“Child’s Play” meets “Lars and the Real Girl” meets “Rabbit Hole” in a creepy and downright crazy new trailer for “The Boy” that is sure to cause more than a few screams.

The young and beautiful Greta (Lauren Cohan of “The Walking Dead”) travels to the English countryside to accept a job nannying the child of a kindly old couple, only to discover that the child isn’t really a child at all but a porcelain doll the grieving couple uses as a stand-in for their deceased son. When Greta makes the mistake of breaking the very specific rules given to her, a series of increasingly bone-chilling occurrences lead her to believe her supposedly inanimate young charge is not only alive, but out for blood, too.

“The Boy” is set for release on January 22. Watch the trailer above.
