  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Kale (LaBeouf) is having a tough time lately. His father has died in a tragic accident, his mom is working extra hours to pay the bills, and he is having trouble at school. As a result of his trouble at school, he is placed under house arrest, ankle bracelet and all. Whilst serving time homebound in the suburbs, Kale begins to notice a suspicious neighbor. Convinced this neighbor is a homicidal maniac, Kale and his friend Ashley (Roemer) investigate this stranger living in their midst. Is the oddly behaved man next door trying to change this lovely suburbia into Disturbia, or has Kale

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing image with deep blacks and well-rendered fleshtones. Details are captured well, even in the darkest portions of the screen where the subtle gradations near black are still noticeable. Edge enhancement is not much of a problem, but edges can look slightly too digital and pixel breakup, while not often noticeable, can be seen at times. (Danny Richelieu)
