Nothing is creepier than kids in horror movies, unless the kids aren’t even actually kids, but are just life-size dolls. This is the case with The Boy, an upcoming horror film starring The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan, which follows the story of a house sitter left alone with a possessed doll.
While it might sound like Child’s Play, it looks less like a slasher movie and it appears to take the spookier approach. The story follows Greta (Cohan) who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village only to discover that the family’s deceased 8-year-old has now possessed a life-sized doll that the parents still care for like an actual child. Those weirdos. After the parents leave a ridiculous list and schedule for Greta to follow for their “boy,” Greta ignores it, and that’s when strange things begin to happen.
The cast includes Cohan, Rupert Evans, and Ben Robson.
The The Boy movie release date has been set for January 22, 2016. You can check out The Boy‘s trailer below, and stay tuned to Nerd Much for more horror movie coverage.
