Fueled by icy sexuality and raw violence, Next Door is a chilling and provocative thriller with a mind-bending twist. Newly single, John befriends the two women living in the cluttered labyrinth of an apartment next door. This neighbourly spirit leads to a bizarre seduction, culminating with a blow to the jaw that dredges up deeply disturbing memories. Could it be the end of John's sanity, or is it just what he needs to see things clearly for the first time?
John’s unremarkable existence starts to unravel when he gets involved with an attractive pair of neighbours who seem to know an awful lot about him. Just like in one of my favourite films, “Don’t Look Now”, the two mysterious women, although rather menacing, are actually there to give an insight into the male character’s state of mind and inclinations and by the end of the film you’ll be sorry they did. To be avoided if you’re after a date movie; John’s mind is a dark and nasty place to be.
