Roy Alston and Bo Richards are two marginal teenagers who are bored in high school. Freshly graduated, they have no other prospect than a life of hard work at the local factory. For their last weekend of freedom, they decide to go on a trip to Los Angeles. The years of contained rage and frustration will trigger in them a real murderous madness...
In The Boys Next Door , director Penelope Spheeris ( Wayne's World ) films the tale of a descent into hell, somewhere between The Wild Ride and A Clockwork Orange . Actors Maxwell Caulfield ( Grease 2 ) and Charlie Sheen ( Platoon ) perfectly embody this drifting American youth, drawn to violence and blood. A hypnotic and chilling work presented for the first time in its new 4K restoration!
