The new episode of the Awfully Good Horror Movies video series looks back at the 1992 killer kid movie Mikey
It’s time for a new episode of the Awfully Good Horror Movies video series, and in this one we’re looking back at an underseen killer kid movie from 1992, Mikey (watch it HERE), and it’s awesome! To find out why we count this one as being awfully good, watch the video embedded above.
Directed by Dennis Dimster from a screenplay written by Jonathan Glassner, Mikey has the following synopsis: After each member of his family has died in unexplained accidents, young Mikey, a seemingly innocent and sweet little boy, is placed with an adoptive family. The family will discover the boy’s true personality at their own expense. Remember, Jason and Freddy were kids once, too.
The film stars Brian Bonsall, Josie Bissett, Ashley Laurence, John Diehl, Mimi Craven, Whitby Hertford, Lyman Ward, and Lorenzo Obias.
With the Awfully Good Horror Movies series, we take a journey through the world of “so-bad-it’s-good” cinema in the horror genre. We’ll provide you with some fun trivia, details on the production, and some food/drinks to go with it. So join us for some schlock as we go through the who’s who of terrible horror cinema!
The Mikey episode of Awfully Good Horror Movies was Written, Edited, and Narrated by Tyler Nichols. The show is Produced by John Fallon and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.

I saw it at a young age and it stuck with me for decades before I finally had the chance to watch it a second time and enjoy it all over again.
