In this fresh, subversive take on the found-footage horror genre from the makers of SPLICE and CUBE, a faceless voyeur's twisted manipulation of a young couple escalates into a deadly cat-and-mouse game, as seen from the perspective of hidden cameras he's concealed throughout their house.

388 Arletta Avenue manages to use the terrorized-couple genre to provide a timely commentary on supposedly safe homes and distant wars.
The visuals in Randall Cole's paranoia chiller 388 Arletta Avenue evoke Michael Haneke's Caché and Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window in the way they make domesticity seem terrifying.
There's little new: the intimidation techniques (pet abduction, home invasion) feel clichéd and the film trundles towards an unenlightening conclusion.
A particularly egregious offender in a shaky-camera era that is the cinematic equivalent of a multi-year plague of locusts.
The aim is to give us the stalker's view and, most of the time, it works.
