CINEMA OF DOOM: Next Door (2005)

Next Door is a profoundly unsettling Norwegian flick that takes place inside of two apartments and the hallway between them. The protagonist, John, is down in the dumps because his girlfriend has left him. Two women who live next door need his help moving something in their apartment. They’re attractive in a trashy, Eastern European sort of way, and immediately there’s sexual tension, but also a sinister undercurrent we don’t fully grasp. The weirdness escalates quickly, and before we know it, we’re completely immersed in sadism, confusion and madness.

It’s claustrophobic. It’s violent.  And if it doesn’t give you the heebie-jeebies, I can’t imagine what would. Just the thing if you’re in the mood for a tight, suspenseful little gem that’ll crawl under your skin and itch.
