Sound effects student Ted (Matt Felmlee) is hired to play the court jester at a party - but accidently knocks on the wrong door, which is opened by his secret crush Jennifer (Loreal Steiner), who manages to mouth "help me" to him before the door's closed again and Ted is dragged off to the party. After having done his duty at the party, he returns to Jennifer's apartment - to find her supposedly lifeless body on the floor, yet when he gets help, her body's gone, only to later pop up in his car. Aparently Jennifer has been stabbed, but she's not quite dead yet but hands Ted some keys before making a disappearing act. It's not long though before Ted crosses paths with Jeff (Jeff Tatum) and his sidekick Vic (Chris Hall). Turns out Jeff is looking for a certain tape that he suspects Jennifer to have handed over to Ted and that he desparately needs. Ted gets away from Jeff and Vic more out of pure luck than everything else, and now goes looking for the tape himself - successfully so, too. Only to find out on the tape Jeff confesses to a murder - and now Jeff is after him ...

 

Shot-on-video movies can be great fun for sure - but unfortunately many of them are rather shoddily made, with little in regards to interesting filmmaking and aiming for the lowest common denominator. Not so The Wrong Door though, a film based on a cleverly structured script that contains interesting character and story arcs, camerawork that within given technical limitations goes for a certain cinematic look, and a directorial effort that owes more to thrillers of old than to any then current trends, choosing suspense over spectacle. And without ever going the moronic route, the film has a fine ironic twang to it, making it a well rounded-out piece of cool thriller entertainment.
