Verdict on Good Boy
Good Boy is a horror thriller following a student that starts dating a millionaire heir. The first strange thing is that he lives with a person dressed up as a dog. Despite putting that aside, she finds herself facing an even more dangerous situation.
This is an odd movie, to say the least. It creates an unusual relationship between two young people before showing the darker side. There is a massive feeling of unease going on throughout the movie. This takes the dramatic turn to an impending dread created throughout the movie.
The movie is easily one of the strangest movies you will see this year. Although it also ends up being one of the more disturbing movies of the year. If you want something unique, uncomfortable and disturbing, this is the one for you.
Where to Watch: Blue Finch Film Releasing presents Good Boy on digital platforms 11 September.
Final Thoughts – Good Boy is an unsettling, disturbing and twisted movie.
