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."

"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."
