After bringing us ‘The Boy’ William Brent Bell (director) and Stacey Menear (screenwriter) take us back to Brahms, this creepy doll, in this sequel starring Katie Holmes.
The first film, within being one more film within genre cinema, where a doll is demonized, we can say that it risked a lot and was original. Here we saw how a nanny was hired to take care of Brahms, which she did not know that she should take care of a doll and that this thing had rules to comply with. When those standards are not met, that’s when bad things start to happen.
In this second film, we meet a family that has just experienced a huge trauma in the city. In order to try to alleviate the situation a bit and eliminate fears, the husband decides to rent for a few days the guest house of a huge mansion in a secluded place. Of course it is the big house where Brahms was and of course, the protagonist child becomes “friends” with the doll. This is where the entire odyssey begins for this family.
One of the most important things that have been lost is not paying attention to the list, yes, they do not pay attention, Brahms warns, but nothing really happens when disobeying them, they happen due to other types of circumstances. It’s a shame, because this is exactly what ends up turning it into one more film and that it is not going to stand out and give us anything original either. They have not risked, having a fairly well done first part.
A success that he has is to enter the universe of the doll and learn the history and the reason for its existence. The film is not a horror either, but it can be quite predictable, the scares are simple and the tension is created many times thanks to the side tracking shots in which from time to time we see the doll and all you expect is that has moved.
