The Boy [Movie Review]

7:30 AM

It has been quite some time that I wrote reviews on movies.
Not that I quit watching movies - it was just that I was quite busy and also the fact that I hadn't been lucky to get the free tix to the movies.

Every child needs to feel loved
Have you watched the trailer for the movie "The Boy"? 
Dubbed to be the most horror movie of 2016, I would say "Nah".
SYNOPSIS
Greta accepted a temporary job as a nanny to escape his abusive boyfriend. But to her surprise, she will not be taking care of a small boy. Instead, she will be taking care of Brahms, a porcelain doll that Mr. and Mrs. Heelshire treated as a living child.

The Heelshire attending to Brahms
The Heelshire mentioned that the real Brahms died in a fire when he was 8 years old and has been changing nannies because the incompatibility between the two. As the Heelshire were leaving on a holiday, they cautioned Greta to follow all the rules as Brahms is not a normal kid. 

But Greta managed to ignore all the rules and did as she pleases around the house. Then strange things started to happen to her including the sound of a child crying and the doll seems to able to move on its own.
Confiding to Malcolm about the mysterious incidents, she was told that Brahms used to have a friend, a young girl that later found dead with her head crushed.

Can you feed me?
When Cole (Greta's boyfriend) managed to track her down to the Heelshire's residence, he insisted that Greta went home with him. During a quarrel among Greta, Malcolm, and Cole, Cole smashed the doll into pieces and the house started to shake. 

Will Greta be able to escape from The Boy?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.7/5.0. The twist certainly turns the movie around. What was a normal horror movie turns exciting towards the last scenes. 

The Act: 4.7/ 5.0. No complaint about their acting. Just nice - not overly a wonderful act but not bad too.

Will I Watch It Again: I probably will if the companies are great.
