The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan goes from killing zombies to being attacked by a possessed doll with her starring role in the horror film, The Boy, which is offering up its final theatrical trailer. Opening on January 22, 2016, The Boy also stars Rupert Evans, Jim Norton, Diana Hardcastle, Ben Robson, James Russell, and a creepy ceramic doll. Directed by William Brent Bell, The Boy is rated PG-13 for violence and terror, and for some thematic material.

The Plot:

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.
