The Roommate Movie Premiere

The Roommate, now what comes to mind when you see these 2 words? Throughout my college and uni days, I don't have the luxury to have a room to myself, so there's always a roommate sharing a room with me. The first thing that comes to my mind was roommates, how exciting can that be? Not when your roommate's someone who is seriously obsessed with you, and is willing to go to extreme measures to stalk and have you to him or herself!

The Roommate 2011

Think along those lines and you have the plot for this new movie to hit our cinemas "The Roommate". I was fortunate enough to obtain 2 invites from Eli for this premiere screening by Nuffnang held at GSC 1 Utama. As usual, reached earlier to have a nice dinner with the gang before heading off to collect the movie tickets at 8pm. The show started at 9pm.

Coming back to the movie, The Roommate stars Minka Kelly (Sara Matthews) as this college girl who just entered this new college apartment and Leighton Meester (Rebecca) as her new roommate. Both are really hot ladies I might add.The movie is very simple, really. Here's how it goes, new roommate comes in, new roommate obsessed with Sara, hurts and kills Sara's close friends, Sara finds out, Sara gets scared, Sara fights back with boyfriend Cam Gigandet (Stephen).

Somehow I find the movie really very predictable, with an expected finale. Come on, if I knew what was going to happen, why would I pay good money to watch it. The movie sort of redeems itself by the sound effects and scare tactics to make the audience jump every now and then. My only thoughts after the movie was, if the 2 main actresses weren't hot, I wonder if the movie would still be watchable. Anyway check out the trailer and a few photos from the movie below.

BFFs forever?
Still BFFs, notice the freaky stare from the roommate on the left.
See the stare again! Kind of scary I tell you.
