The Apartment Complex is a 1999 American made-for-television mystery-thriller film directed by Tobe Hooper.


The film involves a man named Stan who becomes the manager of an apartment complex with strange tenants, after the previous manager disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Things go downhill after he discovers a corpse in the complex's pool and is accused of murder. More bizarre events occur until he finds his life (and his sanity) in danger, and the tenants just may be his only hope.


Critical reception[edit]

Variety gave the film a favorable review, writing, "not a scarefest by any stretch but creepy enough to sustain the interest of most viewers, this nod to The Twilight Zone cleverly winks its way out of some pretty silly situations. [...] ...director Tobe Hooper [...] earns points for constructing real tension and genuine thrills."[1]
