As I’ve been wanting to inject more posts and articles about “cult” titles into Icons Of Fright, I finally got around to watching one earlier this afternoon that I’d heard of but never seen; it’s something that I think fans of this site and horror in general might want to seek out and experience for themselves – Penelope Spheeris’ 1985 flick The Boys Next Door.

The movie opens up with a montage of photos and voice-overs discussing various serial killers of the last few decades; how people can’t make sense of the crimes that these young unassuming men commit. How it’s difficult to comprehend the actions of seemingly good “boys next door”. And then we’re introduced to Roy (Maxwell Caulfield) and Bo (Charlie Sheen). They’re two prankster teens who have just graduated high school and have no real motivation or drive for their future. Roy however has a problem. »
