(2020) (Katie Holmes, Christopher Convery) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: A family must contend with their son finding a doll that begins to show signs of supernatural behavior.
Liza (KATIE HOLMES) and Sean (OWAIN YEOMAN) are a regular married couple living in London with their young son, Jude (CHRISTOPHER CONVERY). That all changes when a home invasion turns violent, leaving Liza knocked out and Jude shell-shocked and now mute by what he saw. Five months later, he still isn't speaking, so Sean proposes they take time off and go stay in a remote country house in hopes of a fresh start.
While exploring the grounds, they find the now empty manor to which the guest house they're staying in belongs, while Jude discovers an old porcelain doll in the woods, only to be startled by the German Shepherd belonging to Joseph (RALPH INESON) who states he's the groundskeeper for the place.
Back at their house, Jude instantly bonds with the doll who he states is named Brahms, with Liza and Sean hoping it might help their son work through his issues. Instead, the doll starts influencing Jude's behavior, with Liza at times unsure of what she thinks she's experiencing is real or just one of her PTSD-based nightmares. But as the situation increasingly turns supernatural, Liza tries to figure out what's happening and how to protect their son from falling too far under the doll's dangerous spell.
