In A Fight Between M3GAN And The Boy, M3GAN Would 'Rip Him To Shreds,' Says M3GAN Director [Exclusive]

This post contains major spoilers for "The Boy," "Brahams: The Boy II," and "Housebound."

M3GAN is the moment, and this weekend, it's her time to shine. If the online chatter about the killer A.I.'s dance moves weren't already an indicator of her oncoming success, the film speaks for itself with genuine suspense and loads of camp. She's rightfully earned herself a place among the best killer dolls in one swift move. With that in mind, it's fun to think of the showdowns that could take place between M3GAN and her cinematic figurine counterparts. From the roster of choices like Annabelle, Billy ("Dead Silence"), and Chucky, let's take a moment to consider how Brahms ("The Boy") would fare.

I'm pitting the two against one another because "M3GAN" director Gerard Johnstone is also responsible for the horror comedy "Housebound." In that film, it's revealed that the hauntings, including a brief entanglement with a creepy doll, have actually been caused by someone living in the walls of the house, which is exactly what happens in "The Boy."

During an exclusive interview with /Film's BJ Colangelo, Johnstone was asked if Brahms would even have a chance against M3GAN, especially after lifting from "Housebound." "Oh my God. Well, M3GAN would rip him to shreds. Almost like a warning for anyone else to come near "Housebound" again. No, I mean, I haven't seen 'The Boy,' but yeah," Johnstone replied.

Funny enough, /Film has already pitted Brahms against another opponent when our own Chris Evangelista asked "Orphan: First Kill" director William Brent Bell, who also helmed "Brahms: The Boy II," if the title character would survive in a brawl against "Orphan" character Esther. In short, Esther is way too cunning to fall for Brahms' games. How would he fare against M3GAN?

Brahms would never see it coming

Sorry, Brahms, but it's not even close. For all of the tricks that the porcelain creep has up his sleeve, M3GAN is way too smart to fall for any of it. They share a similar purpose, though, in that they both attach themselves to emotionally fragile children, harnessing their vulnerability to work in their favor.

In "The Boy," you're led to believe that Brahms, a porcelain doll, has been doing all of the creepy haunted house stuff of his own accord, before it's revealed that its human inspiration has been living inside of the walls this whole time. "The Boy II," however, retcons this, as a new child becomes attached to Brahms, but we discover that the fragile toy had actually been possessed by a demon with a butthole mouth this entire time.

All of this is to say that while Brahms relies on his human counterparts to do his bidding for him, M3GAN can actually move about on her own. Even if Brahms were to someone choose one of his generational puppets to perform a sneak attack on her, the mechanical slasher would smash his dumb face in before he could even concoct a plan. It's almost unfair to pit the two against one another, because on some level that would include the assumption that Brahms ever had a fair chance. M3GAN would have no trouble getting her hands dirty, and would likely laugh at the audacity to think Brahms even had a sliver of a hope of making it out alive.

"M3GAN" is now playing in theaters nationwide.
