The Sentinel

A young Model named Alison Parker moves into a Brooklyn heights apartment. Her main reason for moving into the apartment was because her boyfriend at the time Michael, was pressuring her to move in with him, but she said that she wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment yet. With being a busy model and all, and all of the pressure to be in front of the camera twenty four seven, things felt like they were getting out of hand. As she falls in love with her new apartment fast, she slowly meets the other renters in the complex and she begins to rethink her first impression of the apartment, and also starts feeling uneasy about the other renters. From a creepy old man lurking within the shadows of her apartment as she tries to sleep, to an extremely overly sexual lesbian couple, and a strange man who makes himself at home. Throughout this film there are many surprises and “classic” scares. Michael Winner creates a world that will scare you into never renting another place without thinking twice.
