Familiar horror story, but well executed - The Resident review by NP

Spoiler Alert
17/04/2021

You’ve probably seen film like this before; I know I have. However, if you’re in the mood for a haunted house-type horror, we could both do a lot worse!

The acting is excellent, the scares are carefully piled up, the characters are flawed but appealing – even the caterwauling child is a genuine cutie. When the relationship deteriorates between the couple, it’s actually effective because as the audience, we are made to care about them both. Tianna Nori and Mark Matechuk are believable as Joanna and Jeff, both imperfect, but both likeable. There’s not a bad performance on show, but this story certainly belongs to the couple.

Possibly as the end credits roll, you’ll be struck how this fails to break any new ground, but events are unravelled so expertly, you’ll have enjoyed the ride anyway. My score is 8 out of 10.
