It’s official: between the new trailer for The Boy and the upcoming sequel to Annabelle, possessed dolls are officially a trend. Ready your spec scripts, ladies and gentlemen. Murderous inanimate objects are in.
The new trailer for The Boy does look familiar, but comfortably so. Sometimes, all you need is a movie where a toy stalks a woman (Lauren Cohan, a.k.a. Maggie on The Walking Dead) through an oppressive Gothic mansion, forcing our in-over-her-head heroine to solve mysteries, survive countless jump scares, and maybe escape to the end credits with some breath left in her lungs. The killer doll subgenre of horror cinema may not be the most respected corner of the genre, but it has its moments.
Watch the Boy trailer trailer after the jump.
