I think what disturbs me most after watching the film, is the responses condemning the little boy. This was a kid...and cannot have been expected to act like an adult in defiance of a mentally unbalanced adult and the nasty little cadre of other youngsters she had control over. Think "Lord of the Flies" (if you've read it) and try to understand that children don't cope with extreme situations as you would hope an adult would. He didn't tell for the same reasons that molested children and battered/abused children often don't tell. Wow, ya'll. Just wow.

Very good movie, but a warning; If your a dad like me, some scenes are very hard to watch without wanting to smash someones face in.

Wow...I almost didn't make it through. My heart actually hurts. This is just so sickening and so enraging. I've watched many disturbing movies that have sadistic actions portrayed in them but this crosses the line, for me anyways. Powerful stories like this need to be told but acted out in a movie, with children, no, hell no, the book would have sufficed. I'm almost as pissed at whoever the hell put this into production as I was with that "Ruth"less bitch and her vile children. Wow am I mad, and for that matter, what kind of a parent would let their child actor be involved with such a film? I really wish I didn't watch that and just read the book, I can't even rate it, it shouldn't exist, yeah, we humans are the ugliest thing on this planet. Seriously don't watch, unless you like watching children raping children.

My heart goes out to the real girl who went through the inhuman torture..i read bout it a long time back and this movie was directed almost spot on..leaves you with a huge amount of anger and apathy knowing what humans would do to their own kind 10/10

I am disgusted and wanted to jump through the screen pissed off when I watched this. I can not phathom why Davey didn't get help multiple times. Emotional movie is not the word.... I can't even find the words. I can't even sleep. This sweet poor girl. I am so upset, I almost threw my laptop against the wall. You should have to sign a waiver to watch this.

This is a good movie but An American Crime is more accurate in its telling of the story.

Words fail to describe the emotions that bubble to the surface as one watches this truly horrifying true story of humans without humanity... An unflinching account of the brutality inflicted on one young victim of a cruel and domineering caretaker will make you angry, disgusted and helplessly sad. That said, the tale is one that needed to be told, and as a film, the performances are nothing short of brilliant. This is not for entertainment, but rather for purpose. And Jack Ketchum's disturbing novel of this true 1950's case is adapted with uncommon dedication to the victims, directly and indirectly affected by the actions of a sadistic and domineering woman who's own unresolved issues fuel her need for power. It's difficult to watch, but it is also a must see gut-check to remind us of our humanity. 8/10.

I saw 'an american crime" so this is like another version of what actually happened to sylvia ... The incident was captured better in american crime to me personally .. but they did a good job in this movie as well ... she was a strong girl still ... if only Davie wouldve just told the police or his parents ... she could have told her own story of child abuse ... smh this is so sad ... just plain ole fucked up ... There is a special place in hell for the ppl responsible ... Ive read up on the actual story and the Gertrude ( the evil bitch that was the mom) died once released from prison ... the son got out of jail and i believe they said he moved away and changed his name never to be heard from again ... her daughter that actually started the bullshit for her being mistreated did the same and these days she claims she doesnt remember what happened with sylvia ... TERRIBLE! *side note* these ppl were "christians" ... smmfh

Sylvia's story is so dispressing... I watched "An American Crime" which is a movie based on the 1965 case of Sylvia Likens. Knowing what happened is scaring. I wanna know more about it so I'll probably watch "The Girl Next Door" too.

Sad story this one. Can't understand why that kid never told his parents or someone sooner. Was an ok movie, thoroughly unpleasant in parts to watch.

Great movie, but very disturbing, excellently cast and directed. The people portrayed in this film were total monsters. I myself liked An American Crime better, as I believe it came closer to portraying the true facts. In either case, both movies were just as horrifying to watch. 9/10

This is a movie based off a novel... Very sickening to say the least. Not for the faint of heart. However the novel is much more brutal. It is said the movie is based off the torture and murder of real life Sylvia Likens (1965). People tend to twist the facts as the novel is only loosely based. Author Jack Ketchum merely scratched the surface of the real events AND changed alot of what really happened. As most novelists and other writers tend to do. Some great acting in this film, but it didn't make it any easier to watch.

Unneccessary remake of An American Crime. After all I have read up on this it seems that this movie has added things that just did not happen. If this is true then I suggest the movie above because it is supposed to be much closer to fact although still horrifying. Whether right or wrong as far as facts, both movies are indeed well done.

This film is disgusting! I cannot believe there are actual people out there that would do this to another human being let alone their family. It is sick.

This movie will seriously have you yelling at your screen. Im still completely dumb founded as to how none of those idiot kids did nothing to stop what was happening especially her friend Davey. Uggghh.... a good watch but prepare to be disturbed 7/10
