The Girl Next Door (2007) movie


Two recently orphaned sisters are placed in the care of their mentally unstable aunt Ruth. Ruth’s depraved sense of discipline will soon lead to acts of abuse and torture that involve her young sons and the neighborhood children.

Based on

The story is loosely based on the murder of Sylvia Likens. The real case is much worse and different than the movie.

Is it good?

It is a great movie. It might be a bit heavy for some, but it seems doable. The violence is off screen. It is a good horror movie. It is well-shot. It has good pacing and good acting.

The violence could be a lot worse. It uses just enough violence to tell the story.

Real case

I recommend the YouTube video Sylvia Marie Likens - Kasey Shane if you want to learn more about the real case.

Where can I watch it?

You can find the movie on effedupmovies.com, enjoy.

There is also the movie An American Crime about the case, but I think that it is more like a documentary, which also misses some true facts about the crime.
