The Boy Behind The Door (2021) Ending (Spoilers)
After killing Ms. Burton’s client, calling a cop that Ms. Burton kills, halfway freeing Kevin, until it is discovered Ms. Burton put a shock collar on Kevin, and Bobby getting shot, they are free! Granted, there was a moment in the woods it seemed Ms. Burton’s axe would finally pierce Bobby, but a last-minute save by the cop Kevin called from the radio of the one who died, shoots and kills Ms. Burton, saves the kids! Thus, they realize they really have found their best friend for life. Especially since neither seem to be willing to let the other die, even if it could mean saving their own.
Does The Boy Behind The Door (2021) Have Prequel/ Sequel Potential?
Considering we don’t know if Ms. Burton was a lone wolf or part of a larger organization? It’s hard to say if they can make a sequel. As for a prequel? Let’s be real: A horror movie about a child sex trafficker is already a hard enough sell. Can you imagine Ms. Burton’s origin story being focused on?
