Watch This Before You See Brahms: The Boy 2
It wasn't a runaway hit, but The Boy was still one of the strangest mainstream horror films of 2016. Whether you missed out on the first movie or just need a primer for part two, here's everything you need to know about Brahms: The Boy II.
In The Boy, an American nanny named Greta is hired by an eccentric rich family, the Heelshires, for a very unconventional job. They want her to care for a porcelain doll named Brahms.
Hey, a job's a job, right?
The family gives Greta a very specific set of rules by which to care for the doll, including talking to him loudly and freezing meals for him. It also turns out that the real Brahms was the son of the Heelshires, and he was killed in a house fire 20 years ago on his eighth birthday after one of his young friends was found in the forest with her skull crushed. Suspicious, right?
Naturally, Greta ignores the rules, at least at first. But then, the weird stuff starts piling up. Brahms seemingly moves on his own, and a child's voice and sobs can be heard throughout the mansion. Skip to the end, and Greta discovers that, lo and behold, the real Brahms has been alive and well, and he's now a grown man who's been living in the walls of the house.
After this shocking reveal, a tussle ensues, and Greta eventually fights him off and flees the estate. But as we discover later, Brahms is still alive, and he's busy fixing his shattered doll. Watch This Before You See Brahms: The Boy 2!
