The latest from M. Night Shyamalan is centered on the ghost-seeing, alien-fighting writer-director’s creepiest subject yet: those grossly realistic reborn baby dolls.
The Apple TV+ series sees Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell as a Dorothy and Sean Turner, a couple mourning the recent loss of their newborn. The death leads to Dorothy picking up a surrogate baby in the form of this horrifying little rubber effigy. If that’s not weird enough, then she hires a nanny (Nell Tiger Free) for it. Sean is all, “Yeah, so obviously you don’t actgually have to watch over this lifeless, silicone shape of a child,” but the nanny is disturbingly up for it. Apparently she’s somehow the even more screwed up part of this thing. And knowing Shymalan, it’s going to be stupid how she is.
