Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, has acquired the exclusive rights to The Boy Behind the Door for release in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on Thursday, July 29. The first feature from co-writers and directors Justin Powell and David Charbonier, the suspense thriller tells a gripping, powerful tale of survival and friendship in the face of evil.
In The Boy Behind the Door, a night of unimaginable terror awaits twelve-year-old Bobby (Lonnie Chavis) and his best friend, Kevin (Ezra Dewey), when they 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.
