Don’t trust ‘The Boy’ in this chilling first trailer


The first trailer has now been released for the chilling horror thriller, The Boy, and you can view the footage below.

The Boy played at the SXSW festival earlier this year, and received some strong word of mouth, and now the first trailer gives us a taste of the horrors in store. The trailer is subtle, but it is clear there is a very dark, very disturbing undertone to the film, one which I am sure will be explored to its fullest.

The Boy is written and directed by Craig William Macneill, and the cast includes David Morse, Rainn Wilson and Jared Breeze as Ted, otherwise known as The Boy.


It’s the summer of 1989. Nine-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father, John (David Morse), are the proprietors of The Mtn. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted’s mother left, John has drifted into despondency—becoming a living ghost, haunting the motel—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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
