Universal City, California, March 9, 2016 – A young American woman uncovers the menacing nature of the English family she cares for in The Boy, a terrifying thriller debuting on Digital HD on April 26, 2016 and on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand on May 10, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. From Lakeshore Entertainment (Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Underworld Franchise) and STX Entertainment (The Gift, Secret in Their Eyes), the film is a frightening thrill ride directed by William Brent Bell (The Devil Inside) and starring Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead).

Greta (Cohan) is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village.  She soon discovers that the family’s 8-year-old is a life-sized doll that they care for just like a real boy, as a way to cope with the death of their son 20 years prior. 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.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.

I would like to win the film because I really want to scare the crap out of my 9 year old daughter.

I didn’t get the chance to see and support ‘The Boy’ in theaters, but I really wanted to! And I would love to be able to win a copy, so I can invite some friends over for a ‘The Boy’ viewing party!

I’d like to win because it seems like a really cool and fun horror movie. The story really interests me, and I can’t wait to see how the film plays out!

Because the doll looks like the creepiest little Bob Costas lookalike ever. You can almost picture him giving the Cowboys score with those horrific eyes, haha. And what screams out a more fun night than a scary doll marathon of Puppet Master, Child’s Play, The Conjuring, and Magic? This Blu-Ray would be a great addition to that!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
