“The Resident” Moves In March 29th on Blu-ray

Here’s something right up my alley, and it features actors that I like.  Jefferey Dean Morgan, Hillary Swank, and Christopher Lee star in The Resident. Swank has landed the perfect job, the perfect place, and the promise of a new life.  Jefferey Dean Morgan is the landlord that oversees Swank’s new digs.  Terror and suspense are hidden in every room of this new home.  Will evil prevail?  The Resident will be released on Blu-ray and DVD March 29th.

Chatsworth, CA – The perfect job. The perfect apartment. A new, hopeful life. What – or who – can stand in the way? On March 29, Image Entertainment and Exclusive Media Group’s Hammer Films will release The Resident, the story of a woman whose new lodgings provide a blueprint for fear and secrets reside behind every wall. This taut thriller, balancing between nightmarish suspicions and unnerving realities will be available for an SRP of $27.97 for the DVD and $29.97 for the Blu-ray™.

Dr. Juliet Dermer (Academy Award™-winner Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby) has recently separated from her husband. Having found the ideal New York apartment, she is ready to start a new life and embrace her new freedom. The new accommodations come with spacious rooms, a spectacular view, and a helpful & handsome landlord (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Watchmen, “Grey’s Anatomy”).

Yet, each room houses a promise of terror as Juliet gets the unnerving feeling that she is not alone. She feels that she is being watched…that a stalker lurks behind those spectacular views. Juliet fears that pure evil is waiting at her own doorstep…

Directed by Antti Jokinen and co-starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, P.S. I Love You), Lee Pace, (A Single Man, The Good Shepherd) and Hammer screen legend Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Star Wars Episodes II and III), The Resident is a tense and terrifying shocker, a story of being in danger where we should feel safest …our own home.
