A new family moves into the Heelshire Mansion and rediscovers the horrifying porcelain doll in Brahms: The Boy II. Katie Holmes stars.

Katie Holmes leads the cast of Brahms: The Boy II, a sequel to the 2016 movie that did surprisingly well at the box office. The new film will follow a new family that moves into the infamous Heelshire Mansion, a.k.a. the home of Brahms.

In the trailer, Jude, the family’s young son, discovers the porcelain doll and befriends Brahms. Slowly, his parents begin to realize there is something not quite right with the house.

Ralph Ineson, Owain Yeoman, and Christopher Convery also star.

3. Brahms has a lot of rules.

More from Horror Movies

Remember the list of rules that Greta had to follow in the first movie? It looks like they’re returning in the sequel.

The rules include crazy things like ensuring Brahms eats meals with the family, never gets left outside, and most importantly, Jude can never leave Brahms behind – ever.

2. The sequel might be more paranormal.

The first movie hinted at something supernatural in the doll but wound up not being anything otherworldly at all. The creepiness from the original film came from a full-grown man was living in the walls of the mansion.

It seems like Brahms: The Boy II may truly involve something paranormal, such as the real Brahms haunting the doll. Jude hears a mysterious voice calling out to him from the woods, which eventually leads him to the doll’s burial ground. Later in the trailer, Jude tells his parents that Brahms “tells [him] all sorts of things.” We also witness his eyes moving at one point.

1. Brahms might be turning Jude evil.

One scene in the trailer shows Jude playing with one of his friends. Suddenly, the other boy falls backward toward a deadly-looking wooden stake sticking straight out of the ground. Brahms looks on forebodingly from a nearby swinging bench.

Did Brahms set those dangerous circumstances into motion, or was it his influence over Jude? Could there be another big twist in this movie like there was in the first?
