Critic Reviews for 388 Arletta Avenue

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Reel Film Reviews

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.

Audience Reviews for 388 Arletta Avenue

Good concept for a movie just way to predictable for an ending. This film could have been a lot better.

realistic, yet pretty dull and boring at times, the whole computer thing got a little to repetitive to me. didn't really enjoy it, but the acting was pretty decent.

Paul Atkinson
Paul Atkinson

A stylish and well-made found footage serial killer film, 388 Arletta Avenue mixes Michael Haneke's masterful film Cache together with the older found footage stalker film Alone With Her. Despite being well made, 388 Arletta Avenue never achieves the heights of either film. Engaging throughout, it never manages to be creepy and just ultimately fizzles out.
