Mikey: Creepy unnerving thriller

Mikey is a horrifying thriller telling the story of a 10 year old boy with more than slight psychotic tendancies. Many people say the concept is far fetched, I'd be inclined to agree but not to an extent where I couldn't take it seriously. One fascinating fact about Mikey is that it's still to this day prohibited in the United Kingdom. It was banned due to the James Bulger murder, but alike the accused Childs Play 3 (1991) there are no similarities at all. Most movies are re-reviewed for release but due to red tape Mikey never has been and likely won't be. It's one of those films that gets under your skin and succeeds in doing so from the opening through to the closing credits. I'm not saying Mikey is a good film because it's not, but it does what it sets out to do and you have to give it credit for that. The Good: Kid does a great job Very unsettling The Bad: Still a rather average effort Things I Learnt From This Movie: This is reason 7878952 why I don't want children Ashley Laurence should have had a better career Girls liking "Bad boys" when will they learn?

Time For a Re-Examination

A seemingly innocent and sweet little boy causes murder and mayhem in his new neighborhood and falls for the teenage girl next-door. As others have pointed out, this film has sort of the same feel as "The Stepfather", except the killer is now a little boy instead of a seemingly caring new dad. Of course, "The Stepfather" is the better movie, but that's no secret. I do think the film needs to be brought into the light. I had not heard of it until a book by T. S. Kord made me aware, and then when I went to watch it on Hulu, I found the picture quality was not the greatest and the film was cut for full-screen. With horror veterans Mimi Craven and Ashley Laurence, as well as Lyman Ward, it seems like this would be a good film for Scream Factory to pick up.

Fair If Not Taken Seriously

This film was actually banned in Britain since it was due for release in the same year as two ten-year-old boys abducted, tortured and murdered a two-year-old child. To this day, I don't understand that decision since nothing Mikey does reaches the scale of what those two sadistic monsters did nor does Mikey ever attempt to harm complete innocents but chooses his victims from people who have done him 'wrong'. Anyway, I've finally managed to get my hands on a copy and I have to say, I'm quite glad I did. It's definitely not a film to be taken seriously but it can be rather funny if viewed as a dark comedy. Obviously, there's huge plot holes such as how a ten-year-old can move from place-to-place without anyone checking on his background and why these people were able to adopt him in a matter of days. However, there is something slightly humorous in watching the rather stupid adults be played by a young, calculating boy.
