This is a dark, foreboding series filmed in Rust Belt Pennsylvania, with terrific performances across the board.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 351 – The Boy Behind the Door

This is a film produced by streaming service, Shudder, with two directors – which, though not as bad as an Alan Smithee production – doesn’t always bode well.

On this podcast, talk centres on the changing seasons, The Houses October Built, a POV horror centred on Halloween haunted houses, The Shining, Burnt Offerings, Candyman, and yes, The Boy Behind the Door and the sympathy generated by horror films that feature kid protagonists.
