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.“
