*Holy moly! From the poster alone you get the feeling that “When the Bough Breaks,” a new thriller coming from Screen Gems looks to be real entertaining in a “can’t wait to see-it” kind of way.
The film stars: Morris Chestnut (“Rosewood”; The Perfect Guy), Regina Hall (Barbershop: The Next Cut), Jaz Sinclair (Paper Towns), Romany Malco (Think Like a Man), and Theo Rossi (“Sons of Anarchy”).
So what’s it about? Here’s the synopsis:
John and Laura Taylor (Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall) are a young, professional couple who desperately want a baby. After exhausting all other options, they finally hire Anna (Jaz Sinclair), the perfect woman to be their surrogate – but as she gets further along in her pregnancy, so too does her psychotic and dangerous fixation on the husband. The couple becomes caught up in Anna’s deadly game and must fight to regain control of their future before it’s too late.
The trailer begins with a seemingly sweet Anna agreeing to carry John and Laura’s child, then transitioning to her attempting to seduce John and threatening to leave when he doesn’t respond as hoped.
“She’s dangerous, John,” a voice warns. “She could kill your baby today.” To which Laura follows, “Do what you have to do to bring my baby back.”
Yes, we’re talking psycho surrogate!
Check out the edgy trailer:
This is the kind of film that’ll have eager parents thinking twice about the use of a surrogate.
WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS will open in theaters nationwide on Friday, September 16, 2016.
