Icon Home Entertainment is pleased to announce the 4th July 2011 Blu-ray & DVD release of terrifying psychological thriller, The Resident, starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank (Boys Don't Cry, Million Dollar Baby) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey's Anatomy, Watchmen).

The Resident also marks Christopher Lee's return to the Hammer franchise after a 34 year absence. The film, theatre and television veteran, who was recently honored with the BAFTA Academy Fellowship award for outstanding contribution to film, has starred in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith. He is best known to millions of horror fans for his famous roles in the film classics Dracula, The Mummy and The Wicker Man.

The story of The Resident was inspired by the fact that every year, very many single women move into apartments for the first time. They do not know who lived in the apartment before them; they do not know their landlords, and they don't bother to change the locks. This is the story of one such woman...

Hilary Swank plays Dr. Juliet Devereau, a young, newly-single Emergency Room surgeon. After separating from her long term partner, Juliet feels vulnerable, but strives to appear confident. Her first task between hospital shifts is to find a new apartment within her limited budget.

After days of fruitless apartment-hunting, Juliet stops in front of a substantial period building, its front door slightly ajar and on the ground a handwritten notice "6th Floor Apartment For Rent". Climbing the impressive circular staircase to the apartment, Juliet encounters an attractive young man, Max (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) sanding the classic wooden floors.

The apartment is everything Juliet could have ever dreamed of - high ceilings, lots of rooms and a view to die for. Max tells her the rental charge, which is well within her budget, and she happily takes the apartment on the spot, not quite believing her good luck.

Max is a shy, but handsome man, who appears to be the perfect landlord, helping Juliet to move her sparse belongings into the apartment. The only other tenant in the building is Max's frail grandfather, August (played by Christopher Lee), who lives down the hall from Juliet. Over the weeks, mysterious occurrences spook Juliet and lead her to the conclusion that she is not alone in her apartment - There are odd shadows and noises she cannot identify. Over time, she puts these thoughts aside, deciding it is just part of the course of living alone in a new place.

Unknown to her however, there is a warren of secret passages behind her apartment walls, created by her landlord, not only allowing Max to spy on Juliet, but giving him the ability to enter her apartment at any time. Max's growing fixation with Juliet makes him dangerously uncontrolled and increasingly impulsive in his desire to observe her every move.
