THE BOY
2015, Chiller Films, SpectreVision, 105 min, USA, Dir: Craig William Macneill

Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) lives with his depressed dad (David Morse) in an isolated desert motel, with little to occupy his time other than removing roadkill from the nearby highway. When a mysterious drifter (Rainn Wilson) checks in, the boy’s fascination with death accelerates in this disturbing portrait of a 9-year-old sociopath. “It's great, it's creepy, it's got a jet-black third act that'll have you squirming in your seat, and just about everything - from the cast and the script to the set design and the cinematography - works.” - Scott Wampler, Badass Digest.
