Mikey (1992)

3.5 / 5
Tagline: With Evil, Size Doesn't Matter.
Directed by: Dennis Dimster
Written by: Jonathan Glassner
Actors include: Brian Bonsall, Josie Bissett, Ashley Laurence
Genre: Horror
Length: 90 minutes
Banned: UK
Country: USA

If you are familiar with "The Good Son" then this is sort of an extreme version. Okay fine so they don't share that much in common except this came out after and features an evil kid, in that respect I suppose it's a "The Bad Seed" influenced piece or something? Anyhow Mikey is a foster kid, he's taken into several homes only his new family members all seem to be dying in accidents. This wasn't a scary film by any stretch but certainly a fun twist on the slasher genre even if it's been done before. I should add that this was banned in the UK and isn't very available but if you get a chance to see it you'll find out why!
