I've always seen this as an updated version of 'Rear Window'. We've got a kid on house arrest instead of a man in a wheelchair, but the rest pretty much lines up.

Fright Night


The current remake of ^the above title. I haven't seen it yet, but it looks to be about the same story.

A take on the 'creepy neighbor' story in which said neighbor is a werewolf who wants to jump your bones. Pulls a lot from the 'Fright Night' storyline-still quite entertaining.

Can I say this is the original? It's the first I ever saw in this category. James Stewart is wheelchair-bound and thinks he sees a murder take place across the street. Was it just his cooped-up mind playing tricks on him, or is there really a killer next door? Great film.

Talk about crazy neighbors. This movie always makes me laugh and it has Corey Feldman.

I'm not a Woody Allen fan, but I caught this one late at night and figured I would fall right to sleep watching it. It has that did he or didn't he mystery quality about it, and it kept me guessing although that is not too difficult.
