ABOUT
Recuperating from a broken leg, a news photographer spends his days cooped up in his New York apartment, watching his neighbours through the rear window of his home. The intense summer heat wave, a growing addiction to his painkillers, and the kind of delirium brought on by boredom and lack of sleep leads him to create fanciful stories about those he spies on, but when the line between truth and reality begins to blur, he finds himself questioning whether he has just witnessed a brutal murder, or whether his demons have finally gotten the best of him.

 

Based on the short story It Had To Be Murder by Cornell Woolrich, the same tale that inspired the 1954 Hitchcock film, Rear Window (James Stewart, Grace Kelly), The Rear Window takes a new look at this classic tale of a "peeping Tom" who saw more than he wanted to see. A gripping, psychological thriller that will leave you guessing until the final moments whether or not what we're seeing can truly be believed.
