The National

The usually strong actors are adrift without a decent script or story, resulting in a film that doesn't live up to the legendary name of the studio

Fan The Fire

The Resident fails to scare or entertain, and giving Christopher Lee the slightest of roles merely draws attention to how far short it falls short of its studio's heritage.

Swank has the wherewithal to make a panting madman reach for his tape and handcuffs.

Glenn Lovell

... takes primal fear of home invasion to the next level. As in "Crawlspace," you can't lock out the threat because it's inside, and it knows the floor plan better than you.

Reel Film Reviews

...a low-rent, hopelessly by-the-numbers thriller that is way, way beneath the talents of its Oscar winning star.

Brent Simon
Screen International

Devoid of any believable motivations, Hilary Swank's The Resident trots out gender-based clichés of fear, resulting in a goosing stalker thriller that adds nothing new to the single-woman-in-peril subgenre.

Isn't exactly groundbreaking stuff, but if you're looking for Friday night thrills, The Resident should do the job.

Philip French

It's a conventional thriller, short on originality and red herrings but atmospherically lit by Guillermo Navarro, who won an Oscar for his cinematography on Pan's Labyrinth.

No inventive kills or outlandish gore to compensate for the absence of tension.

The film would have benefited from a higher body count ...

It's a Hammer horror all right, but not in a good way.

Swank works hard but the Oscar-winner must wonder what she was doing in this hokum.

Perhaps, with more suggestion to allow the viewer's mind to wander, the film could have outsmarted others in the genre, rather than resorting to type in places.

It's unconvincing, daft and gratuitous but not exactly dull.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

It's the kind of exercise in mildly salacious voyeurism that has been attempted many times before, in movies such as Sliver and Hider In The House. This is the least thrilling version yet.

Generic and intermittently silly...

So shockingly bad, it is really, extraordinarily good.

Navarro keeps you amused, but actual scares (let alone surprises) are in short supply.

Alan Jones
Radio Times

Finnish music video director Antti J Jokinen ... overdoes the shadowy film noir style, while skimping on everything else from believable motivation to standard genre theatrics.
