Synopsis: An American nanny is shocked that her new English family’s boy is actually a life-sized doll. After she violates a list of strict rules, disturbing events make her believe that the doll is really alive. 

Our Thoughts: ‘The Boy’ appears to be your run-of-the-mill haunted doll horror story, but it is far from it and so much more! 

The film begins with nanny Gretchen going to start her job caring for a little boy named Brahms. She is from American and trying to get away from her abusive ex-boyfriend by getting as far away from him as she can.

Gretchen believes that they are bat-shit crazy, as any normal person would. She agrees to do a ridiculous daily routine of caring for him for the next several months. As they are leaving, his mother says to her “I’m so sorry.” Clearly a bad sign of what is to come. read more
