Neighbor Pains

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Dutch director Pal Sletaune (Junk Mail) returns with this bizarre head-scratcher, about a young man, John (Kristoffer Joner) who discovers two sexy "sisters" (Cecilie A. Mosli and Julia Schacht) living next door. His girlfriend has just left for another man, and there's evidence that John may have abused her. Worse, one of the new girls begins to play into his abuse fantasies, and then the lines between reality, horror and fantasy really begin to get muddled. Shot mainly in interiors, Sletaune succeeds in suggesting a correlation between the twisty corridors and creepy rooms and the characters' fragile psyche. TLA Releasing's DVD comes with a making-of featurette and interviews.
