‘The Boy’ TV Spot Suggests You to Follow “His” Rules

BLOODY DISGUSTING – William Brent Bell (Stay Alive, The Devil Inside and WER) is tapping into the fear of dolls with a new take in STX’s upcoming horror, The Boy, which stars “The Walking Dead’s” Lauren Cohan.


Below we have a brand new TV Spot that strongly suggests you follow “his” rules. For whatever reason I laugh every time Cohan laughs in these trailers. It’s super funny to me. I also love that one of the rules, not shown in this spot, is to feed him. I can’t stand Bell’s previous work, but I really, really want to like this one.


In The Boy , “Greta (Cohan) 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.”


The Boy comes to life on January 22, 2016.
