Ready for a scary story? Maybe not horror, but something a little more realistic? Me, I’m kinda iffy on the whole thriller genre; give me monsters that are
phony easily defeated, or a psycho killer just as unrealistic spooky. I can totally handle those kindsa things. But tales of stalkers and jerkwad neighbors? Too close to real y’all. *shivers*
But The Boy Next Door is a’comin’, and I’ll be curled in the foetal. Here’s a taste of the tale straight from the studio’s press kit:
There is little that’s more overpowering, reckless and all-consuming than intense desire. For some, that desire bleeds into obsession. Global superstar JENNIFER LOPEZ (Maid in Manhattan, Out of Sight, Monster-in-Law, The Wedding Planner) leads the cast in The Boy Next Door, a psychological thriller directed by industry veteran ROB COHEN (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, The Fast and the Furious) that explores a forbidden attraction that goes much too far….Noah’s fatal attraction will force Claire to her limits as she protects her world from being torn apart and her family from a psychotic danger.
Ooh, a little MILF attraction, a lotta Fatal Attraction? Maybe a little No Good Deed thrown in for good measure (goodness knows the cast here is just as pretty…) All I can say is that it’s already looking like Kristin Chenoweth is getting the short end of the pointy psycho killer stick. Hope I’m not right. Oh look — John Corbett! Mmm, Aidan.
