2 Min Read

It’s official, Justin Powell and David Charbonier’s first feature film The Boy Behind the Door is coming to Shudder! AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural has acquired the exclusive rights to the film for release in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Starring Lonnie Chavis and Ezra Dewey, The Boy Behind the Door tells the tale of a night of unimaginable terror for twelve-year-old Bobby and his best friend, Kevin, who are abducted on their way home from school. Managing to escape his confines, Bobby navigates the dark halls, praying his presence goes unnoticed as he avoids his captor at every turn. Even worse is the arrival of another stranger, whose mysterious arrangement with the kidnapper may spell certain doom for Kevin. With no means of calling for help and miles of dark country in every direction, Bobby embarks on a rescue mission, determined to get himself and Kevin out alive … or die trying.

The Boy Behind the Door also stars Kristin Bauer van Straten (True BloodNocturnal Animals), Scott Michael Foster (Crazy Ex-GirlfriendOnce Upon A Time) and Micah Hauptman (HomelandRust Creek).

“From its first frame, ‘The Boy Behind the Door’ ratchets up the tension in a way that seems to never let up. Justin and David have tapped into what true evil lurking around in our world today looks like, and I can think of no better place for audiences to experience this unrelenting thrill ride than Shudder.” — Craig Engler, General Manager of Shudder.

Don’t miss this terrifying thriller when it lands on Shudder on Thursday, July 29.
