Now available stateside On Demand, The Evil Next Door centers on Shirin (Dilan Gwyn), a woman who attempts to protect her boyfriend’s son (Eddie Eriksson Dominguez) from a supernatural entity. Filmmakers Tord Danielsson and Oskar Mellander discuss the challenges of making Shirin an initially unlikable character and elaborate on their visual approach to the thriller.
