Movie Info

May star Angela Bettis trades places with that film's director Lucky McKee for this tale of a lonely recluse who finds his obsession with a beautiful girl taking a dark turn after coming face to face with the unsuspecting object of his affections. Roman (McKee) is a quiet soul whose only escape from the tedium of life and the torment inflicted upon him by his co-workers is basking in the ethereal beauty of the elusive girl who resides next door (Kristen Bell). During a chance encounter with the fragile girl, Roman's intense desperation leads him to commit a transgression that opens the floodgates of madness and deranged fantasy. As Roman's cold reality gradually begins to melt into a grisly puddle of dripping insanity, an eccentric neighbor (Nectar Rose) stealthily begins to ingratiate herself into his increasingly unhinged world.

Audience Reviews for Roman

½

Written by Lucky McKee (May, The Woods, All Cheerleaders Die) as a pseudo follow up to "May", "Roman" is a somewhat sweet and creepy romance story between a killer and his next door neighbor. While the film most likely would have benefited from a larger budget and different casting, Angela Bettis' direction mostly works, especially considering the ultra low-level nature of the film. Some acting and pacing issues will put off a large chunk of viewers, but for those that can look past such things there is an interesting movie to be seen.

Angela Bettis directs her May Director in a reversal of roles, with Lucky McKee playing an awkward loner as she did in the other film, and the results are a lot more average for whatever reason. I mean, maybe we're all a bit more familiar/accustomed to strange guys getting creepily attached to women who want nothing to do with them, but this just felt kinda boring and by the numbers. Rental?

An eerie, Creepy, Disturbing, Interesting, Creative, Sadistic horror flick...although it did get a little boring at times. Still a good flick though.
