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?
