The Loneliest Boy In The World looks like a campy but lovable horror flick that reminds us of those that we grew up with in the 90s.
When the sheltered and unsocialized Oliver (Max Harwood) is tasked with making new friends after the sudden and devastating death of his mother, he decides that digging a few up (literally) might be his best bet. However, when he awakens the morning after his excavating escapades, he discovers that his newly acquired friends have mysteriously come to life overnight, launching them all into a series of misadventures as they try to keep their secret safe from neighbors, classmates, and social workers alike.
The film has been billed as “a modern fairytale – with zombies. A satire and a celebration of family values, of the imagery of horror films, of suburban life, of the American Dream and of the ultimate taboo; death.”
This looks like it will be a delightful film and it gives us classic horror vibes similar to films like Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands. It’s a unique story with a positive message about being able to find family in the most unconventional circumstances.
