Going into this film I was expecting a serious horror film or thriller.
On the other hand, the film might be a mixture of genres. Sometimes the
film feels like a comedy, sometimes like a drama, and sometimes like a
psycho thriller. In the case of Roommate Wanted you have a better than
expected film that is a lot of genres in one big blender.
The film can be best described as a dramedy about mismatched roommates who hate each other. You might be thinking to yourself that this does not sound like horror and you would be partly correct. However, when the film goes to the extreme it gets EXTREME. The film benefits from strong performances and from the fact that although it is a small movie, it looks great. The performances are really good. Honestly, the performances are the best part of the film. Alexa Vega is more than just a pretty face. She is talented, tough, a good actress, and I wish we could see her in more films. I also thought how even though there are only two real main characters, you can connect to them both. Meaning you can relate to both Alexa Vega's character and Spencer Grammar's character.
What I didn't like about the film is the writing is a little off. Meaning, the script feels like there are parts that drag, feel like filler, and at times doesn't know what it wants to be.
So these are my final B*tchin' Buddha thoughts on Roommate Wanted (2015). It is a film you are going to like, or a film you are going to hate. I honestly do not see too many people loving this, but I do see someone liking this. If you are looking for a simply minded horror, thriller, comedy, whatever it is. I think you will be pleased. I believe this film earns a
6 out of 10.
