Paul’s review of The Good Neighbor

The Good Neighbor stars James Caan as Harold Grainey a reclusive old man whose teenage neighbours decide to conduct a study on him to see how he will react if he thinks his house is haunted. The film was released on September 16th 2016 and is rated R/15.

Logan Miller and Keir Gilchrist are Ethan and Shaun the two high school students who set up spy cameras and other devices to watch and control devices within Grainey’s house. They monitor and record it all from Ethan’s house across the street. However, what starts out as a prank soon leads to a devastating tragedy due to a series of weird coincidences.

When I started to watch I thought I had picked another rubbish movie, but this was soon dismissed as I became enthralled with what was happening. Miller and Gilchrist play their parts well, but James Caan definitely steals the show with his portrayal of a grumpy old man, and you will feel for him towards the end of the movie. Overall, I would have to rate this 5 out of 5.
