Viewer Rating:Lorraine has rated Disturbia rating: 3 Star

In Disturbia 17-year-old Kale (Transformers' Shia LaBeouf) is sentenced to three months under house arrest for punching a teacher. Out of sheer boredom he begins spying on the inhabitants of his neighbourhood and comes to suspect that one of his neighbours, Mr. Turner, (played by the suitably menacing David Morse), is a serial killer who preys on young women. Soon Kale, his friend Ronnie (Aaron Yoo), and his flirtatious next-door neighbour Ashley (Sarah Roemer) are watching and recording Turner's every move in an attempt to prove his guilt. The film clearly borrows heavily from Hitchcock's Rear Window and also American Beauty to an extent, but obvious plagiarism aside it is an entertaining thriller with plenty of humour and genuinely creepy moments.
