As a journalist the facts we learn about this case is intense. The filmmakers start with an investigative look into the hidden diary of the real Exorcist and then discover the lost Exorcism Room furniture (bed, desk, cross) said to be haunted and sealed in cold storage. They didn't stop there as they tell us about the boy's bed sheets containing devil's messages. Paranormal evidence includes shadows, EVP's, hot and cold spots, light abnormalities and a cross shaped burn mark on one of the investigators. One Hell of a show. A must see for paranormal and horror fans. --Movies Online
With moody music created especially for the film by Christopher Saint Booth, paranormal evidence such as real-time EVPs and camera-captures, and disturbing archival, architectural, and expert evidence, the Booth Brothers The Haunted Boy is a do-not-miss for Halloween and a must-own for paranormal experts and fans alike. Bravo! Highest Rated DVD to date 5 skulls A Must See! Do not miss this one. --Haunted America Tours

Some of the priests they interview look and speak as if they are in the late stages of dementia. Jason Long is not a bishop, but instead simply a fraudster.
Due to modern medicine, many cases of possession can now be linked back to mental illnesses. From my general understanding before most exorcisms, a lengthy invesgation needs to take place first. I doubt most religious organizations would approve of such films because it would only further a craze in faking demonic possessions.
Most of the people they interview, I seriously question their credibility. Anyone can slap religious garments on a fat bald guy and claim they are a exorcist.
Interview starry-eyed, braced faced teenagers who claim to have channeled the spirits of multiple deceased serial killers does nothing for their reputation.
Ironically they claim not many people have access to the diary and yet it came packaged with the DVD and was "leaked" online. If this document was so important and so protected I doubt this would have happened.
There's no way that any reasonable employers would tell their employees furniture they were moving was used in the exorcism or that it was possessed. And the "military" compound it was kept in cold storage? It looks like a storage yard like any other. What kind of military storage base has U-Haul trailers and gas advertisements on the fence?
These new spirit boxes, such as the Ovilus are simply rediculous. They are electronic boxes, which can and are easily manupliated. Anyone using these things are instantly discredited.
Long story short, avoid anything with the Boothe Brothers name. These kind of retarded fraudsters give people with good intent a bad name.
For one, some people may have been expecting an actual documentary exploring known facts and the controversial "diary". Except for small bits & pieces, it's neither. It's a "film production" only, interlaced with plenty of artistic license, dramatics, & ignoring of most information which doesn't fit their vision of what they want the film to be.
Some also may, especially if they judge by the over-dramatic cover photo, have thought they were about to watch a scarey Exorcist type movie. It's nowhere near that & the supposed supernatural occurences which are shown are horrible examples & vastly over-thought.
As either documentary makers or paranormal investigators ... or both, I can't quite figure out which one they are trying to be ... I simply can't take these guys seriously. In the paranormal side, I kept waiting for one of them to jump up & say, "Yee-ahh, me & Bubba & Billy Bob are gonna catch us some ghostes!" They just weren't anything near believable, if you do believe in the paranormal. On the documentary side, they seem to have completely forgotten certain facts which have been revealed about the "possession" which wouldn't have agreed with the stories they tell in the film. And they also seem to have added several "facts" which were never part of the incident in the first place. So I can't really take them seriously in that avenue either.
The "psychic R.N." was a laughable joke & a couple of the interviewees were obviously reciting a script which it seems sometimes that even they didn't truly believe. That said, for a mildly entertaining production to give you a couple of scares on a dark night alone, it accomplished that. But due to the large amount of completely unbelievable content & the side-stepping of many facts now known about the case, it can't be considered as what it's title implies.
This is basically just a story which uses "The Haunted Boy" & the so-called diary for the basis of it's content, but doesn't actually stay true to the entire case from 1949 to present time. So if you are expecting that, or expecting paranormal evidence, or expecting heads twisting around ... you'll be greatly disappointed.
Recipe For Disaster
Combine a few PSYCHICS, 1 woman with a DOWSING ROD, 2 BROTHERS with cameras, add a cup of SHOWBOATING, and some PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR wanna be's, with a dash of WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING mix throughly and ta da you have this lovely 3 ring circus. This started out as a great documentary that sadly and swiftly turned into a 3 ring circus, don't waste your money like I just did
Haunted Boy could have been very good without much effort, so it shows a special talent by the directors to have turned it into SyFy movie-grade tripe.
