Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The visuals in Randall Cole's paranoia chiller 388 Arletta Avenue evoke Michael Haneke's Cache and Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window in the way they make domesticity seem terrifying.
Fresh: 388 Arletta Avenue manages to use the terrorized-couple genre to provide a timely commentary on supposedly safe homes and distant wars.
Rotten: There's little new: the intimidation techniques (pet abduction, home invasion) feel cliched and the film trundles towards an unenlightening conclusion.
Rotten: Cole's film serves as a reminder to go back and watch the superior works it lifts from.
I have never given newer horror/thriller film 5 stars because I feel it has to be something ultra special to justify this kind of rating and this one was exactly that. This was one of the most cleverly written and directed films I have seen in a good year or so. Moment to moment, edge of your seat tension, excellent pacing, extremely realistic in most all aspects, although I feel more family members might have been involved had this happened for real but all in all a terrific thriller that really keeps you glued to it. Crazy props to this director and lead actor. Not many movies can tell a story through a series of static cameras and this did just that. I found it a little far fetched that he was able to get so many cameras so well placed but let's let this be a movie and we all know that things need to be stretched a bit to really make the directors point. Simply awesome! Worth every bit of the rental and purchase price. Watch it!
OMG!!! I can't believe i just wasted my precious time and money. This movie is not worth renting
There are no words to describe this movie other than a waste of time and money. It's not even a thriller- It's just plain awful.
