Released:

Rating:
R

Surveillance is a 2006 horror movie directed by Fritz Kiersch. Harley (Armand Assante) seems like the perfect mall security cop. He is oddly dedicated, devoted and in control of his environment, using advanced technology to monitor every corner of the mall and neutralize any threats before they can become serious. However, Harley may be a little too good to be true. When he reluctantly accepts a new apprentice, Dennis (Nick Cornish), the younger man is suspicious of Harley's devotion to his less than glamorous job. He also suspects that Harley might be hiding a dark secret behind his workaholic facade. Dennis notices that Harley seems especially fond of the mall's assistant manager, pretty Claire (Laurie Fortier). He decides that it is up to him to dig a little deeper into Harley's past and see if he can figure out why his boss gives off such bad vibes. When a string of strange deaths start cropping up around the mall, Dennis knows that Harley is the last person to call on for help.
