Radio talk show therapist, Sonny Blake, moves back to her childhood home after her alcoholic father dies. Upon her return to the old neighborhood, Sonny discovers her neighbors are terrified of the local paperboy. She thinks this is ridiculous, until she encounters the boy herself, and learns the hard way that he is a cunning and dangerous sociopath. One who may have killed her father, and several others.
When the boy starts to call Sonny’s radio show, reciting eerie nursery rhymes, an unnerving game of cat-and-mouse begins, which makes Sonny doubt her own sanity. As the game escalates, she suddenly finds herself in a terrifying, all-out war that forces her to redefine her ideas of good and evil, and has her fighting to stay alive.
- Premieres at 2011's Screamfest LA.
- On the theme of the film, Writer/director Victor Salva was quoted saying: "Suburban nightmares are powerful because they are stories that as you watch them, you realize they could easily happen on your own street in your own town. That really gives thrillers like this the ability to get under your skin. And one of the great pleasures for me in finally putting this chiller in front of the cameras, is that Rosewood Lane harkens back to some of my favorite and classic thrillers like Carpenter's Halloween and Bob Clark's Black Christmas."
- Gina Phillips and Ray Wise were once said to be attached to the project.
- Victor Salva's return to horror since 2003's Jeepers Creepers II.
