Back in 2016, STX film released The Boy into theaters, and despite what initially seemed to be a well-worn premise ("OooOooOoh, an evil doll!"), the film delivered some solid scares, enough to drum up over $60M on the back of a $10M production budget. This, of course, all but guaranteed a sequel to the film, but - given that the year is now 2020 - that ended up taking longer than expected.
No matter! Today brings us the first trailer for Brahms: The Boy II, and we imagine that if you were into what the first The Boy was selling, you'll probably be into this one, as well.
Let's take a look...
Eh, this looks alright! There's a pronounced "Q1 Horror Release" feel to the whole thing, to be sure, and the scares on display here don't seem particularly inspired, but we're admittedly curious to see how they keep the Brahms party going after the events of The Boy, and will probably give this one a whirl when...well, maybe not when it hits theaters, but certainly once it's available to stream.
Here's a plot synopsis, should you like those:
"Unaware of the terrifying history of Heelshire Mansion, a young family moves into a guest house on the estate where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.
Katie Holmes stars in STXfilms and Lakeshore Entertainment’s BRAHMS: THE BOY II, alongside Christopher Convery (Gotham), Owain Yeoman (The Belko Experience) and Ralph Ineson (The Witch). William Brent Bell returns to direct BRAHMS: THE BOY II."
What do y'all think? Gonna make this for this one as soon as it hits theaters, or think you'll give it a pass until you've heard what the critics have to say? Sound off in the comments below, and stay tuned for more on Brahms: The Boy II as further updates become available (note: realistically, there will probably be no further updates on Brahms: The Boy II, but I am required to saw this at the end of every post by Blogger Law).
