D'Artagnan The Horse,
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.
At a fast food restaurant, the manager, Sandra, is having a bad day. Suddenly, she gets a phone call from a man claiming to be a police officer who has a complaint that one of her young female employees has stolen from a customer. At the orders of this authoritative sounding stranger, Sandra takes the apparent accused, Becky, to a back room to search her before she is picked up. Once there, the phone scammer manipulates the gullible personnel into participating in Becky's sexual humiliation that grows more twisted with every new sucker on the phone. Only when one final person has the conscience to revolt do they realize the crime they were tricked into, which the real police are hard pressed to solve. Written by

In an episode of Law and Order:SVU, Robin Williams portrayed a man who also called a fast food manager and had him strip search and interrogate a female employee pretending to be an Officer Milgram. Later on in the episode he performed the experiment on main characters Elliot Stabler(Chris Meloni) and Olivia Benson(Mariska Hargitay). In addition Dreama Walker, who stars in this movie, was in a 16th season episode of Law and Order:SVU called "Forgiving Rollins". See more »
When the police are collecting computer surveillance footage as evidence from the restaurant's computers, a policeman takes out a CD/DVD reader claiming it has all the backups for all the systems. He should be taking the computer's hard-drives as evidence. See more »

I saw this today at the Traverse City Film Festival. About 1/4 of the audience walked out before the film ended. I do not disagree that the movie is difficult to watch, but I think you can hardly review a movie where you walked out without seeing the entire film. This film makes an important and real point... that many of us will, when listening to what we assume to be an authority figure, do things which we know are wrong. It also has two characters who say in one way or another "No, I will not do this." Bravo for them and may each of us feel empowered to do the same, if not by our own ethical standards, then by viewing this movie and realizing how devastating the consequences can be.
One would like to be able to say "No one could be so stupid" but the fact that this type of event (involving, reportedly, even more degrading assaultive behavior than portrayed in this film) has happened repeatedly in this country (over 70, according to the closing credits) shows that wish to be untrue. I hope every young person will view this film and be brave enough to refuse any authority figure who makes demands on them which seem to go beyond the bounds of the law and good sense.
And don't ever talk to a law officer in detail without your attorney being present (and no, I am not a lawyer.)
