Watch: James Caan Gets Haunted in First 'The Good Neighbor' Trailer
"Be careful how far we push this guy…" Vertical Entertainment has released a trailer for the thriller The Good Neighbor, from director Kasra Farahani, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival this year. James Caan stars as a grumpy old man living next door to some teenagers who attempt to pull a trick on him and make him believe his house is haunted. They setup cameras and try to capture it all on video, but end up seeing "much more than they bargained for." Logan Miller and Keir Gilchrist stars as the kids who try to pull this off. I'm intrigued by the concept for this, it looks fun but also freaky, and of course the discovery of what's really going on better be good. Caan looks like he'll be intense to watch. Fire it up below.
Here's the first official trailer for Kasra Farahani's The Good Neighbor, direct from YouTube:
In The Good Neighbor, a pair of mischievous high school kids (Keir Gilchrist and Logan Miller) create the illusion of a haunting on an unsuspecting neighbor (James Caan). While keeping his every reaction under surveillance, they see much more than they bargained for. The Good Neighbor (or The Waiting) is directed by concept artist-turned-director Kasra Farahani, making his feature directorial debut after a few shorts previously; he also directed a film called Tilt still waiting to be released. The script is by Mark Bianculli and Jeff Richard. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Vertical Entertainment will release The Good Neighbor in select theaters + on VOD starting September 16th this fall. Who's curious?

This looks good. Has the potential to reinvorgrate Caan's movie career...he used to be a major star back in the day, kids!

The gravity of each of Caan's words is terrifying. He is one of the few actors in Hollywood who can pull off the subdued tone of the Golden Age.

Looks very good. Along the same home invasion horror lines of 'Don't Breathe'. Now wish that I'd seen this at SXSW.

The kids are annoying little shits.

Just like mentioned 'Don't Breathe' this also tackles with idiotic and narrowed perspective of young ones. The premise says: if he's old he also must be creepy and therefore he deserves to be harassed in some way. It will be interesting what will come out of this idea but I have no big expectations since under-intelligent youth is the main target of film producers ...
