In no way a sequel to the Elisha Cuthbert-starring comedy The Girl Next Door, The Boy Next Door takes the already creepy premise of a mother lusting after one of her son’s friends and kicks it up a notch. When Jennifer Lopez’s Claire gives in to her impulses, but then tries to sweep it under the rug, things take a Fatal Attraction-esque turn for the worse. The Boy Next Door opens on January 23, but The A.V. Club has an opportunity for you to attend a free, early screening on January 20. For your chance to receive passes, follow the link here and enter your information. The screening is first come, first serve, so be sure to arrive early. You can find the official synopsis and trailer for the film below.

“Jennifer Lopez leads the cast in The Boy Next Door, a psychological thriller that explores a forbidden attraction that goes much too far. Shortly after her divorce, Claire (Lopez) meets a young man who may be more sinister than he appears. Directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and written by Barbara Curry, the film also stars Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth.”
