mikey (1992 review)
Get the freshest reviews, news, and more delivered right to your inbox! His main choice is to kill people that he decides are mean to him. The film is worth a watch (if you like slasher flicks or creepy kid films that is), but is far from perfect. Again, unless you’re REALLY a stickler to absolute perfect detail. Mikey is a cold blooded killer, and it doesn't take long for him to aim his sights on his new adoptive family and anyone else who stands in his way. Mikey is adopted by another unsuspecting family after he kills his first family. Acting angelic at times while seething with hatred at other points, young Brian Bonsall shows much range in the lead role. La industria cinematográfica parecía haber olvidado y dejado atrás el furor de los niños que protagonizaron películas de terror en los años 70 y crearon (entre muchos otros) un producto que funcionó y gustó bastante: la inocencia navideña americana. Unless you are OCD in detail, nobody is going to complain about the FX or lack thereof. hollywood is a truly sick place. This low budget horror flick was released to video in November of 1992, and it was frighteningly good. Just below that it reads "Ticket Confirmation#:" followed by a 10-digit number. Keeping track of all the slashers I've seen made between 1974 and 1995, organized chronologically [not ranked by preference]. Brian Bonsall did a wonderful job playing the psychotic killer. All in all, can Mikey be recommended? Mimi Craven, who plays Mikey’s mom, is also from the Elm Street franchise, and the film plays this up a little bit in its tagline, that states: “Remember, Jason and Freddie (sic) Were Kids Once, Too…” To call Mikey a slasher is a bit misleading, although the blood does flow pretty good during some of the murder set pieces. The 1992 film Mikey is certainly indebted to this pedigree, but the film’s screenplay by Jonathan Glassner more accurately drinks from the creative well of The Stepfather from five years earlier. The film didn't have much of a story to it but it was pretty dark & evil in most places! Because of his very young age, he isn't suspected of course so the police closes up the case as a robbery with deceased victims. This movie was too violent and twisted for my liking. This movie wastes no time establishing the 9 year-old child as a homicidal maniac as he murders his whole adopted family through various means. I loved seeing Ashley Laurence acting again,though. The film blends the elements of drama, comedy and horror very well, with dramatic tension between the characters, witty one liners and heart pounding horror. Film data from TMDb. Although they were believable, this movie is still more entertaining than scary. Kirsty from Hellraiser flexes some acting muscle as Mikey's concerned teacher. So please head to your local video store and rent this great film....If you dare. Jul 23, 2009. It’s more of a psychological thriller with strong horror elements. The main issue hindering my enjoyment of Mikey was that early 90s grimy feeling I get from bad horror films. All because he always gets in trouble instead of his sister.

Brian Bonsall (Family Ties TV series, Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series) kicks serious ass in the role of Mikey. | Brian Bonsall Josie Bissett Ashley Laurence Mimi Craven Whit Hertford John Diehl Mark Venturini Laura Robinson Sanford Gibbons Kathleen Bonsall Steve Hart Keeley Marie Gallagher Peppi Sanders David Rogge Lyman Ward, 90 mins   They say the classics never die, and that is true in the case of A …, Universal tested the horror waters on September 6, 1925, at the Curran Theatre in San …. the folks mad about Cuties would love Mikey! External Reviews This early 90's chiller is about a 5 (!) Mikey is the heel and there’s no other way to look at it. I've heard a lot of positive stuff about this before actually seeing it and I can see why a lot of horror fans enjoyed this little gem. The bread and butter of this movie is Mikey. It has absolute schlock as well as masterpieces, along with dozens of sub-genres. I'd say he's gifted. With Brian Bonsall, Josie Bissett, Ashley Laurence, Mimi Craven. Good flick, but could be better. "David: "Why? Final verdict: if you like slashers, watch it. Mikey is dark, very, very dark, but once again, that could be the point. He is adopted by a loving young couple who can't have kids of their own, and they think he is amazing. It is a well made movie with almost perfect pace, but one can't deny it is disturbing to see a child doing those horrible things. The tormented foster dad looks like young Joe Biden, and I'm here for it. All the films from my exploitation lists, bundled into one mega-super-list-to-rule-them-all! This film was banned in the UK because of the James Bulger case & still today. One of the forgotten films of those to feel the wrath of the 80's and 90's censorship madness, Mikey has a more genuinely sinister feel to it than the others. I came across this quite recently and was surprised to find that this movie is still banned in the UK, because of the Jamie Bulger case and this movie unfortunately got caught up in all the mist, and I can kinda see why, but it would be nice to see a long awaited belated release of this movie in the UK market as it is a fun little gem. "Mikey" is a pretty disturbing, yet predictable film. 90’s horror!! The acting in this movie is spectacular. I guess my sick deviant mind just craved more blood. It's a shame that it's shot so flat and the acting is trash because I love this story and I love that it doesn't hold back. No kills actually stand out as it is a little kid doing the kills and it’s not like he can man handle a coed…. © Letterboxd Limited. Then again, that also was most likely by design because if it did, it would have legitimately fried the actress. Brian Bonsall was cute and ferocius in this, and he did a ver good job of portraying the little weirdo. The 'killer kid' concept has been done time and time again, but Mikey really pulls it off. They were replaying Mikey so I then had to make a decision of rewatching this or find something else.
