Kiki’s Film Review: The Boy (Warning Contains Spoilers and Superspoilers!)

The Boy (previously known as The Inhabitant) is a 2016 horror film[5] directed by William Brent Bell and written by Stacey Menear. The film stars Lauren Cohan and Rupert Evans. Filming began on March 10, 2015, in Victoria, British Columbia. The film was released by STXfilms on January 22, 2016. It is an international co-production between China and the United States.[2]

I watched this 2016 film today and was surprised by how much I liked it. It got a relatively low grade on Rotten Tomatoes but who doesn’t enjoy creepy doll movies.

I found this film to be really well done, script was good, camera, direction, acting all very good. I thought it was intelligent and filmed beautifully. It lumbers along but it was really satisfying.


A sequel is due. I strongly suspect that the caretaker-Malcom is actually the son of the elderly couple and my be Brahms himself or a second son. Well worth a view.
