The Legend of ‘The Boy’ Goes Up in Flames

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 new TV Spot that gives more backstory, and implies that maybe Brahms, the spirit of a young child possessing a doll, is being framed for a horrible murder and fire. I also caught the above frame in the end of the spot that may or may not be a huge spoiler?


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.



Here are a few more clips from the YouTube channel.
