    Dolls proves Stuart Gordon didn't HAVE to go all rapey and over-the-top gory to craft a good chiller, and having putt a little girl (who's quite effective) at the center of it provided a good opportunity to keep things on the less lurid side of things. Anyway, creepy dolls creep people out, and sometimes, that's all you need. A sudden storm, lost travelers running to an old house for refuge, a toymaker, and that night, weird things start to happen, especially to the adult jerks who for the most part deserve their fates. There's a kind of EC Comics (and this Tales from the Crypt etc.) vibe coming off this tale, and some fun stop-motion effects to make the title monsters come alive. Ultimately, it comes down to calibrating just who gets it, and in what order, and I think that's very well done, with a lot of clever touches. It's really not a case of everyone getting it the same way like a second-rate slasher movie. From the giant teddy bear on, a whole lot of fun. 3 hours 12 minutes ago

    A fun horror comedy despite the terrible acting by the father and stepmother. Rest of the actors were good and the plot was fun. 2 years 4 months ago

    A big DISLIKE for this one. The main problem were the intolerably annoying characters. 8 years 2 months ago
