A psychological thriller that is combined with a brilliant mix of humor and suspense sure to keep viewers quessing until the very end.

Dove Review

Recovering from a recent car accident Jason begins to watch his neighbors in the apartment building next to his. He is lonely and has no life of is own. His approach to the window is not an act of voyeurism, but of curiosity to see what is going on in the outside world. While watching the windows he becomes a witness to physical abuse between a husband and wife. After a night of fighting and the wife comes up missing Jason assumes the worse.

I have not scene the original by Alfred Hitchcock but the story line was great and kept me on the edge of my seat. It was interesting to see how Jason was able to do so much as a quadriplegic. The relationship between Jason and his talented co-worker is heartwarming and genuine. It gives the movie a romantic edge and a surprising twist as they watch the window together. We gladly award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie.
