| The Super: Passable horror/thriller
Val Kilmer, Patrick "The 4400" John Fleuger and the excellent Louisa "Jane Wants A Boyfriend" Krause lead in this novel little thriller that is worth 90 minutes of your attention.

It tells the story of a former police officer who takes a job as maintenance worker within an apartment building. He moves in with his two daughters but quickly begins to have suspicions about the mysterious janitor.

The Super's plot is pretty standard stuff with two twists, one of which you'll see coming within the first few minutes of the film. The cast are great, do a brilliant job and the whole thing looks polished.

Arguably more a thriller than a horror it didn't blow me away in any regard but I can't deny that I did walk away relatively entertained. It's one of those passable movies throughout with a payoff that is satisfactory but just barely.

Likeable Louisa Krause really helped the movie for me and alongside Val Kilmer (Who is back on form) it's the cast that really lift the movie to an above average level.

A harmless 90 minutes of viewing.

The Good:

Some great cinematography

Solid cast

Kilmer is better than he has been in years

The Bad:

Doesn't flow very well

Finale is somewhat eyebrow raising
