Brahms: The Boy 2 – Horror
Category – Movie
Content – This is the sequel to The Boy, a horror film about a realistic boy doll named Brahms. Life is good for Liza and Sean, and their son Jude. Until people break into their city apartment and terrorize them. Jude stops talking. So Sean decides to take his family to the country to try and find peace and serenity. What they find is a doll buried in the yard instead. Oddly, Jude tells them the doll’s name is Brahms, and the thought of Jude connecting to “something” seems better than nothing. But this seemingly good thought changes rather quickly when strange things begin to happen, and eventually Liza realizes that Brahms is much more than a doll. And he will stop at nothing to ensure that Jude is his best friend…forever. Slated as a horror film, there is very little gore. The movie is more of an intense drama. The film is good, definitely a decent sequel to The Boy, but nothing overly special either. This scores a 6 out of 10.
Acting – Surprisingly to me, the lead of this film is Katie Holmes. Not really the caliber of film I’m used to seeing her in, but she is good enough. I just wonder if its really her genre of movie? Sean is played by Owain Yeoman, known for The Mentalist. He’s good and plays the protector of his family well. The outstanding acting for this film; however, belongs to the young boy Christopher Convery. He is very young, but solid in his acting. A name to watch for in the future for sure! Score is 7 out of 10.
Duration – 86 mins. Under an hour and a half to get Brahms in check, its good timing. It would seemingly be too short, but you get everything you need in this amount of time. This gets a 8 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Brahms: The Boy 2 – 21 out of 30.
Recommended Watch – Sure, I mean, this movie isn’t going to leave you with a long lasting thought. But it’s a decent enough watch to give it a go.
