The Neighbor

Sometimes it's better not to know


John is living in Cutter, Mississippi with his girlfriend Rosie. They have one neighbor Troy, who is creepy as hell. One day Rosie idly looks through the telescope in their living room and is shocked to spy Troy in his yard chasing an injured man who he brutally clubs to the ground. She is even more shocked when Troy turns and appears to look straight at her. Later that evening John returns home to find that Rosie is gone. Seeing that no bags have been packed nor money taken John senses that something is wrong. But when he spots the telescope pointing at Troy’s house he puts two and two together, and resolves to break in next door to see if he can find her.

But John could never prepare for the night to come. For in the basement of Troy’s house he finds hell on earth. Prisoners kept in cages….and just when he thinks it couldn’t get any worse he discovers that Rosie is Troy’s latest captive…
