100 Feet is a suspenseful horror movie from 2008 that stars Famke Janssen, Bobby Cannavale, and Ed Westwick. Directed by Eric Red, it follows Marnie Watson (played by Janssen), a woman who has just been released from prison after serving time for killing her abusive husband. Under house arrest and unable to leave her home, Marnie begins to experience unsettling paranormal activity within the confines of her house, especially from the ghost of her dead husband.

The story starts with Marnie Watson returning home from prison to serve her sentence under house arrest. She is greeted by her parole officer, Shanks (played by Bobby Cannavale), who tells her that she cannot leave the home for any reason or else her sentence will be extended. At first, Marnie tries to make the best of her situation by reconnecting with her mother and trying to put her life back together. But soon, she realizes that she is not alone in the house.

Marnie starts to experience strange things happening around her home, like objects moving on their own and doors opening and closing without anyone touching them. She begins to suspect that her late husband, Mike Watson (played by Michael Paré), is haunting her from beyond the grave. As she investigates further, she discovers that Mike's spirit is trapped in the house and unable to move on because of the brutal way in which he died.

Marnie tries to seek help from her friend Joey (played by Ed Westwick), who is an electrician and a paranormal investigator. Joey installs cameras around the house and tries to capture evidence of the paranormal activity. But the more they investigate, the more dangerous things become. Marnie is constantly in fear of her life as the ghostly presence around her becomes more and more violent.

The tension builds up as Marnie tries to find a way to lay Mike's spirit to rest, while also trying to survive the menacing paranormal activity in her home. The climax of the movie is intense, as Marnie finally confronts the ghost of her husband and tries to save herself from his wrath.

100 Feet is a well-made horror movie that combines suspense, thrills, and chills. The acting performances are solid, especially by Famke Janssen, who perfectly portrays the fear and desperation of a woman trapped in her own home with an evil spirit. Bobby Cannavale is also effective as the stern but sympathetic parole officer.

The cinematography is impressive, with the narrow and claustrophobic setting of Marnie's home adding to the sense of fear and dread. The use of lighting and sound is also well-done, with the movie effectively creating a spooky, horror-movie atmosphere.

In conclusion, 100 Feet is a gripping, spooky horror movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's a perfect example of a scary movie that doesn't rely on gore or jump-scares to create fear, but rather builds tension through an engaging story and solid performances. If you're a fan of horror movies, then 100 Feet is definitely worth checking out.
