The People Next Door is an unflinching portrayal of a New York family torn asunder by drug abuse. Eli Wallach (Winter Kills) and Julie Harris (The Haunting) give compelling performances as parents whose marriage is pushed to the brink when their daughter Maxie (Deborah Winters) experiments with LSD and heroin, before experiencing a mental breakdown. Assuredly directed by David Greene (I Start Counting, Gray Lady Down), making his first American feature, and beautifully shot by Gordon Willis (Little Murders, The Godfather), The People Next Door is an unjustly forgotten melodrama, returning to UK screens for the first time since the days of VHS.

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.


All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.


We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
