Greta (Lauren Cohan) takes a job as a nanny for a young boy in an English village. Upon her arrival, she discovers that the child is actually a life-size doll that the parents have been using as a coping mechanism since the death of their eight-year-old son two decades earlier. After the initial shock wears off, Greta decides to stay and work for the couple, but when she breaks a few strictly enforced rules of their "son's" care, she begins to suspect the toy may not be a doll at all. Directed by William Brent Bell. Rupert Evans, Jim Norton, Diana Hardcastle, Ben Robson, and James Russell co-star.~Erin Demers

Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The Boy has its suspense, drama, a bit of everything you would expect from a horror thriller type of movie. Though I expected a bit more, I overall enjoyed it and have made this movie a part of my video collection. Since my purchase, others have viewed "The Boy" and enjoyed it. A good buy and worth the watch now and future viewings. Like most movies, you will always see something you didn't notice the first time. Happy Viewing! Enjoy!
The movie starts with a lonely castle in the middle of nowhere. The tension starts building up right away. It is true that there are some other movies also with a similar plot but I enjoyed it from start to end thoroughly. The sound effects were awesome and will give chills at times. Though it will look similar to some other movies but at the end there is a twist which makes it stand out. I liked this movie a lot, although it may not be considered as super excellent it is not anything less than good.
Even though this probably won't win any awards, I found it to be better then a good number of the movies that come out in this genre. Compared to most, this actually seemed to have a bit of creepiness to it that is usually missing in a majority of the movies I've seen. Don't get me wrong, its no high end thriller but its definitely not something that was thrown together haphazardly either. If you enjoy a decent creepy movie now and then, this one will probably be for you.
Mysterious deaths and crazy grieving parents. A good film in general with believable acting yet not outstandingly scary. I liked the mood and the setting of the movie (an old huge home in the English countryside). It is good to see also Lauren Cohan from The Walking Dead as the main character. The plot is interesting and congruent all along although some elements are difficultly fitted.
Saw this in theaters and was happy to add it to my collection as soon as the bluray was available for purchase. Was just as much fun the second time around! Watched it with two different people, neither of whom are horror lovers, and they both liked it too. Great bluray picture, nice and crisp with good color saturation. Highly recommended!
I wasn’t expecting much from The Boy, but boy was I surprised. Lauren Cohan did a good job in this one. It’s a bit slow at first, but picks up with the suspense. The twist really had me surprised as well. Some good sound effects too and nice details on the massive house. I would definitely recommend. I liked the intro with the creepy dolls too.
Pretty good. But like most Doll horror movies kinda lets you down in the end unless It's running around like Chucky talking and messing things up. Creeped out my Wife, but like I said what Doll doesn't . They put effort and kept away from " Typical Hollywood Jump scares" so I dug it. Just don't expect a high end well filmed version Chucky.
