Via B&S About Movies -The Boy (2016)

There’s a moment early on in The Boy where you’re either going to think it’s the dumbest movie you’ve ever seen or completely brilliant. I err on the side of the latter, loving the audaciousness that demands that you believe that a porcelain doll could be alive. Director William Brent Bell brings you along for […]
