From Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision and Chiller Films comes a disturbing new vision exploring the birth of evil.

On March 1st, Chiller Film’s enigmatic psychological thriller The Boy (review) makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut courtesy of Scream Factory.

Starring Jared Breeze, Rainn Wilson (Cooties, “The Office”), and David Morse, the release also includes a behind the scenes featurette as a bonus feature.

In the summer of 1989, nine-year old Ten Henley (Jared Breeze, Cooties) and his father John (David Morse, True Detective, World War Z) 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’s an entertaining film for fans of Michael Hanneke style material. (Funny Games, Benny’s Video, etc.) The movie’s dull and tedious for the sake of it, meant to depict a sense of loneliness and depravity, and while the end’s a little on the nose for my liking, I did enjoy it overall. Might be worth a watch, but it’s not for everyone.
