Good Neighbors Betrays Its Canadian Roots By Omitting A “U”

Here’s a trailer for the Canadian-made thriller Good Neighbors, which, although being set in Montreal, uses the American spelling of “neighbours”. It’s directed by Jacob Tierney, whose previous film, The Trotsky, also starred Jay Baruchel. Here’s a plot synopsis:

Set in 1995 in the dead of winter, a serial killer is on the loose in the Montreal neighborhood of Notre Dame de Grace. The tenants of an old apartment house must figure out who they can trust and who they can’t…

Sadly, I don’t think Good Neighbors looks particularly good. It doesn’t look particularly bad, either, just…well, kinda generic. Still, I have to give the filmmakers credit for not making the identity of the killer predictable from the trailer. Jay Baruchel would be the obvious pick, but Scott Speedman’s character can walk, apparently, which is awfully suspicious. Who do you think it is? And, more importantly, do you care?

Good Neighbors comes out July 29, 2011, but it will be available on VOD on June 24, 2011.
