According to director Penelope Spheeris DVD commentary, movie had to be cut and submitted to the MPAA 10 times to get R rating. Scenes that were cut or changed include; Scene where gas attendant is beat up was shortened to lessen the intensity and sound effects were toned down. Murder of gay man in his apartment was cut down (mostly sound effects were heavily toned down). Scene where Roy violently shakes the lady and kills her was heavily cut down, various shots were removed to lessen the intensity. See more »
"The boys next door" is a superb movie. Bo and Ray, two mischevious best freinds, set out for a hightime weekend after graduation. They get spun out of control, and eventually, kill in cold blood for no apparent reason.
This movie will make you go away thinking. With a twist ending that is supremly unexpected, and altogether a deliberate ironic musing, this movie is a must see! It is one of those rare movie, where you go away saying, "Hey, that movie was actually really good!"
What I liked about this movie, is it is what I like to call a Sleeping Suprise. Its one of those movies that you casually pass by in the movie store, roll your thumb over in a tv guide, but when you finally do get around to watching this movie, you know you have witnessed something you should have seen earlier. I loved this movie, and you will too.
With great acting, a realistic story line, and superb script, "The boys next door" will leave you thinking about the minds of a serial killer, and the qualms of a deeply distubed mind.With inside information about real life serial killers, it will leave you looking over your shoulder for days to come! 8 out of 10...
