Review: The Good Son is probably one of my all time favorite horror/thriller movies of all time. This movie was absolutely amazing, like seriously everything about this film was perfect. I saw a few reviews of people saying that they didn’t like the movie and didn’t even give a good reason to back up their statement. Ignore the negative reviews you see about this movie (if you do see any) and give it a watch. The Good Son was highly enjoyable and will absolutely keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time.
The story to The Good Son was great. It mainly focuses on a boy named Mark who has to go live with his aunt and uncle because his mother just died. During his stay with the family he starts to realize that his cousin is evil and tries to convince everyone that the cousin is bad. The story takes sibling rivalry to the next level and is filled with some great thrills. How was the acting? The acting in The Good Son was absolutely fantastic and contained probably the two most talented young actors to ever be in a film. Elijah Wood was amazing in this movie, but Macaulay Culkin was fantastic and completely dominated his role. He really did a great job and showed that he can play any type of role. It was a great overall acting performance from the cast, the acting was very believable and can really draw you in to the movie.
The Good Son isn’t completely terrifying, there actually isn’t that many scares at all. This may be because the movie isn’t necessarily a horror film, but it does have aspects of a horror film. Although, the movie can make you jump, there are a few scenes that can make you jump and make your eyes pop out of your head. The Good Son thrives off the great thrills that the movie provides and the movie is filled with them. Don’t mess with Culkin!Overall I absolutely loved The Good Son and thought it was highly enjoyable. The story was great and gives us some great thrills. The acting was off the charts, Elijah Wood and Macaulay Culkin were fantastic in their roles and really made this movie enjoyable. Now The Good Son isn’t completely terrifying, but it can make you jump a few times. This might be because this movie wasn’t necessarily a horror movie, but it does contain horror aspects which will make this an enjoyable experience for you to watch if you haven’t already. The Good Son is a must watch!
