Uninspiring, unimaginative, drab horror film whose sole purpose it seems is to attempt to launch the career of Lauren Cohan, best known for TV's zombie hit The Walking Dead.
She plays a nanny who is hired by an unusual couple to be an au pair to a porcelain doll, whom they seemingly believe to be real.
There's a plot twist, but you'd have to be a moron not to see it coming.
Typical Hollywood production line rubbish. Yawn, next.
