Boy Erased

In 2015 Joel Edgerton brought us the Gift,  a chilling,  creepy and for all extensive purposes a big budget Lifetime movie.  4 years later he brings an even creepier,  even more chilling film in Boy Erased.  This is a horror film,  it is more terrifying than horror films . Jesus camps and conversion therapy.  Beating the gay out of people,  telling them they are sick for choosing this path, placing blame on the devils work such as drugs and alcohol , judging a man based on stance or handshake. Edgerton himself gives a horrifying performance,  as does Russel Crowe.  Nicole Kidman is great and so is Lucas Hedges. Edgerton has become a director to watch.
