Decent entry, if not overly unspectacular

Moving to a new house in the country, a teen finds that his classmates squeaky-clean image comes from their involvement in a mad doctor's series of mind-control experiments and when he learns his friends are next sets out to stop them before his family and others fall to the change.

This here wasn't that bad but had some good parts to it. One of the best parts is that the film is quite creepy in places, mainly due to the fact that it keeps the mystery rightly unknown until the end. By keeping it that way, there's a good build as it throws the different actions which come about that works wonderfully in here, making the revelation feel special with all the attention towards it. That is a fantastic advantage, as the different methods used to show how the change has taken place from the stoic expressions and vicious gangland beatdowns on anyone to the outbursts of violence that on anyone that goes against their programmed guides to life as these little bits of evidence make it clear something has happened, and it gives a certain amount of atmosphere to the proceedings. The film is really good once it gets to the psychiatric hospital, which is creepy, unsettling and remains a highlight. The last plus here is the film's action-packed ending, using several big brawls and a great car chase that has the great resolution to the big mystery which here also allows for the great conclusion, the visual of the car going off the side of the cliff with the others all along the sides and back. Altogether, this here didn't have much wrong with it, but they are big flaws. The biggest one here is that the tactics used to indicate the behavioral change aren't that scary. The fact that it's just not in the least bit scary or creepy is a huge factor here since it's got a lot of these scenes in the beginning which is supposed to show something is wrong, but all it does is just showcase one lame tactic after another. Nothing that happens, from the bullying beat-downs to the association with different cliques and such isn't all that scary, yet that's all the attempts made to try to build up to something, which is deadly dull since nothing really works all that well. The worst factor of all this is that it goes on for so long, since it's pretty much all the first hour of the film that it does this, so there's a lot of time to show off some really nice ideas and scenes to really drive them home, but it's got nothing to showcase at all, and to do it for so much of the film is really bad. The other big flaw here is that there's not a whole lot of blood and gore in this since there are hardly any deaths at all in the film except for the ending. There really needed to be a few deaths scattered throughout to help the film along, and the ones we have are really uninspiring and bloodless anyway, making for another big disappointment. These here are the film's problems.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Brief Nudity.

A good underrated sci-fi favorite film i'm in love with Katie Holmes

First I want to say I love Katie Holmes to death and I really miss the actress. She was so great in the 90's until 2005 when Tom Cruise turned her around and mess her career. Katie Holmes is a wonderful actress beautiful sexy babe and talented in this movie that is one of the reason's why I think this movie is so good and it is not because of James Marsden but because of Katie Holmes. She was so great in Dawson's Creek I watched that show mainly because of Katie. She was damn good in Go and she was a bad-ass in Teaching Mrs. Tingle. I haven't seen her in Pieces of April but I am sure it must be a good movie. I miss the actress after Batman Begins I don't see her on screen time anymore it feel's like she disappeared. In this movie she was so damn awesome and she had such a charm and she was hot. She appeared in video spot The Flys: Got You (Where I Want You) today I am still listening that song.

About the movie: for me this is more mystery sci-fi thriller with flaws and with less action it doesn't have enough action. The film is fast paced mostly those three actors James Marsden, Katie Holmes, and Nick Stahl are really good and they are giving best of their performances I miss that.

The movie follows a group of high school outcasts who are horrified by their "Blue Ribbon" classmates. The new kid in town stumbles across something sinister about the town's method of transforming its unruly teens into upstanding citizens. The movie is more a sci-fi mystery thriller a group of students Blue Ribbon are completely upstanding citizens but they also kill people. They are like cyborg's turned in to zombies. Dr. Edgar Caldicott (Bruce Greenwood) want's to make everyone to be obeying upstanding citizen. When the new kid Steve Clark find's out the truth about what is going on in his school he has to get out. But first he has to safe his sister and his friends from the same fate as his friend Gavin (Nick Stahl) turned out to be.

