The Doll Returns in Final “Brahms: The Boy II” Trailer

Though audiences didn’t necessarily jump at STX Entertainment’s The Boy when it hit theaters back in 2016, the film did draw a cult following of loyal movie fans. Combine that with its micro-budget and the studio did well with the picture, green-lighting a sequel that would continue the story of a boy who befriends a doll with a set of strict rules.

Starring Katie Holmes, Brahms: The Boy II centers around the historic Heelshire Mansion and the grounds that surround it. When a young family moves into the guest house on the established estate, all seems to be going well. That is until their son makes a new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.

The film’s new trailer doesn’t showcase much that we haven’t seen before, and in the wake of such genre fare as AnnabelleThe Conjuring, and Dead Silence, I’m not sure the full film will contain much originality. But alas, here’s to hoping.

Directed by William Brent Bell, Brahms: The Boy II hits theaters February 21.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
