Watch an Exclusive Clip from the Movie The Boy: Rule #6: Help with Studies
Babysitting can be a fun but somewhat tough job. When done the right way, you have to make sure the baby/child is fed, clean, put to bed at the proper time and behaving well. Nannying is a bit more difficult, as, usually, it’s an all-day, every-day sort of job in which you may actually live with the host family. BUT, many do it, and it is fulfilling work. That is, unless the child that’s meant to be in your care is an inanimate object.
While it may sound easy, the upcoming horror film The Boy proves that it’s far from a piece of cake. In the movie, Greta, played by The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan, takes a job as a nanny for an 8-year-old boy in an English village. There, she discovers that the supposed adolescent is actually a life-sized doll named Brahms, after the parents’ late son who passed away 20 years prior. Here’s where things get really gritty: “After violating a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring Greta’s worst nightmare to life, leading her to believe that the doll is actually alive.”
Since we, at Teen.com, are fans of eerie tales such as these, we teamed up with STX Entertainment to provide you with one of those said rules. Rule #6: Help With Studies. According to Brahms’ parents, he has 3 hours of lessons, 5 days a week. Sounds fairly simple, but, as the above footage proves, it’s horrible AF.
To bring you up to speed, here’s the full list of rules for caring for Brahms:
Rule #1: No Boyfriends
Rule #2: Dress Him Each Morning
Rule #3: Kiss Him Goodnight
Rule #4: Never Leave Him Alone
Rule #5: Never Go in the Attic
Rule #6: Help With Studies
Rule #7: Never Cover His Face
The Boy, starring Lauren Cohan and Rupert Evans, hits theaters on January 22. Until then, watch the exclusive clip above!
