Known Trivia

    Goofs: Revealing mistakes: When Marnie goes into the basement, her ankle bracelet starts chirping that she is more than 100 feet from the transmitter, when in actuality it is only about 20 to 30 feet above her head.

    Plot: After Marnie Watson kills her abusive husband in self-defense, she is condemned to house arrest… only to discover that the house is possessed by the enraged and violent spirit of her dead husband. Full summary »  »

    Story: A young woman, Marnie Watson, is granted early release from her prison sentence for manslaughter (killing her husband – a violent NYC cop – in self defense) on condition she wear an electronic ankle bracelet and remain within her home, effectively under house arrest, for the remainder of her sentence. Her late husband's partner keeps tabs on her from a patrol car parked across the street, hoping she'll violate probation and he can send her back to prison. But the 100-foot radius her ankle bracelet allows isn't the worst of her problems. Her dead husband –now a malevolent ghost–is still in the house, where he died — intent on savage revenge.Written by Grand Ilusions

      Saw this at a film fest in Germany and its really not a bad horrordrama. Marnie Watson (Famke Janssen) is released from prison but has toserve the rest of her sentence under house arrest. This is the samehouse in which she killed, in self defense, her Police Officer husbandMike Watson (Michael Paré).

      Plot wise this movie falls a little bit flat. There is no explanationto all the events that occur in this film. Shanks seems to take a verystrange interest in Marnie. Even to the point of parking outside herhouse and watching her day and night. But there is no real reason forthis, he has a hunch that perhaps Marnie didn't kill Mike. The actingoverall was fine, I quite like Janssen and she played this part well.Although I thought she was very calm considering the circumstances.

      Directed by Eric Red, who I knew little about. When I checked itappears he has done other films, things like Cohen and Tate, and hasquite a few writing credits. There are some nice well done scenes inthis film, a few jump type moments but nothing really scary. There isone quite horrific scene in the bedroom when the ghost of Mike takes adislike to Marnie's new beau. The effects were done well, though alittle bit over dramatic at the end.

      This is a Horror/Thriller but I would say leans more to the Horrorgenre than Thriller. It could have gone more down the Thriller route,and there were enough plot lines running through to create a decentThriller.

      All in all it was an enjoyable film that held my interest, but left measking more questions than it answered.

      I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Maybe more than I should have. It'samazing how this film could keep me interested when all I expected wasto enjoy 90 minutes or so of Famke Janseen on my screen. She delivereda really good performance, naturally… but the highlight of the filmwas the ghost himself. Very scary stuff. I got goosebumps at everyscene and that's hard to say with the recent garbage out there thesedays. As far as characters… well done. You ever watch those filmswhere every line is like a narration for the audience? As if we're alldummies? Well, there's no instructional dialogue between charactershere; it's just plain as day and straight to the point. Eric Red isreally good director as well, I'll be looking for more of his work fromhere on out. Great effects, great story, I can only take off pointsjust to be unbiased. I'm impressed. Hollywood should step back and takenotes. This is how it's done. Stop stealing ideas from Japan and Korea.Use 100 Feet as a blueprint and you'll sell more tickets you hacks.

      Lets just say that Famke Janssen does a great acting job in this movie!She can really pull of being the lead roll. The special effects wheremediocre and the story was kinda weak. Still, for being a ghost/spiritmovie on a tight budget, it was awesome. 100 feat is scary, but stillkinda sad, since she gets the cold shoulder from everyone, and she haveto re-live her beating over again. And i just have to say, it shouldstand: Horror, thriller AND drama.

      Soooo, i have to give it a 7. Well written movie and her role seems toact realistic if you know what i mean. (she is one we can relate too,kinda. Not just a dumb blonde who falls every time someone is chasingher)

      Tight budget or not this was a very mediocre film, even bordering onabsolute rubbish. The special effects were not particularly special.The storyline was 'woman files numerous reports of spousal abuse to thepolice station where her husband is stationed eventually snaps whenafter the six reports had been swept under the carpet he attacks heragain. This time he attacks her with a knife. She kills him by grabbingthe knife from him and stabbing him three times. on early release fromjail she gets put under house-arrest for one year (at the start of thefilm six months later on in it). Mikey then starts to exact hisrevenge'. The storyline was virtually non-existent. The acting was sominimal it almost was not there. Famke Janssen did her best in the leadrole, actually she didn't but then there was not a lot for her to do. Ihave seen other films she has been in where she has been better. Theperson playing Shanks didn't have a lot to do either, in fact no-onedid really.

      In one scene her dead ex pulls her hand into the waste-disposal unitand turns it on cutting her hand so badly that in the next scene sheneeds to wrap it in a towel only for her hand to be perfectly alrightfor the rest of the film. In another set of scenes the ghost of the expulls her down the stairs her head hitting every wooden step as shewent and yet she got up at the bottom with no effect whatsoever. Theseare not the only cases of inconsistencies.

