"The Boy" lies before a striking premise.
"The Boy" is composed of a doll for nothing frightening, a house scary old and an unbalanced performance by Lauren Cohan (Maggie, "The Walking Dead"). Director William Brent Bell offers few moments of horror to satisfy fans of the genre, but the majority of the tension of the film is based on jump-scares and frights common in the world of horror, making us question Could not have been better with a development more coherent?
Lauren Cohan is "Greta" a young American teenager who escapes from a tortuous relationship and takes a baby-sitting job in a village far away from society and looking gloomy, as soon as she accepts the job, should already know that Brahms should receive a kiss goodnight and must take care not to break or a single rule.
After the explanations and others. Greta attempts to understand parents, and with the exception of Malcolm (Rupert Evans), she starts a single transition with the strange doll, where at the end unusually understands and follows the game in a natural and comprehensive way.
This installment, is apparently a prospect of lean mixture between the so scary "Annabelle" (in matters of the doll) and the 2006 film "When a Stranger Calls" (in matters of work babysitting), we often see references of not only these two tapes, also from his previous project "The Devil Inside".
From there, the film takes a couple of unnecessary turns and for fans of the horror the end despite breaking schemes of the genre, it is stupid and irrational, wasting the few merits as until then had managed to raise.
But considering its classification PG -13 and what it could offer us, we all knew that this was not going to make the best horror film of the year but could reach the label " The Best and Original Horror Film of 2016 , to the date". Cohan performance is uneven, the first hour is tortuous and tense and fails her fully know what happens , unfortunately like all horror movies today , the real excitement starts in the last half hour where the film takes a turn I look that even innovative and irreproachable, also feels like a disappointment.

"The Boy" lies before a striking premise.
This is a film that promised so much and just couldn't deliver throughout the 97 minute film. While promising a somewhat predictable but always scary story line of a demonic living doll, "The Boy" just seems to leave you craving more. Lauren Cohan does a rather good job of portraying the character "Greta Evans" even though Greta's character is slightly underdeveloped, which is a surprise if you follow Lauren's ability to build her character on "The Walking Dead". You are never quite sure of Greta's full background as a character other than she is running from some unknown catastrophic event in her characters past, until close to the end of the film.
The supporting cast does a mediocre job at supporting this small cast, while the story line slows to an uncontrollable bore fest during the middle of the film. The shining glory of "The Boy" is the fresh twist towards the end of the film, will leave that for you to find out. Even still the ending is exciting and surprising but very short lived.
Over all "The Boy" is a lackluster movie sure to NOT BE the next classic horror film of this century.
The Boy (2016) was for the first 1 hour a very simple and smooth rolling thriller film, though once it hit the last almost 18 minutes of the film the instant feeling of "what the f? did they do to this film" came over us. The ending of the film was the death of the movie, the acting, the story, everything just went to crap. The Boy (2016) had a simple thriller vibe going on, it wasn't great but it wasn't bad either then all of a sudden they through in the "let's hurry and destroy a movie" vibe and well the end.
If you watch The Boy (2016), watch your clock and once it hits 1 hour turn the film off to leave with a feeling that you watched something fairly done, the ending made us wish we'd never have watch it.
