Creepy doll movies and I are not friends, so when this trailer came in for the new horror film, The Boy, I had to torture myself by watching it alone in a darkened room. Let’s just say all the lights are on in the house and any stuffed animals are now suspect and locked in a backroom.
The Boy comes to theaters January 22, 2015.
Here is the official synopsis if you’re too scared to view the trailer:
Greta is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village, only to discover that the family’s 8-year-old is a life-sized doll that the parents care for just like a real boy, as a way to cope with the death of their actual son 20 years prior. After violating a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring Greta’s worst nightmare to life, leading her to believe that the doll is actually alive
