Roommates - Plot - Netflix
Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) is starting her freshman year of college. She meets Tracy (Aly Michalka), Stephen (Cam Gigandet) – her love interest, and Rebecca (Leighton Meester) – her college roommate. The girls begin to bond and Rebecca learns that Sara had an older sister, Emily, who died when Sara was nine, and an ex-boyfriend, Jason (Matt Lanter), who keeps calling her in attempts to reconcile. As time goes on, Rebecca's obsession with Sara grows, which causes her to drive away anyone who could come between them. Rebecca attacks Tracy in the shower, pinning her down and ripping out her belly-button ring, and says that she is a bad influence on Sara and threatens to kill Tracy unless she stays away from Sara. Tracy moves to another dorm, fearful of Rebecca. An old friend of Sara's named Irene (Danneel Harris), who is a lesbian, invites Sara to move in with her when Sara's cat Cuddles is discovered. Rebecca then kills Cuddles by putting her in the dryer and lies to Sara that the cat ran away. Rebecca then inflicts injuries upon herself and says she was assaulted by a thug. Sara feels bad for her and decides to spend the Thanksgiving with Rebecca. When Sara's philandering fashion design professor, Roberts (Billy Zane), kisses her, Rebecca plans to get the professor out of the picture by seducing him while recording their dialogue on a tape recorder to make it sound like he was trying to rape her. During her stay, Sara overhears a conversation between Rebecca and her father (Tomas Arana), hinting Rebecca has had trouble making friends in the past. Rebecca's mother (Frances Fisher) mentions that Rebecca is supposed to be taking medication. She and Stephen later find a bottle of Zyprexa pills, used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The bottle is full, implying that Rebecca has not been taking the pills. Sara, worried about what would happen, decides to move in with Irene. Irene goes to a club where she sees Rebecca. They kiss passionately in the club's bathroom and Irene, not knowing that Rebecca is Sara's roommate, takes Rebecca back to her place. The following morning, Sara goes to Irene's apartment but she is not there. Rebecca gets Sara's sister's name tattooed in the same place on her breast as Sara, saying that Sara can now think of Rebecca as her sister. A shocked Sara realizes that Rebecca is obsessed with her and packs all her things, except her sister's necklace, which she cannot find (the necklace had been stolen by Rebecca). Jason arrives at Sara's dorm and slips a note under her door, saying that he wants to see her. Rebecca reads the note, impersonates Sara with her sister's necklace and tattoo, and dyes her hair to look like Sara. She then goes to Jason's hotel room and stabs him to death. Later, Sara gets a text from Irene, saying she needs her right away. When she gets there, she finds that Rebecca kidnapped Irene and is holding her captive, bound and gagged so she can't get free or call out for someone to save her. Rebecca reveals that she was responsible for what happened to Tracy, Cuddles, Professor Roberts, Irene, and Jason and that she did it all to win Sara's friendship. Rebecca wants to kill Irene, in order to finally have Sara all to herself. Rebecca reaches for the revolver but struggled with Sara who tried to stop her from shooting Irene. The gun got free and Sara winded up outside the room while Sara quickly locked the door. Sara tried to get out the window to get help meanwhile Rebecca tried to break down the door. Rebecca finally shot the lock and broke into the room and nearly missed Sara with a shot. Stephen suddenly showed up and tried to subdue Rebecca; however, in the ensuing struggle and enraged, Rebecca attacks Sara and tries to strangle her, but Sara stabs Rebecca in the back with a box cutter, killing her. Irene was still tied up but was eventually untied by Sara. Sara moves back into her dorm and moves the extra bed out of her room with the help of Stephen, proclaiming that she does not want a roommate for a while.
