The Paperboy 1994
R | 1h 34min | Horror, Thriller | 16 November 1994 (USA)
A paper-boy murders an old lady only to lure her family from the city out to the country. As each day passes the paper-boy tries to make friends with the family. Once the family sees what a sicko he is, they banish him from their lives. Then the terror begins.
This film is fantastic. It has it all. A crazy child, a badly-dressed school teacher and gratuitous chuck taylor footage.
From the very beginning I knew I’d struck gold with this gem. Marc Marut is amazing as the looney-tune Johnny and the scene where he says, ‘Bow wow’ before bashing a dog to death is truly horrific.
Well done Marc! You are a great actor – don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
