Movie Review – The Boy (2016)

Worst babysitting gig ever.

BQB here with a review of The Boy.

If I’m being honest here, I watched this movie for two reason:

  1. Lauren Cohan (Maggie from The Walking Dead) and since she’s sans-Glenn in this one, I can fantasize about wooing her with my manly machismo.
  2. Killer doll movies are the scariest of all movies. No one has a gremlin, ghost, zombie or monsters in their house, but everyone has at least one doll.

In her breakout movie role, Lauren plays Greta, a nanny hired by an elderly couple to take care of their son, Brahms.

The catch? When she arrives, she learns that Brahms is actually a doll, though his parents don’t let on that this is anything but normal.

I don’t want to give too much away, but as you can imagine, clues are dropped throughout in an effort to lead you in different directions. Is there a boy’s soul trapped in the doll? Are the parents nuts? Is Glenda nuts? Is everyone nuts?

It’s worth it to watch until the end to find out. I won’t spoil it because to the film’s credit, you won’t get what’s going on until it is all finally revealed.

I know I didn’t and as my 3.5 readers are aware, I’m a genius so that’s saying something.

Worth a rental.
