Greta is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village, only to discover that the family's eight-year-old is a life-sized doll that the parents care for just like a real boy, as a way to cope with the death of their actual son twenty years prior. After violating a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring Greta's worst nightmare to life, leading her to believe that the doll is actually alive.

Great movie. It kept us guessing throughout.

You can see the blending of various horror movies. This movie, however, was able to raise the hairs on the back of the neck. Nice quirky horror. Dolls, kids, and animals are always great horror subjects if done right.

Fun viewing- an old-fashioned slightly-gothic horror story with quite a twist.

This wasn't a horror movie but scary in that it was super creepy. I liked it. Don't read the reviews here because people enjoy posting spoilers.

My only problem was researching this movie before I actually watched it! ugh, it was a decent film and I expected to jump a few times, but thankfully it was just the suspense music. I liked it and gave it 3 stars, the 4th star would have been if it was a spirit and not the actual boy. A part two won't make any sense and I hope they don't carry on with a sequel.

It just ended, but the story didn't. Not highly recommended.

Not your typical evil doll story. I liked that it was different. Had some good suspense and jump-scares. Overall, just fun for scary movie lovers. If you like this one, I suggest the New Zealand film, Housebound; though it is more of a horror comedy.
