The Boy Behind the Door
Directed by Justin Powell, David Charbonier
A night of unimaginable terror awaits twelve-year-old Bobby and his best friend, Kevin, 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. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

This COULD HAVE been so good! The boys were great and the story was original which is quite a feat these days. But the writing was subpar and the shoehorned-in political messaging cheapened the whole thing (mind you, I would be just as upset about this regardless of the "side" getting the dig). It was so unnecessary and immature to do that.
So frustrated with this. So many opportunities to hurt the adults that wasn't done & the floors should have been squeekier.
Quite good, the kid actors did a very good job, script pretty good, I think it captured what kids would do. Interesting movie for that reason, you could guess what adults might do, but what would kids do?
too many missed opportunities to slice ankles. still a bop
fantastic film well done to the boys tremendous acting
