* SpiritualAntithesis: To ''Film/HomeAlone''. Both films star Macaulay Culkin as an intelligent young boy with great ingenuity that delights in hurting people. While Home Alone is a comedy that presents said kid as a hero defending his home from burglars, ''The Good Son'' is a thriller that presents said kid as the ''villain''- An amoral sociopath that terrorizes people for fun and tries to murder his own family members.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Henry can be viewed as a deconstruction of Macaulay Culkin's most famous role, [[Film/HomeAlone Kevin McCallister]]- A WiseBeyondTheirYears kid that can outsmart and manipulate grown adults, creates homemade contraptions, and derives enjoyment from hurting people; though with Kevin it's played for comedy and his victims are criminals. Henry is that character played without the comedy and to its logical conclusion: Such a kid would realistically be a sociopath, it wouldn't take much for that kid to graduate to murder, and he would target anyone for any reason (.
