Both known and forgotten horror films of the 20th Century

First horror movie review of the year, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like it. Going into the film, I was expecting it to be just another doll possession film, with a predictable outcome for the story. Nope, not even close. This film, for me, was not predictable at all. The film is about a young woman named Greda (Lauren Cohan), who takes a job as a Nanny in England to get away from an abusive ex-boyfriend. Once she gets to Heelshire residence, she is somewhat taken aback when she learns that she will be taking care of a doll instead of a child. The Heelshires leave Greda with a list of instructions she has to follow for Brahms, the doll, while they go on holiday. After a series of conversations with the grocery man, Malcolm (Rupert Evans), Greda learns that there was a little boy named Brahms, but he died in a fire when he was very young. At first, Greda ignores the list of instructions but after a series of strange events she starts to question if the soul of Brahms is inside the doll. Its been a while since a horror movie has managed to catch me off guard, and I loved it. The film does stick with some of the more classic elements of a doll possession story, but it does deviate the closer we get to the climax of the story. The surprises and twists with this new horror flick will not fail to disappoint. One thing I loved about the film is that despite it being set in the United Kingdom, it was filmed in British Columbia in a very haunting location which was perfect. The reason why it was perfect because the film was very haunting, and not in the ways you would expect. Awesome horror flick!
