Storyline Heading

Widowed when his FBI agent wife is killed by a right-wing group, college professor Faraday becomes obsessed with the culture of these groups-especially when his new neighbors, the all-American Langs, start acting suspiciously. To get to the truth, Faraday must delve into the disturbing world of these ordinary people living right next door. With each twist the mystery deepens and the question looms-is Faraday just consumed by fear and driven by paranoia, or has a lethal conspiracy been born on Arlington Road?

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - Generally a slow-paced film with only a few scene of action and suspense. It should appeal more to those who enjoy psychological thrillers and don't require a lot of constant action. You should also be willing to accept dozens of absurd contrivances and coincidences. As for the ending, it's one you will either love or hate. If you like twisted surprise endings, then you will probably enjoy this movie. If you like the more traditional endings, then you could be somewhat disappointed.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
ARLINGTON ROAD is a badly constructed motion picture. The screenplay stretches the viewer's credulity far beyond the breaking point, asking us to accept dozens of absurd contrivances and coincidences. The more you think about it, the less sense ARLINGTON ROAD makes. Yet, despite the plodding, predictable way in which the plot develops, ARLINGTON ROAD is not without a kernel of originality. The ending, which is by far the most noteworthy aspect of the entire picture, defies expectations and accomplishes the difficult task of surprising the viewer. However, its numerous weaknesses drag it down to the level of just another "psycho murderer on the loose" story. Given a chance, take a detour around ARLINGTON ROAD.
