Professional Reviews

The Village Voice 6 of 10
Among the shocking revelations awaiting the viewer of Gregory Wilson's The Girl Next Door: Beneath the 1950's seemingly placid exterior of Ozzie and Harriet normalcy, there were--brace yourself!--sinister undercurrents at work. Case in point: sour-souled suburban divorcee Ruth Chandler (Blanche Baker) gains popularity with local adolescents by handing out beers, but things really get hopping in her basement when she offers up her 14-year-old adopted charge, Meg (Blythe Auffarth, in the film's only faintly credible performance), as a repository for every imaginable abuse, up to and including blowtorch clitorectomy. An obligatory yank at sociological import comes through Ruth referring to "fellow travelers," as the burgeoning torture-snuff genre receives another tediously grim entry, this one showing off like a kid who's just learned how to cuss...The source is a Jack Ketchum novel, itself inspired by the 1965 slaying of teenaged Sylvia Likens (also the subject of the upcoming An American Crime), but any resonance from that real-life atrocity gets smothered by a script that interlaces cliched dialogue so tightly as to block out any glint of recognizable human behavior. - Nick Pinkerton

Reel.com 8 of 10
Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door is set in 1958 in a bucolic New Jersey suburb, but Haddonfield is definitely not part of Leave It to Beaver or Happy Days territory. This is a place where nightmares happen and this horror movie adaptation of Ketchum's terrifying novel magnifies the story's brutality. It is effective, genuinely horrifying, but painful to watch. This is not Hollywood violence. There is not an ounce of gloss to relieve the sickening images...Director Gregory Wilson deserves credit for not shying away from the unsavory aspects of the story. No one can accuse him of turning the violence into pornography, because his imagery is about as ugly as it comes. What happens to Meg is unspeakable and no one is going to get off on watching the lovely Auffarth become increasingly unrecognizable as Ruth and the kids subject her to absolute horror. That said, it is hard to imagine who is going to want to squirm in their seats for 90 minutes watching this outside of Ketchum's fan base. To say the film is disconcerting is an understatement. The Girl Next Door is a trip to hell. - Pam Grady
