GOOD NEIGHBORS On Demand
By Amy Slotnick

 

A serial killer in the city and a new neighbor in the building initiate the plot of thriller , GOOD NEIGHBORS. Set in Montreal in 1995, the film is lackluster and feels predictable; nevertheless it is semi entertaining.

 



Victor (Jay Baruchel) is new in town and moves into an old, French-style walk up apartment building, living directly above neighbors Louise (Emily Hampshire), a quirky waitress with too many cats, and Spencer (Scott Speedman), a wheel chair bound widower with a mischievous smile. The three apartments are connected by an exterior fire escape, adding an architectural spookiness as well as an alternate exit that is worked in nicely with the story’s plot.

 


Louise and Spencer are obsessed with the recent news stories about a serial killer who has murdered and raped several young women in the area, including a waitress from the restaurant where Louise works. Victor befriends them both and begins to walk Louise home at night, to prevent her from becoming another victim of the killer. For Victor though it is also a way to get closer to Louise with whom he has fallen almost suspiciously in love.
