosphere is good too.

But the main disadvantage in that it made too easy for Thriller. No that voltage, which would feel watching this film. For a very long time is a development and all that here to start already though it but no. I didn't like the slow love songs.

Loved the game Leighton Meester. I have been seems like it sounded good accustomed to the role. It facial expressions and manic concern is the only this film, that I was excited and scared.

Not quite clear what I wanted Rebecca. It to be the only person in the life of Sarah, or not become it.

You can watch a movie, but it is interesting only once.

On the basis of the extensive information, which we are supplied to the view through the trailer, synopsis and everything else, including the striking slogan on the topic of "what kind of eight million neighbors will receive you" — had a sense of preparing for, albeit not the original, but to the extent of bloody and macabre genre Thriller. After all, a dangerous woman in anger, and even more if present her obvious mental deviations. And although the plot is utterly beaten, and definition, involves another collection of Hollywood cliches — still there was hope that will manage to tickle your nerves, not straining your brain.

In fact it was much more depressing. After a brisk start of the picture, where us hastily acquainted with the protagonists, the plot abruptly hits the brakes, and the rest of the film is actually fairly sluggish. Some events happen, but only for the main storyline they are, in a have a relationship. A lot of unnecessary dialogue; studying, hanging out and walks city — sometimes it seems that watching some of the youth series about a student life in California. So that, fans of the genre "youth Thriller" is likely to be disappointed already in the first half hour, so as this time, a single drop of blood we will show only when Rebecca pierces his ear lobe. To the way, the rating of PG-13 — not an accident; tickle is unlikely to succeed. No blood, no tension, no intrigue. And not even expect an unexpected ending that could it all offset — the film is absolutely linear from beginning all can end only in a certain way.

The theme of obsession, albeit not the original, but is always relevant. So well as and themes of social adaptation and mental rules. Have mental disorders there is always a reason. However, here we are not show. How is it that girl be secured and, on first glance, prosperous family was so detached from reality? The main problem with these sick people in that they genuinely believe in that there have been absolutely correct. These people need a timely psychological assistance. From the film shows that the parents of Rebecca still tried to help, but apparently not too hard.

Despite that as a Thriller this film is of itself of no value is, it could to catch, if the story of Rebecca's opened in fully we'd not only the monster, but and man, and we learned the origins of the tragedy; that it happened led to such as. But it is not. Innuendo and conventions too much.
