"When i first read about this film i must say i was a bit weary about renting it as it seemingly was from one of these new "extreme" companys that produce so many films a month that all are poorly made, edited and just in general are stupid much like The tattoo artist, Sublime, and bascialy anything "dimension extreme" has to produce Unless you care for very poor special effects and nudity that is placed in the film just because it can be done. But i digress, 100 feet tells the story of a woman recently opted for house arrest from prison after the gruesome murder/ self defense act against her husband, a well known and liked police officer, whos former partner just so happens to be the officer in charge of watching after her during her sentence. While she is free from the prison bars, she quickly learns her own home is becoming a prison itself, as neighbors whom she once chatted with now turn away from the "murderer" and children are told to stay away from her house altogether even on halloween during trick or treating ( a rather sad scene itself there) as well as the realization that despite the fact her husband has passed on, his angry and vengeful spirit has decided to extract his final revenge in the one place she cant leave, the place she should feel comfort in her own home. While the special effects arent over the top for the husband, i will say they are remeniscent of the effects in Hollow man, the actress does a trully great job at portraying a broken woman trying to find peace for herself in the mortal world and justice for herself in the spirit world"
Michael Pare IS NOT Patrick Swayze in "GHOST" !

"Starring : Famke Janssen,Bobby Cannavale,Michael Pare and John Fallon.
Written & Directed by : Eric Red.
This was a good and scary movie.
I think premise was original and perhaps contrived in certain scenes,'But I ain't Mad at it !'
The special effects were ghoulish and perfect for a Halloween-timed release.
Cast was perfect in their roles, John Fallon surprised in a early cameo important to plot.
Cant guess at specifics for Theasylum being able to release this "A" picture,At least is a `B+',Ha.
There is even a `Roman Polanski' moment with Famke and underage boy having wild sex.
Others have hated ending,We liked."
Don't Pay Any Mind To The Bad Review Above

"First I give this movie 3 and a half stars, and second I half to defend some of the absurd statements the other reviewer made. This guy blames a character for not telling anyone one her dead husband has come back from the grave to severely beat, and haunt her. No one would believe her at all. His critazitsm makes no sense. She behaves in a very rational manor. Only two people vist her on a regular basis. A young boy she wants to have sex with, and a police detective. If she tells the boy, he will think she's crazy, and never come back. If she tell the detective, he will have her thrown back in jail, or put in an institution. Keeping her under house arrest is a very clever idea. Eric Red is a very under rated director that should be making many more movies than he does. So many were great little B movies that have gone unnoticed by most people, and this is no exception. It's scary, well acted, and well directed. I'm not sayin this is the greatest thing to happen to horror, but it's so much better than all those PG-13 affairs we get. If your a horror fan, or you just want something scary to watch for Halloween, then see this movie! And check out some of Eric Red's other movies as well. There all good fun."
