I was lucky to be invited to a pre-screening of Disturbia by Ster Kinekor this evening. I took my good friend Tim along and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the pace of the movie and it kept me on the edge of my seat.
To be honest I hadn’t read much about the movie and I don’t think I would have watched it unless there was nothing else on the big screen that I hadn’t already seen. The cast was a bunch of unknowns to me so that wasn’t even a draw card. I am just not normally keen to watch thriller or horror movies as they usually involve lots of blood and guts.
I won’t give away the plot but I will say that Disturbia was at least original with an ingenious mix of thrills, suspense, comedy and touch of romance binding it all together. I highly recommend it. It comes out on the South African movie circuit this Friday, the 21st of September 2007.
