ACADEMY AWARD®-WINNER HILARY SWANK STARS
IN A STORY OF UNEXPECTED TERROR AND AN UNINVITED GUEST
Moving in on DVD and Blu-ray™ March 29
Dr. Juliet Dermer (Academy Award™-winner Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby) has recently separated from her husband. Having found the ideal New York apartment, she is ready to start a new life and embrace her new freedom. The new accommodations come with spacious rooms, a spectacular view, and a helpful & handsome landlord (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Watchmen, “Grey’s Anatomy”).
Yet, each room houses a promise of terror as Juliet gets the unnerving feeling that she is not alone. She feels that she is being watched…that a stalker lurks behind those spectacular views. Juliet fears that pure evil is waiting at her own doorstep…
Directed by Antti Jokinen and co-starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, P.S. I Love You), Lee Pace, (A Single Man, The Good Shepherd) and Hammer screen legend Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Star Wars Episodes II and III), The Resident is a tense and terrifying shocker, a story of being in danger where we should feel safest …our own home.

About Hammer Films
Hammer was launched in 1934 and delivered a hugely successful run of films throughout the 1950’s including Gothic classics Dracula and The Curse of Frankenstein as well as sci-fi picture The Quatermass Xperiment. This output gave Hammer a legendary reputation which lead the studio to become branded worldwide as “Hammer House of Horror”. In the 1960’s Hammer struck distribution deals with Universal, Warner Brothers, Fox and Columbia. This enabled Hammer to produce another huge catalogue of films including, The Plague of the Zombies, The Nanny, Quatermass and the Pit, The Devil Rides Outand One Million Years B.C.
Hammer is now a London based production subsidiary of Exclusive Media Group (Exclusive) who are working to aggressively reinvigorate the brand, which has not been in production since the 1980’s, through new investment in the development and production of film, television and digital-platform content. As a result Hammer’s return has been heralded by the release of Let Me In, its first film in over 30 years. Let Me In is an adaptation of the highly acclaimed Swedish film, Lat den Ratte Komma In, a.k.a. Let the Right One In, written and directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and starring Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), now out in the US, France, Australia, Spain and will be released in the UK (5 Nov).
