Jared Cohn's Bad Boy
16 July 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

An opening scene establishes pleasant-looking Michael Welch (as Dennis "Denny" Nelson) is actually a killer rapist. Then, we meet rebellious teenager Bonnie Dennison (as Brooke Duncan). She is unhappily moved to a smallish town and resents pregnant stepmother Meredith Monroe (as Katherine), who keeps trying to get chummy. "My step-mom is trying to be my mom," she tells Mr. Welch, on their romantic first date. Wealthy father David Chokachi (as Walter) hopes his daughter and son Parker Coppins (as Kyle) will come to accept their new mom. Welch muscles his way into the family, then revels terrorist tendencies...

Here is yet another reason for fathers to give their daughters' nice-acting boyfriends a second look - there could be a killer lurking behind that charming exterior. "Born Bad" presents the usual psycho situations, but with money and effort spent well. You've got to admit, this one really moves; the final half picks up a lot of steam, and keeps the suspense level high. Writer/director Jared Cohn (who also acts) has a future with this sort of thing. Allowing some slack, the fate of "Bryan" is too unclear, and although Ms. Monroe is directed to say Welch was "checking me out" in the car scene, the reverse is clearly true. Check it out.

****** Born Bad (7/11/11) Jared Cohn ~ Michael Welch, Bonnie Dennison, Meredith Monroe, David Chokachi
