One Hour Photo: Directed by Mark Romanek. With Robin Williams, Connie Nielsen, Michael Vartan, Dylan Smith. A mentally unstable photo developer targets an upper middle-class family after his obsession with them becomes more sick and disturbing than any of them could imagine.
We skipped a couple films from Robin to get to this creepy one in which a man has made connections to a family, only the family doesn’t know that he’s so engrained in their lives. The photo processing itself is a concept that works for this film, but the industry has nearly completely moved over to digital photography now and i can’t remember the last time that I even saw a physical photo much less needed to get a roll of pictures developed. This is the type of horror story that’s horrific because there’s no super natural or impossible things going on, but instead it’s a story that could happen to any one at any time.
