Entertainment Weekly | 'The Boy' Review


The creepy kid/evil doll genre of horror movie has a long and venerable lineage, perhaps because it’s so easy to project fantasies and insecurities onto Uncanny Valley-straddling plastic figurines. We always want dolls to be more alive than they are, even if that means turning them into Chucky. The Boy, from director William Brent Bell, aims to set itself squarely in the fictional canon of Chucky and its brethren, but it ends up trying to do so much that it forgets to scare us.

The story is too old to be commented.

I hate dolls. I hate creepy dolls even more. And I can't stand creepy dolls in average movies.
