Demonic Doll Horror 'Brahms: The Boy 2' Looks Terrifying

Demonic Doll Horror 'Brahms: The Boy 2' Looks Terrifying

Horror loves a creepy-as-hell doll (we're looking at you, Child's Play and Annabelle) and Brahms: The Boy 2 is no different.

The trailer for the movie, which hits cinemas on 21st February, just dropped - and we'll never look at our childhood toys in the same way again.

Brahms: The Boy 2 is the sequel to 2016's The Boy, directed by William Brent Bell and starring Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead), which followed an American nanny, Greta, hired to look after a wealthy British couple's child, only to discover the boy is a life-size doll.

Greta is given a list of strict rules to follow while caring for the doll-child, but the more time she spends with the family, the more she becomes convinced that the doll is genuinely alive.

Brahms: The Boy 2, sees director William Brent Bell bring a fresh cast of characters and storyline to The Boy franchise.

When a couple begin building a new life in Heelshire Mansion, their young son Jude (a chilling performance from Christopher Convery) discovers a life-like porcelain doll called Brahms, who soon becomes a childhood 'friend'.

Brahms is eerily human, and as the bond between child and doll intensifies, Jude's behaviour begins to change, leading his worried mother (played by Dawson's Creek favourite Katie Homes) on an obsessive search to unravel the doll's history.

The trailer is a dark mix of jump scares and subtly chilling sequences that play with mirror imagery of child and doll. When Jude's parents discover a brutally destroyed teddy in Jude's room, they are forced to psychoanalyse his behaviour.

There are hints of horrors to come - including a muddied doll being dug up from the earth - and in a nod to the original movie, we see a list of strict rules written in childlike writing, including 'Jules has to be with Brahms always and forever'.

"It's fun to be scared sometimes, huh?" Jude asks his mother.

Hell yes, Jude - see you at the cinema 21st February.
