Ketchum’s Girl Next Door Coming to DVD


Anchor Bay brings her home this December

Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the hard-hitting, critically acclaimed true-life shocker Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door on December 4th.

This harrowing true story of betrayal, violence and terror in a typical 1950s neighborhood, is all the more shocking because it actually happened. Orphans Meg (Blythe Auffarth) and her disabled sister Susan (Madeline Taylor) are held captive by their distant aunt Ruth (Emmy-Award winner Blanche Baker), a tormented and sadistic woman rapidly going insane. Ruth’s madness has infected her three sons, as well as the entire neighborhood. Only 12-year-old David (Daniel Manche) stands between Meg and Susan and what threatens to be their protracted and torturous deaths.

Stephen King advised: “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.'”

Bonus features will include:

– Audio commentary with Director Gregory Wilson, Producer Andrew van den Houten, and Cinematographer/Co-Producer William M. Miller

– Audio commentary with Novelist Jack Ketchum and Screenwriters Daniel Farrands and Philip Nutman

– Interviews with Cast & Crew

– Exclusive Documentary: The Making of The Girl Next Door
