We’ve been excited for quite some time about a movie almost nobody has heard of – Disturbia. Having enjoyed the chain of Shakespeare teen movie adaptations, I’ve always believed that Hitchcock was the next logical step. Well now a trailer has finally hit the web, and I’m kind of worried.
Click here to check out the Trailer.
Disturbia is a contemporary teen thriller remade from Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window. In the original 1954 Hitchcock film, a wheelchair bound photographer who is confined to his apartment spies on his neighbors and becomes convinced that one of them has committed murder. DJ Caruso’s (Taking Lives, Two for the Money) involves a troubled kid (Shia LaBeouf) who is sentenced to house arrest. While spying on his suburban neighbors, he begins to suspect that his neighbor is a serial killer. Carrie-Anne Moss plays his mother.
The trailer, which can be watched in full quicktime at Apple.com, doesn’t quite deliver on the high concept promises of the idea itself. Let’s hope the movie doesn’t screw it up.
Disturbia hits theaters on April 13th 2007.
