New The Boy Movie Received Less Than Ok Reviews From Major Critics So Far
STX Entertainment served up their new horror/thriller movie, “The Boy,” into theaters today, January 22nd, 2016, and we’ve got some reviews in from a couple of the major,top movie critics in the biz, and it’s not such great news. Although, I have seen worse. They gave it some 40 and 50 grades out of a possible 100 at the Metacritic.com site.
The film stars: Ben Robson, Diana Hardcastle, James Russell, Jim Norton, Lauren Cohan and Rupert Evans. We’ve added statements from the scarce, 2 critics that managed to give it a look-see.
Katie Rife over at The A.V. Club, gave it a just average 50 grade, claiming: “At least, maybe The Boy can lead some novices to better, more original horror movies.”
Then Joe Leydon over at Variety, gave it a 40 grade. He stated: “Despite the assiduous grinding of plot mechanics by William Brent Bell (“The Devil Inside”) and scripter Stacey Menear, the movie never fully distracts its audience from the inherent silliness of its premise, and, as a result, is more likely to elicit laughs and rude remarks rather than screams and rooting interest.” Stay tuned.
