Across the Hall DVD Review

Across the Hall DVD Review

You can own this DVD today!

Synopsis: In this tense, stylish noir thriller, Terry (Danny Pino, TV's Cold Case) follows his fiancee, June (Brittany Murphy, The Ramen Girl, 8 Mile), to a seedy hotel where she's meeting another man. Drunk and distraught, Terry calls best friend Julian (Mike Vogel, Cloverfield) and reveals that he's holed up across the hall from the lovers with a stolen gun and murder on his mind. A chilling cat-and-mouse game ensues, forcing Julian to risk his own life to keep his friend from doing the unthinkable.

Review: This is one of those cool films that follows the lives of various people throughout the course of one evening.  The setting is a retro hotel in New York City.  The movie is riddled with betrayl, love and suspicion.  Brittany Murphy looks great in this noir-themed piece.  She does a great job of playing a woman caught in the middle of all the insanity and is definately the highlight of the film.

I'm kinda starting to think that Image Entertainment is cursed! lol.  This is the second celebrity facing death issues from an Image release in the past week....the other one being the suicide attempt from comedian Artie Lange.  This time, unfortunately, fate won out and the beautiful and talented Brittany Murphy passed away at a very young age.  Our condolances to her family and husband.

In all seriousness, you need to pick this film up.  Its one of the best 'under the radar' films we've seen in the past year.  We highly recommend it.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
