Lauren Cohan (Greta Evans), Rupert Evans (Malcolm), Jim Norton (Mr. Heelshire), Diana Hardcastle (Mrs. Heelshire)


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.Β 

Typical Hollywood production line rubbish. Yawn, next.

4/10
