The Boy

"Utterly hypnotic." What isssss this?! I'm not exactly sure if this is going to be any good, but it's definitely very intriguing. The first trailer for an indie psychological horror/thriller called The Boy has arrived. Craig William Macneill's The Boy is a "chilling, intimate portrait of a 9-year-old sociopath's growing fascination with death." The cast includes Rainn Wilson and David Morse, as well as Jared Breeze as "the boy". There are some very intriguing shots in this, but it generally looks like a mesmerizing character study with minimal dialogue. Bloody-Disgusting said in their review, "We’ve seen killer kid films before. But maybe not one as psychologically ratcheting as The Boy." That line sells me more than this trailer. Give it a look below.

Here's the first official trailer for Craig William Macneill's The Boy, originally from Yahoo:

The Boy

It's the summer of 1989. 9-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father John (David Morse) are the proprietors of The Mt. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted's mother left, John has drifted into despondency—leaving Ted to fend for himself. In this isolation, unchecked by the bounds of parenting, Ted’s darker impulses begin to manifest. The arrival of a mysterious drifter, William Colby (Rainn Wilson), captivates young Ted and the two form a unique friendship - setting the stage for Ted's final, unnerving metamorphosis. The Boy is written & directed by Craig William Macneill, based on a novel by Clay McLeod Chapman. The film first premiered at SXSW this year, and will arrive in select theaters starting August 14th this summer. What do you make of that?
