Young British boys and girls travel to an isolated cabin after being promised a night of heavy partying. Instead of the fun they hoped for, they meet a killer out to reap vengeance on them for the death of his brother.
Based on the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name, The Girl Next Door follows the unspeakable torture and abuses committed on a teenage girl in the care of her aunt...and the boys who witness and fail to report the crime.
Bob, a cab-driving serial killer who stalks his prey on the city streets alongside his reluctant protégé Tim, who must make a life or death choice between following in Bob's footsteps or breaking free from his captor.
In 1996, in the Balkans, the population of a small town is slaughtered by a militia under the command of the inhuman Goran that abducts young girls for prostitution in a brothel owned by the cruel Viktor. The deaf Angel that witnessed the execution of her mother has a weird birth mark on the face and Viktor chooses her to housework; to put makeup and drug the girls for the clients; and cleaning them up after the brutal encounters. Angel also sneaks between the walls and ventilation ducts during the night. Angel befriends the girl Vanya that knows the language of the deaf. When Goran returns to the house with his men, Angel witnesses one of them raping and killing Vanya and she revenges her new friend killing the man. Now Goran and his men are hunting her down and she is trapped in the house. Written by

Later in the film, when Dimitri attempts to strangle Angel with his belt, she stabs him with a syringe loaded with heroin. He almost immediately reels back, loses coordination, and begins vomiting. The first issue with this is the method of injection. For heroin (or any drug) to have a near-immediate effect when injected, it must be intravenously (IV) injected, i.e., directly into a blood vein. With Angel jabbing the needle randomly into his leg like she does, the chances of hitting a vein directly or hitting and not going through are slim; more likely, the needle will pierce muscle tissue and be injected intramuscularly (IM), a method which will result in a much longer and milder onset of effects.
Also, assuming the dose Angel draws into the needle is comparable to what she normally gives the girls, it likely would not effect a large man the same way it would the smaller girls; specifically, Dimitri probably would not have experienced vomiting and coordination loss to the point where he couldn't stand straight. However, it might also be assumed that the girls have been there a while and have developed a tolerance for the drug, resulting in a larger dose being necessary. If this were the case, the dose might be enough to affect Dimitri in such a manner, assuming he doesn't use heroin on a regular basis himself. See more »

I give it a 10 out of 10, not because it's the perfect movie or was enjoyable, it certainly was not enjoyable, but because it's such an important subject matter. Thousands upon thousands of women are preyed upon by evil men each year. Every second people are raped and tortured and abused.
But how much is really done about it? Considering the magnitude of this evil, almost nothing. So movies like this are very important to increase public awareness. And maybe there will come a more determined effort by the general public some day to remove this evil from the world.
I'd recommend that movie to anyone. And by the way there is some strong acting in this movie. In fact it feels real, as if I was watching something which really is happening and not being acted.(well in fact it IS real, well reality is probably worse or just as bad). In Bombay alone are over 250,000 women, girls and children in forced prostitution.....
