The Boy Review (2016) With Spoiler Ending


The Review (Spoiler Free)

I really like this movie. I really like how they setup the film. It has all the elements you need for creepy story–the big old creepy house, very mysterious old couple, and the creepy doll.

The story is about this old couple who put an ads for a baby sitter for a doll. Greta played by Lauren Cohan is hired to baby sit the doll in the big creepy house while the old couple away fro few days. When she found out that she was told to baby sit a doll, she was surprised by it, but she decided to do it anyway because she thought it was easy money.  And of course, weird thing started to happen and she started to believe that the doll is alive.

The movie does started out as haunted doll movie, but it turns 360 degree at the end. It will surprises you. There is lot more to it, and it is not what you think it is.


Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan is perfect for this role. She does fabulous job. Rest of the casts include Rupert Evans, James Russell, Jim Norton, Diana Hardcastle, Ben Robson, Jett Klyne, Lily Pater, Matthew Walker, and Stephanie Lemelin.


Spoiler Ending (Spoiler Alert!!)

We are told that the old couple in the house had a son named Brahms.  We are told that he died and the doll is symbolic of their son.  Initially, the movie makes you think that the movie is about haunted doll because it appears that the doll is moving on it’s own.  Eventually Greta believes that the doll is alive.

But the big surprise is that the doll is not haunted.  It is nothing to do with the doll.  It turned out Brahms didn’t die.  He is still live.  He was living behind the wall and secrete part of the house for all these years moving freely throughout the house. It was Brahm who was responsible for all the weird things going on in the house.  Brahm is obviously mentally ill and dangerous, and the old couple was not so proud of him. In fact, the old couple was tormented by him, and finally, they decided commit a suicide.

We see the Brahm was in love with Gretch and he was trying to keep her there forever. Gretch eventually find out what was going on trying to escape from him.