The film really lacks on the story and it has a flaws. I wish there would be more action and there would more stuntman's in this film. It also lacks on the story how this scantiest brainwashed those kids to be under his spell. It wasn't that enough explained but the rest was great. I enjoyed the film and I had a fun watching it. I loved the ending in which Nick Stahl shows alive and now a high school teacher he he. William Sadler from Die Hard 2 is in this movie and he plays the good guy a janitor and a bad-ass on the end of the film I loved it.

I watched this movie in high school and after high school and even today I am watching it. Disturbing Behavior was released the same year as The Faculty come out. They don't make movies like this one today they really don't. They made a horror movie Get Out that stole mostly this scenes from this movie and it was flawless in my opinion but this movie is my favorite. I want movies like this back, I want movies like this one today I want them so much today. Hollywood doesn't make good movies anymore like are this one today.

Directed was by David Nutter who also directed The X-Files episodes, 21 Jump Street, Booker, Game of Thrones and way other TV Shows he more directed TV shows then movies but still I like this movie it was good. The ranting I am giving is a B 7/10 I wish it wouldn't be that short and also the ending in my opinion was good and happy. Steve (James Marsden) and Rachel (Katie Holmes) are together on a boat they have each other and Steve saved his sister Lindsay (Katharine Isabelle,) the acting from everyone was good and everyone did a good job on this movie, peace.

Disturbing Behavior is a 1998 American science fiction horror film starring James Marsden, Katie Holmes, and Nick Stahl. The screenplay, written by Scott Rosenberg and was compared unfavorably by most critics to the 1975 thriller, The Stepford Wives.

7/10 Grade: B Studio: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Starring: James Marsden, Katie Holmes, Nick Stahl, Bruce Greenwood, William Sadler Director: David Nutter Producer: Armyan Bernstein Writter: Scott Rosenberg Rated: R Running Time: 1 Hrs. 24 Mins. Budget: $15.000.000 Box Office: $17.411.331

Not bad for what it is

Very similar in feel to the same year's THE FACULTY, this teen movie is professionally made (if a little too "slick") and well-directed by David Nutter. Thankfully, instead of making yet another clichéd slasher movie, the producers opted for a STEPFORD WIVES-style conspiracy full of paranoid behaviour and brainwashing. The result is a mixed combination of science fiction and thriller films with plenty of horror content thrown in too. Although plenty clichéd, DISTURBING BEHAVIOUR proves to be a harmless enough evening's entertainment with some nice ideas and good performances, but far from a classic. After a brilliant plot set-up the film gradually falls to pieces at around the halfway mark, becoming an action-orientated film with one climax after another. Whilst the first half of the movie concentrates on building atmosphere and suspense - something it does very well - the second half is a plot less, predictable, and shallow viewing experience.

The flaws are too numerous to mention and typical for the genre. Bad, "teeny" style music playing loudly at inopportune moments and lots of would-be subtle in-jokes and references to other, better films. Then there's the lack of explanation as to the brainwashing experiment itself, which is just kind of glossed over without any real depth. The action scenes are well-staged and stick to being realistic without any glossy special effects, which is good, although the silly ending (which owes a debt of inspiration to the Pied Piper story) lets it down.

James Marsden (X-MEN) and Katie Holmes (THE GIFT) take the leads as the unconventional lovers and are seemingly cast for their good looks rather than their talent, as both are wooden and unconvincing at times. Luckily Nick Stahl (TERMINATOR 3) is around to show them how its down with a fine edgy performance as the paranoid loner. Veteran support comes from Steve Railsback, underused as a sinister cop, and William Sadler, who plays a somewhat silly character (although, in a moment of inspired cheesiness, he does get to utter the immortal line "Teacher, leave those kids alone!"). Nevertheless, DISTURBING BEHAVIOUR is surprisingly entertaining attempt considering the amount of flaws it has and the clichéd story, although hardly brilliant. A mindless and occasionally brilliant movie which tends to hit more than it misses.
