Buy it... if you have a high tolerance for challengingly manipulated and unpleasant exhibitions of sound design in your film music, especially if they utilize noises so awkwardly weird at times that they give you the giggles.

Avoid it... if you have no wish to embrace arguably John Ottman's worst career score to this point, an unfortunately lifeless accompaniment to the extreme sexual depravity that may have kept this movie out of American cinemas.

Ottman
Ottman
The Resident: (John Ottman) Depraved sex acts in low budget horror movies are nothing new, but the debut of Antti Jokinen in the director's chair for 2011's The Resident seems like the thriller outline that holds the movie together was simply an excuse for showing plenty of naked rubbing, consensual and non-consensual sex, voyeurism, finger sucking, roofies in use, and, most excessively, male masturbation on women's clothing. Nobody should be really be surprised that this, part of the newest resurrection of Hammer Films Productions for the 21st Century, has plenty of cheap scares and fleshy misbehavior in its contents, but what does baffle the mind is the involvement of Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank in the lead role. Granted, new Hammer folks pledged to spend $50 million on a new line of horror movies a few years prior, and a paycheck is a paycheck, but what exactly possesses Swank when she periodically takes these awful fright-fest roles? In The Resident, she plays a successful New York surgeon who is lured into buying an apartment that is actually a peep show construct for its landlord. After the surgeon first leads on the landlord and screws the seemingly confused man, she decides to reconcile with her former lover and screw him instead. That latter development doesn't go over well with the landlord, who not only watches all of these events through secret passageways, but regularly enters her apartment to evacuate his testicle sack on her clothes or hide under bed and moisten her fingers while she slumbers. Eventually, he kills the other lover and sedates and rapes the woman (all on video surveillance, of course), but despite her many mistakes in life, she earns salvation by discovering the landlord's secret perversions and taking a nail gun to the hapless chap. If that plot stirs your loins enough to pique your interest in The Resident, at least you'll encounter sci-fi/fantasy favorites Christopher Lee and Nana Visitor in supporting roles. The movie was so awful and sexually impure that it was released directly to DVD in America after initial hopes of a theatrical release (which inexplicably happened in Europe). While composer John Ottman was involved with some truly terrible horror films throughout the first two decades of his career, few, if any, are as embarrassing as The Resident, and one has to wonder why he was also tempted by this production for any artistic reason. The compensation couldn't have been that spectacular, especially after you listen to the results of his efforts. What you are reading represents the 31st review of an Ottman score at Filmtracks, and this is the first time he has receive only a single star for any one of his efforts.
