I was curious about this one. When I watched the trailer it actually looked pretty interesting. The director William Brent Bell wrote and directed one of my guiltiest pleasures called Stay Alive (the horror movie about dying in real life if you die in the video game). Sadly he was also the one behind The Devil Inside. The writer here I have never heard of before. Haha oh what a creeper! Wow she is... read more

2016 Films - Best to Worst (61 movies items)

" As a horror film, The Boy is not entirely successful. For that it's not scary enough, but that doesn't mean that it's not an entertaining film nonetheless. The Boy is entertaining because it's pretty damned weird. It's a slow moving film in which not a lot is really happening. The performances are good though, and the absurdity of the plot is amusing. I will not say a lot about it, as there's are a few surprising moments in it. It never got really good, but it was fun."

"Daha öncelerinde de bir kere; ölen çocuklarını, sanki ölmemişcesine bakan ve onu yaşatmaya çalışan aile dramı tadında bir film izlediğimi hatırlıyorum. Çok yenilikçi gelmedi ama film ilerledikçe, konu biraz daha oturdukça bir nebze olsun heycanlanmadım diyemem. Süresiyle sıkmayan, merak uyandıran yapımlardan biri. Bu kadar az karakter ve oyuncuyla daha fazlasını yapmak o kadar da mümkün değil..."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 38min. First Viewing The Boy is surprisingly effective, until the bonkers last act. The slow build tension is quite good, as well as Lauren Cohan's strong central performance, but the last reveal is so hilariously odd that it zaps out the quality storytelling and replaces it with the stupidest of slasher-logic. Still, before the collapse, its pretty good. If they could've had a better ending, it would've workeed. "

"Pretty basic modern horror flick. Offered nothing new. Only one jumpscare worked for me, otherwise same old same old."

From The Superb To The Crap - Movies Seen In 2016 (284 movies items)

"This movie presents us with an interesting premise from the start. A young American woman takes a job as a nanny to an elderly couple's child in Britain. Only when she gets to their large, creepy mansion does she learn the "boy" is really a doll that the couple treats as if it is alive and their son. Much of what ensues after this is fairly predictable. We know the doll is going to end up doing creepy things, or at least we'll be led to believe this is the case. We also know there will be someth"
