Storyline

Although Mikey is just a little boy, he is capable of anything. Every family Mikey lives with has a series of unexplained "accidents" and hence he's moved from home to home. After his original family dies "accidentally," Mikey is taken by authorities and placed into the care of adoptive parents. Of course they eventually come to learn that there were no accidents.

An entertaining, but predictable take-off
18 October 1999 | by Adam ESee all my reviews

"Mikey" reminded me a lot of "Stepfather" with Terry O'Quinn, only a crazed kid instead of a grown-up. "Mikey" is a pretty disturbing, yet predictable film. The film is pretty violent; even a little girl is killed in the thing.

I thought Brian Bonsall did an extremely good job as the disturbed boy, when we're used to him playing that sweet kid. The film has a good measure of suspense and keeps you on the edge, but then they throw in an awful ending that you see coming a mile away. "Mikey" is worth watching if you like fun horror movies, but they could've done much better with the ending.
