The Tenant

Released - 1976
Genre - Horror, Thriller
Director - Roman Polanski
Starring - Roman Polanski, Isabelle Adjani, Melvyn Douglas, Jo Van Fleet

The Tenant is a fantastic paranoid delusion of a film. A Roman Polanski production in every sense this is a slowly building and genuinely chilling film which creates an almost unbearable feeling of tension. Polanski plays Trelkovsky, a timid Polish file clerk living in Paris. We join him in his search for an apartment as he arrives at an ugly old building. This film made me feel very unsettled and genuinely freaked in a way rarely achieved by movies. This is a raw and intense experience a nightmare journey into the unconscious. No need for terrifying scaly things with sharp claws here the real horror is all psychological; the thin line between reality and madness.
