I remember renting this having heard nothing about it, falling for it then forcing all my friends to watch it because it was that universally good. It's about three people who share a flat together that need a new roommate. It's a pretty dark comedy in many ways and it's pretty comical watching them go through possible roommates. Then they find the right one (with a suitcase), and he locks himself in and three days later curiosity leads them to break into his room. From there saying anything else would probably ruin the film but rest assured it's not only funny but very dark and the ending is awesome! It should satisfy no matter what you are looking for, even the horror elements are perfect. The cast is interesting the story is too and really I can't find a bad thing to say about it. One very cool movie that you are missing out on, that is if you haven't seen it yet!
