Rosewood Lane is a 2011 thriller-horror film written and directed by Victor Salva, and stars Rose McGowan.[1] The film's story revolves around a radio talk show psychiatrist who moves back to her hometown and notices her neighborhood paper boy's unusual behavior. The official trailer of the film was released on the October 14, 2011.


The story follows Dr. Sonny Blake (McGowan), a radio talk show psychiatrist, when she moves back to her childhood home after her alcoholic father dies. Once back in her old neighborhood, she meets the local paperboy, a cunning, depraved sociopath who targeted her father and now targets her. When the boy starts calling her show and reciting eerie nursery rhymes, an unnerving game of cat-and-mouse begins. When the game escalates, she suddenly finds herself in an all-out war, one that forces her to redefine her ideas of good and evil, and has her fighting to stay alive.[2]


Critical reception[edit]

Sean Decker of the Dread Central gave Rosewood Lane 1 out of 5 stars, saying "the film is rife with baffling plot turns, characters who consistently make the most illogical of decisions, abandoned sub-plots (and players), plot holes a'plenty and a second act sequence that betrays the third reel's reveal (a reveal that ultimately makes little sense anyway)".[3]
