“The First authentically shocking American film I’ve seen since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer over 20 years ago. If you are easily disturbed, you should not watch this movie. If, on the other hand, you are prepared for a long look into hell, suburban style, The Girl Next Door will not disappoint. This is the dark-side-of-the-moon version of Stand by Me.” – Stephen King
What they did to her in that basement became one of the most shocking crimes in history.
“An amazing piece of cinema…It will leave you thinking about it for days. There is no other recommendation other than buy it as soon as it’s released.” – Horror Talk
In a quiet suburban town ini the summer of 1958, two recently orphaned sisters are placed in the care of their mentally unstable Aunt Ruth (Emmy winner Blanche Baker of Holocaust). But Ruth’s depraved sense of discipline will soon lead to unspeakable acts of abuse and torture that involve her young sons, the neighborhood children, and one 12-year-old boy whose live will be changed forever. William Atherton (Die Hard), Catherine Mary Stewart (Night of the Comet), and Grant Show (Melrose Place) co-star in this devastating drama adapted from the controversial best seller by Jack Ketchum that Rue Morgue Magazine called “one of the most disturbing reads in the history of horror literature.”
The Girl Next Door is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
