This Thriller Starring Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall Looks Seriously Entertaining.

When the Bough Breaks

I love a good thriller. So when the new trailer for When the Bough Breaks dropped, I was immediately sold.

Starring Regina Hall, Morris Chestnut and newcomer Jaz Sinclair, When the Bough Breaks plays on old tropes of a female usurper in a seemingly happy home, but incorporates the modern issue of surrogacy. The story appears to be 1-part The Hand The Rocks The Cradle and 1-part Single White Female — with a dash of The Crush thrown in for good measure.

Watch as a husband and wife learn about the importance of thorough background checks in the trailer below. When the Bough Breaks hits theaters on September 16.
