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

Nothing about this movie attracted me when I first saw ads for it but, boy, am I glad i watched it on a pure lark. I expected a generic offering but got so much more. In fact, what "The Boy" does best is play with your expectations and then pull the rug out from under you.

“Nothing about this movie attracted me when I first saw ads for it but, boy, am I glad i watched it on a pure lark. I expected a generic offering but got so much more. In fact, what "The Boy" does best is play with your expectations and then pull the rug out from under you.

The first act builds itself up like a well structured doll horror movie, packed to the brim with foreshadowing and a well executed sense of nervous anticipation only to unexpectedly turn more into a psychological piece during it's second act. At this point you begin to notice that you shouldn't take things at face value even as it lures you into believing more and more in the supernatural as it goes into its third act. Again I found myself expecting one thing only to get another!

My Top 10 Least Favourite Movies of 2016 (10 movies items)

"This comes to us from the director of The Devil Inside – still the worst movie of 2012 in my opinion – so I very quickly abandoned all hope! It's about an American nanny who's shocked to find that the boy of the English family she's charged with is actually a life-sized doll – a moment that left me just as baffled, wondering why she didn't leave immediately, as this couple was clearly insane. But of course, as the film progresses, it turns out the doll might be alive. And then a further tw"

" 25.12.Walking Dead -muikkeli hoitaa posliininukkea vaihtelevalla pieteetillä. Tietysti hämärässä kartanossa skutsin keskellä. Kohtalaista tunnelmointia, jota lopun jämäslasher vähän vesittää."

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (315 movies items)

"2.10. Oli jokseenkin erilainen tämä The Boy kuin oletin. Saatanalliset voimat ovat minua kahdesti estäneet katsomasta elokuvaa varttia pidempään. Joten totta munassa se täytyy väen vängällä katsoa! Pidin jopa yllättävän paljon elokuvan luomasta tunnelmasta, vaikka kliseisillä raiteilla liikuttiin alusta alkaen. Toki loppuun täytyi säästää genrelle pakollinen twisti, joka ei ollut sekään sieltä huonoimmasta päästä."

2016 Films - Best to Worst (68 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. "
