The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan stars in the horror film The Boy alongside a creepy, life-sized doll that’s equally as scary as The Conjuring‘s Annabelle. STX Films just released a new trailer for the thriller directed by William Brent Bell and co-starring Rupert Evans, Jim Norton, Diana Hardcastle, Ben Robson, and James Russell. The Boy will be helping to kick off 2016 with a January 22nd theatrical release.
Greta (Cohan) is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village, only to discover that the family’s 8-year-old is a life-sized doll that the parents care for just like a real boy, as a way to cope with the death of their actual son 20 years prior. After violating a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring Greta’s worst nightmare to life, leading her to believe that the doll is actually alive.
