  1. sebekk's rating of the film The Boy

    Brahms, do be a good boy and do as I say ... Please?

  2. Rafael Zen's rating of the film The Boy

    You know, I really though I was going to hate this - but then I kinda didn't.

  3. Graham Ball's rating of the film The Boy

  4. Igor Ramos's rating of the film The Boy

    This film sucked so bad that it didn't even deliver the plot twist that I was expecting from the get-go: that the the hunky handyman was, in fact, Brahms, and that he was messing around with the girl. Instead we got a silly man/creature that lived hidden in the walls (?) but was somehow able to walk around the house and move the doll and objects from their place. Hugh, pity. At times the film looked eye-catching.

  5. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Boy

    The bad boy. Not that shivering for a thriller, not that gore for a horror movie... but the psychologic madness around the boy doll and his parents is interesting enough to deserve a better approach.

  6. Justerodeusintherain's rating of the film The Boy

    This had alot of potential, an interesting concept and was excited to see Maggie from the walking dead in something else. However the ending ruined it turned dramatic and ridiculous as so many often do. Shame

  7. Martin De Martin's rating of the film The Boy

    Da una premessa così inquietante sarebbe stato lecito aspettarsi qualche salto in più sulla poltrona o quantomeno un'atmosfera degna. Purtroppo William B. Bell si dimostra per l'ennesima volta incapace di costruire un qualsiasi elemento perturbante reale nei suoi film horror, tutti molto interessanti sulla carta ma alla prova dei fatti assolutamente vuoti. Un horror usa e getta, da guardare e dimenticare.

  8. Zineu Simionato's rating of the film The Boy

    They had a great idea but it was poorly made. Some fun parts but it ended like any other mainstream horror movie, predictable. +1 for the ideia +1 star for the plot twist

  10. RumbleFish's rating of the film The Boy

    Non cade mai nel pacchiano, trasmette tensione e inquietudine, riesce a risolversi con una fine degna di questo nome. Non ci avrei scommesso due lire e invece.

  11. Evan Schafer's rating of the film The Boy

    In this very suspenseful, Hitchcockian thriller, I was quite literally watching every frame, beginning to end, because I was so entranced by a very misleading first two acts. By the time that we learn what is actually happening, so much has been fed to you that you feel lied to and somewhat violated, but moreover shocked than anything else. A great twist and some solid acting on all parts. Worth every minute.

  12. Quesera,sera's rating of the film The Boy

  13. Adham T. Fusama's rating of the film The Boy

    I actually enjoy the movie. For me, the twist is pretty delicious. It turns from possessed-doll-horror movie to something more interesting.

  15. Leroy Martin's rating of the film The Boy

  16. Marcelo Fornari's rating of the film The Boy

  17. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film The Boy

    Not the most original horror, but well crafted and with some decent scares. Brahms, the doll, is creepy and the acting is pretty solid - Laura Cohen and Rupert Evans have good chemistry - except for Ben Robson as Cole, whose character comes off as unrealistic and not very threatening. I thought it would be cliche, but the filmmakers did a good job of misdirecting my assumptions about character motivations and plot.

  18. Josh the Bookseller's rating of the film The Boy

    2.5. It's a fun, (mostly) self-aware tale, unfolding at a nice pace with flashes of inexplicable atmosphere. On-the-nose, often goofy, but if you've seen the trailer or even read the premise, you know exactly what you're getting into, plus it's maybe even better than that. Oh shit waddup

  19. Luca Soldati's rating of the film The Boy

    Regia mediocre e narrazione che non mantiene la tensione come dovrebbe. La trama cala nella seconda metà e questo vanifica quanto costruito prima. La regia non aiuta, con un forte uso dei jump scares. Ambientazione buona e alcune sequenze riuscite.La discreta idea di base è stata mal sfruttata. Personaggi e dialoghi dimenticabili, ma bambola inquietante e ben "caratterizzata". Comparto tecnico mediocre e senza guizzi

  20. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film The Boy

    Sciapissimo. La premessa è interessante ma poi il film si ferma lì, proponendo la solita sfilza di jump scares che ormai non fanno paura a nessuno, incubi pecorecci e le classiche case da film dell'orrore dove entra chiunque si trovi a passare nelle vicinanze. Il finale è la ciliegina sulla torta di quel poco che si era costruito durante l'ora e mezza precedente. Peccato, visto e rivisto.

  21. Diderot's rating of the film The Boy

    This movie is hilarious. I only wish the filmmakers had more faith in just how stupid they could be, in which case it might have been a masterpiece.

  22. Roxas Montezuma's rating of the film The Boy

    trying to be an original movie and failed..the plot twist and Maggie doesn't help this movie from falling
