Brahms: The Boy II brings back the uncomfortably innocent-looking doll who wreaked havoc on the life of a nanny named Greta (Lauren Cohan) in The Boy in 2016. At least that’s what it seemed like until the third act of the film pulled the rug out from under audiences and revealed something much more twisted at play. And when it comes to the sequel arriving in theaters in February, it looks like Brahms may be tied to something even more sinister than the first movie revealed.
/Film visited the set of Brahms: The Boy II when production was underway in Victoria, British Colombia, the western Canadian province northwest of Washington. While on set, we learned how Brahms begins a new tale of horror with a new family who is is just trying to forget a traumatic event that has left them shaken to their core. And things are only going to get worse for them after they meet Brahms. Read More »
The Boy turned out to be a surprisingly satisfying little thriller when it was released back in 2016. Four years later, the creepy little doll at the center of the movie is coming back, and this time he’s made a new friend.
Brahms: The Boy II finds a new family (Katie Holmes and Owain Yeoman) moving into a guest house that just so happens to be on the estate of Heelshire Mansion, where our old buddy Brahms used to live. In fact, their young son Jude (Christoper Convery) finds Brahms buried on the grounds, looking a little worse for wear. But after a quick clean-up by his mother, Brahms is as good as new. However, it seems like there might be more to Brahms than we’ve been led to believe. Watch the Brahms: The Boy II trailer below to see what horrors come with the doll this time. Read More »
Next month brings the sequel to the satisfying and surprising horror movie The Boy. Director William Brent Bell and writer Stacey Menear are back for Brahms: The Boy II, and so is the creepy doll that terrified everyone in the first movie.
/Film was lucky enough to be invited to visit the set of the horror sequel last year to meet Brahms and visit his historical home, and we’ll have more on that later this week. But during that visit, we learned about an impressive visual effect that was utilized in the film’s climax, and it’s almost as surprising as the twist ending of the movie itself. Find out more below, but beware of spoilers for The Boy. Read More »

The Boy, the 2016 film about a creepy doll that looks like Jared Kushner, is getting a sequel. In The Boy 2, Katie Holmes will find herself facing off against Brahms, a doll with a dark secret. Of course, if you saw the first film, you already know what that secret is. But that’s not going to stop original Boy director William Brent Bell from telling this story.

If you grab an average person off the street and ask them how they feel about the recently departed 2016, they’d probably give you a detached thousand yard stare. Or burst into tears. It was, for the world as a whole, not a great time to be alive. However, it was a great year for horror movies. And that makes a twisted sort of sense. As we discover new ways to fear and despair, the movies will react accordingly. Whether by accident or design, horror cinema represented everything we dread in 2016. How it will react to the actual events of this past year has me fascinated…and terrified.
Looking back at the past twelve months, it’s astonishing just how good horror cinema has been. It was there when we needed it, offering an avenue of escape and, when necessary, a dark mirror to examine our inner demons.

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.
