A little nasty and extreme low budget creeper. This movie is brutal. Loads of disgusting bloody torture, I don't get how this didn't receive an NC-17 rating. Maybe it did originally I just didn't do research on it's MPAA ratings. But other than it's gruesome gory violence there's not much else. It brings nothing new to the table. If you were to take out all the gore scenes this would be a lame movie. Not the worst but just pretty boring. I do give it respect for having the balls to go as far as they did and still manage to make it look good. Great, good old fashioned latex gore! Descent but highly forgettable movie. Avoid the R rating and rent the UNRATED. I don't know the differences between the two, but shit, why rent the R rating and watch something that's just going to be watered down. This movie puts most mainstream "torture porn" (I know - I hate that fucking label to) to shame! Descent film. I just wish it was more fun and a little less sadistic, which would be fine and everything (the sadistic part), but like I said...only if it was a little more fun. Give it a go though...if you can stomach this kind of stuff.

I had high hopes for this one but it wasn't to be. I was worried as soon as it started and my concerns were warranted. The gore effects were pretty good but that's about it. After seeing America Olivo in Bitch Slap I thought she might be able to pull it off. Granted that all she had to do in that movie was act pissed off all the time I still thought she had an interesting look to her. Here she's a total nutjob. She's just not convincing at all in her role. Hopefully she can find something in the future that will challenge her to do more. A total disappointment.

Neighbor, from Robert A. Masciantonio, excels on too few levels to be successful.The film runs under 90 minutes, but with a paper thin plot it doesn't feel that brief. The introduction serves as a good snare; however, there isn't much to gain after that. The story never goes anywhere interesting and aside from the lead, the character buildups lack any amusement, which ends up making them unlikable.So where does this film succeed? The savagery. The gore factor is extreme and the violence is merciless, while the makeup effects intensify everything even more. There is even a portion in the middle of the film where the story seems to wander aimlessly just to create moments for extra bloodshed.America Olivo is the only person worth noting. Her performance as the terrorizing antagonist is gratifying. She pulls off the crazy without going annoyingly bonkers. It's just too bad she finds herself in this movie. Everyone else in the film is completely forgettable.Neighbor succeeds when it comes to straight up violence. As a recommendable film, it fails. "You're fired!"
