Swedish Hitchcock knock-off very much in the vein of Rear Window. I was with it for the most part although this did more to solidify my love for Golden Slumber than anything else because this movie was so heavy-handed in its "influence" whereas Gold Slumber adopted the familiar Hitchcock territory of an innocent man framed but absorbed that inspiration and digested it into its own completely unique tone. Corridor stuck pretty close to the formula that Hitchcock did better.
Still, it's a decent movie and I was entertained. I remember sitting next to Karrie League and we got to the one point where the movie lost me - the protagonist is so freaked out with his paranoid fear that when he hears someone walking in the apartment that he's broken into, he blindly thrusts with his knife or screwdriver or whatever and runs and *shock* it turns out that he inadvertantly mortally wounded an innocent - we looked at each other and shook our heads. That was a nice little moment... not for the movie but for my festival experience.
