Greta travel to UK to help a couple as a nanny. The elderly couple is going away for a while. She finds out it’s not really an eight year old boy, it’s just a doll. Alone in the big house creepy shit starts to happen. Could the doll be alive after all?

Well, yeah, naaah. It was an ok horror, but I guess the expectations where too big. The script is good enough, but I’ve seen it before. Cliches upon cliches without making it too boring. Is it worth watching? Yes, it is. It’s decent with a portion of good scares. It’s worth that bowl of popcorn, or cheeze doodles (Henrik??), or whatever you fancy…
