The Review

Creepy dolls are nothing new to Hollywood horror. There's Chucky, Annabelle, among others that definitely put a certain idea in your head. Well now you can add Brahms to that list. Greta is looking for a fresh start, she's leaving her old life behind and trying to start new. In doing so she accepts a job as a nanny for a young boy named Brahms. Upon arrival, she realizes that the boy was not what she had expected. As the days pass, she gets caught up in the reality in which she lives. The question then becomes... Where is the madness stemming from? Her own imagination or the environment that she is in... The truth slowly reveals itself and when it does, it's darker than you can even imagine. This is a deeply psychological thriller that is far from original. In saying that, there are some elements here that add a little something to the creepy doll scenario. Does it have enough to stand on its own? That's up for debate. The conclusion to this story leaves room for more, but will there be more... We can only wait and see. Ultimately, this is a tired idea with a slightly different perspective. Is it for you? That's for you to decide.