      So, after having a 'solid' ghost what are we going to be subjected tonext? Dracula sunbathing in the midday sun? A person changing into awerewolf when there is no full moon in the sky? This really is not oneto see in a hurry!

      So this woman kills her husband and she goes to prison but then shegets out to go home and be under house arrest. No judge on earth wouldallow something like that. Then her husbands ghost beats her up andthat sounds like a stupid plot for a movie. Why didn't the ghosthusband just beat her up in prison? Then her ankle thing goes off forover three minutes and no one comes to arrest her at all. How lame.There was a great movie about a teenager who was under house arrest andall he could do was watch what his creepy neighbor was doing. The moviewas called "Disturbia." I would suggest watching that movie and stayinga least 100 billion feet away from this one.

      100 feet is an openly aggressive film that does well to keep your pulsepounding all the way up to the flat line ending. I enjoyed the ideabehind the story and for the most part felt as though it was wellportrayed. Several times you find yourself having to stretch yourimagination in order to play along but nothing I would consider a dealbreaker. I highly appreciated the amount of time and attention spent onthe gore effects. On the other side of that coin a little more time andeffort put into actually frightening the viewer would have been wellreceived. Sadly this is a film that would have ranked much higher hadthe ending not brought the momentum to a stand-still. As is, still adecent flick.

      Ghost movies aren't typically my cup of tea; I don't even believe inGhosts! However, this movie delivered! The acting was believable andgood, the effects were very good. The plot while not wonderfullyoriginal was unique enough, and suspenseful enough to keep me riveted!There are two things I found noteworthy and unique in this film. First,ghost movies usually try to be Hitchcock'esquire and fail. The Ghost inthis film however is prominent and displayed. The suspense is built andgenuinely creepy but they aren't afraid to flaunt a shaded nasty.Nextly the film didn't waste the first forty five minutes on thecharacters trying to figure out what was going on. They ghost came, hewas violent and she knew what was happening.

      One last thing, this film while violent, really hearkens back to theclassic scary movie. It doesn't rely on gore to scare you. You don'thave some lame heavy metal sound track. There is no pointless nudity.The film will not excite you eyes but it will raise the hairs on theback of your neck and make you check the house before you go to sleep:)

      I thought this was a decent movie. The story line particularly madethis title more appeasing to me. A lady kills her husband in selfdefense after being beaten for years? I like this only because this areal scenario that happens all to often, and the women in punished forit. Even though eventually the husband would probably kill her anyways.I like the fact that she is on house arrest which gives the story acertain twist. The scenes are suspenseful and make you clench yourteeth and jump at certain times. The characters are done well and thestory moves at a decent pace. There was some really good gore and someparticularly scary parts which were also done well. As for the end,what can I say, after all the horror movies that have been made endingsare harder and harder to do. This movie was great up until the end, andeven the end was not that horrible, it was still kind of bad enough tomake me reduce my rating on this movie. All in all, worth the watch,but probably wont be a favorite.

      After seven years and fifty-two days in prison, Marnie Watson (FamkeJanssen) returns to her old house in Brooklyn, New York, under thehouse arrest condition for the next six months. Marnie was sentencedfor killing her abusive and brutal husband, the policeman Mike Watson(Michael Paré), in self-defense and she must wear an electronic bracearound her ankle that allows her to move in a 100-foot radius in thehouse during her probation. Mike's former partner Shanks (BobbyCannavale) takes Marnie under his custody, stalking her from his car,expecting her to violate the limits of the electronic device and sendher back to prison. Sooner Marnie discovers that she is trapped in thehouse with the fiend of Mike that has not moved on and is still in thehouse seeking revenge against her.

      I am a big fan of horror movies and Famke Janssen, and "100 Feet" was agreat surprise for me. This ghost story has an original theatricalscreenplay supported by the acting of this gorgeous Dutch actress andsome decent special effects. I believe that fans of this genre will notbe disappointed with the plot. My only negative remark is with the badconclusion, with the explosion of the ghost and Marnie able to leaveher place without any money, documentation or friends and her pictureon the front page of the news, but traveling somewhere by bus. She hadonly six months sentence to be a free woman; Shanks could help herduring the rest of her probation; and her house might have an insurancepolicy. This good movie deserved an alternative ending. My vote isseven.

      Eric Red's "100 Feet" has been making its rounds since mid-2008 andfinally found an American release via the Sci-Fi Channel. For those whoare "in the know," any film that ends up on that much-maligned networkhas an automatic death sentence. Several months after itsedited-for-content version was first unleashed, it has finally found anuncut domestic release on DVD. The good news is that it never belongedon the Sci-Fi Channel alongside such films as "Frankenfish" and "BeyondLoch Ness" (two films that I am proud to say I have never seen). Evenbetter news is that it is, no doubt, substantially better than justabout every other film ever to have its debut on there. The bad news isthat, while it is a good film, it is also deeply flawed. An intriguingand occasionally powerful concept is mired in the woes of its obviouslylow-budget and shoddy technique. This is a prime example of a film thatis all idea with very little skilled execution.
