There’s something inherently terrifying about inanimate objects coming to life. More specifically, dolls that lust for human blood. Director William Brent Bell looks to capture that fear with The Boy, starring Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead). If you happened to see Crimson Peak on the big screen, than you may have caught the atmospheric trailer that sees Cohan’s character grow increasingly unsettled when she’s left alone to care for a life-size doll. Aside from the eerie gothic setting, the trailer hints that there may be more to this story than your typical killer doll fare.
And now, we have the first poster, with the creepy tagline, “Every child needs to feel loved.”
The Boy is scheduled for release on January 22,2016.
