The Boy was such a surprise for me!! I guess I was expecting a new take on Chuckie, and that is not at all what I got! I was on the edge of my seat the whole movie waiting to see if or what was going to happen. The movie does move at a slow pace, but the thought of what you might see kept me interested. There were some smart moments here! All in all a nice surprise for scary movie fans. Although, I might consider this one more suspense then horror. I appreciated the mystery elements although the acting was not great. I enjoyed the movie with my teen.
