A clip for the upcoming horror/thriller The Good Neighbor, which previously had the title The Waiting, has been released and it shows Kiel Gilchrist (It Follows) telling his pal about a “messed up experiment” with a baby named “Little Albert”. The clip then intersperses footage of James Caan’s character doing menial tasks around his place. Pretty much the only thing creepy here is the slowly building ambient background noise.
However, can we talk about Gilchrist’s complete and utter lack of manners? Your friend’s mom(?) invites you over for dinner and you don’t say “thank you”? Then she puts food in front of you and you fail to say “thank you” yet again? How rude.
Trace caught the film at the Austin premiere, where he wrote in his review:
‘The Waiting’ is a very strong directorial debut for Farahani, and showcases strong performances throughout… [it] packs an emotional wallop of an ending that makes the slow pace of the film worthwhile.
“Mysterious events occur in The Good Neighbor when two high school filmmakers decide to create the illusion of a haunting on an unsuspecting neighbor. The fun begins as the duo’s suspicions grow and, as the tension mounts, they realize too late that the man they’re manipulating is the last person they should’ve chosen for their project.”
The Good Neighbor was written by Mark Bianculli and Jeff Richard. It comes to theaters and VOD/On Demand platforms on September 16, 2016.
The full cast includes: James Caan, Logan Miller, Keir Gilchrist, Laura Innes, Edwin Hodge, Bailey Noble, Lili Reinhart, Anne Dudek, Mindy Sterling, and Tamlyn Tomita.
