Jay Baruchel Stars in Campy Canadian Thriller 'Good Neighbors' Trailer
"Should I be concerned for my safety?" Magnolia has debuted a trailer on Apple (embed via B-D) for the dramatic chiller/thriller Good Neighbors, set in Montreal, Canada about a "serial killer on the loose." The story focuses on neighbors in an apartment, played by Canadians Jay Baruchel, Emily Hampshire and Brit Scott Speedman, who don't know who's the killer or if they're being stalked or what. This wouldn't look that bad if it wasn't for the extremely cheesy voiceover and that terrible song at the end. Can anyone predict who the killer is just from watching this? I doubt I'll see it, but I still thought it was worth featuring.

Set in 1995 in the dead of winter, a serial killer is on the loose in the Montreal neighborhood of Notre Dame de Grace. The tenants of an old apartment house must figure out who they can trust and who they can't…
Good Neighbors was both written and directed by Quebecois actor-turned-filmmaker Jacob Tierney, who started out with a short and directed the films Twist and The Trotsky previously. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, though I didn't catch it there and didn't hear much buzz about it either. Magnolia Pictures is bringing Good Neighbors to limited theaters starting July 29th + VOD on June 24th.

The movie itself looks competent enough... but what a horrible trailer.

TMI. They always give away most of the story. How about a little bit of intrigue?

The movie is good, but the trailer is a bit weird. It's a bit on a Shallow Grave vibe, fairly twisted.

They're both the killer, they work together in order to throw everyone off.

I saw this movie at TIFF and loved it. The trailer is terribly put together and does not highlight, in any way the strength of the film, which is that it's a dark comedy. Jacob Tierney is a clever writer and offers something that is both disturbing and hilarious. I wish this movie a good career but with a trailer like this, I feel it won't get the exposure it much deserves.

Its all three of them! If its Baruchel then that's way to safe. If its Speedman its way to predictable...but if its Hampshire that would be pretty kewl.
