‘The Boy’ – Review

‘The Boy’ – Review

By Lynn Sorel

Rating: 8 out of 10

Synopsis: An American nanny is shocked that her new English family’s boy is actually a life-sized doll. After she violates a list of strict rules, disturbing events make her believe that the doll is really alive. 

Our Thoughts: ‘The Boy’ appears to be your run-of-the-mill haunted doll horror story, but it is far from it and so much more! 

The film begins with nanny Gretchen going to start her job caring for a little boy named Brahms. She is from American and trying to get away from her abusive ex-boyfriend by getting as far away from him as she can. The first of many odd issues with the family is that the couple are much older than you’d expect for the parents of an eight year old boy. Then when we actually meet him, the boy is actually a doll. Gretchen believes that they are bat-shit crazy, as any normal person would. She agrees to do a ridiculous daily routine of caring for him for the next several months. As they are leaving, his mother says to her “I’m so sorry.” Clearly a bad sign of what is to come. read more

‘You Are Not Alone’ – Review

By Lynn Sorel

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

Synopsis: Natalie is a college graduate visiting her hometown over the 4th of July. The night she arrives, she is stalked by a sociopathic killer. 

 

Our Thoughts: ‘You Are Not Alone’ is a truly unique horror film. Using first person POV to tell the story, you are seeing the story from the point of view of the final girl for the first time in horror.  

 

Natalie comes home for the 4th of July weekend and is having fun with her friends. Meanwhile, the story of a killer on the loose is all over the news. The first half is a bit of a slow burn, but enjoyable none-the-less, as thee characters are developed. read more
