You think the horror is that said nanny has come across a family so demented, they believe their life-sized mannequin is a real boy.
I hope the movie offers a really good reason why she just doesn’t leave the goddamn house IMMEDIATELY. Hell, I used to have women leave my place the moment they saw my toys. Actual humans have a healthy fear of such things. Lauren Cohan of The Walking Dead should certainly know better.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
