The Loneliest Boy In The World LINK

Oliver (Max Harwood) isn't just socially awkward. He grew up in total isolation, protected from the world by his mother (Carol Anne Watts), who barely allows him to leave their house (the exterior of which is conventional, the interior of which is cupcake-frosting-pink, from floor to ceiling). Disaster ensues when Oliver's mom dies in a gruesome accident, leaving Oliver's fate in the hands of a bitter over-it social worker (Ashley Benson) and an even more bitter and over-it psychologist (Evan Ross). They tell him that unless he makes a friend in the next week he will have to be sent to an asylum. Oliver is a naive boy, almost like Brendan Fraser emerging from the bomb shelter in "Blast from the Past." He sets out to make a friend. He talks with Chloe (Tallulah Haddon), a new girl in town, but freaks her out with his life story. He visits his mother's grave and reports to her on what's going on on her favorite soap opera. He watches "Alf" every night.

The Loneliest Boy in the World


Delivered with charm and confidence by director Martin Owen, this is a pretty wild ride that draws from horror-comedy classics but manages to forge its own weird world. Admittedly an acquired taste, The Loneliest Boy in the World should please fans of the likes of An American Werewolf in London, Swiss Army Man, or Life After Beth.

A sweet, wholesome, endearing modern fairy tale filled with quirky characters. You can tell from the start that it's going to be more a silly teen dramedy with shades of horror. It starts off with sort of sitcom feel to it but with strange occurrences creating an otherworldly feel which is enough to pull me in. The effort put into the overall aesthetic and the characters' make up are admirable. Perhaps, it runs a bit too long for the material it has, I did think it could have ended sooner. Overall, an okay watch.

Dylan had stayed in the main home with that beautiful view for a creative retreat. It inspired him to start writing the film because it is so surreal, so otherworldly, being up in the mountain, looking out and seeing no civilisation. That was a shoo-in, we were definitely going to get that Airbnb. For the rest of it, we are just lucky to live in such a beautiful province. It was such a fun time. We knew we were looking for vast landscapes because Vancouver is very much a city. We went into rural areas where we knew we could find elements like an old truck that had been sitting there for years or barrels buried by grass and overgrown weeds and stuff like that. We ended up renting a whole farm and shot there for a whole day, and just shot in a bunch of random locations.

He soon learns about some of the recently deceased that found their final resting places in the same cemetery as his mother. He soon builds his own family with the recently deceased and one morning he awakens to find that they have returned to life but are still decaying. This new-found family helps him with his self-esteem and communication skills which helps him get the girl and find his own place in the world. **Spoiler Alert**

Naturally, zombie best friends are not the kind you can easily introduce to the world. Instead of getting to enjoy his newfound friendships out in the open, The Loneliest Boy in the World follows the ragtag bunch as they try to keep themselves hidden from the prying eyes of neighbors, schoolmates, and government agencies. Martin Owen directed the film from a screenplay by Piers Ashworth, and the ensemble cast includes talent such as Hero Fiennes Tiffin (The Woman King), Susan Wokoma (Enola Holmes), Evan Ross (The United States vs. Billie Holiday), Ben Miller (Bridgerton), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars), and much more.
