Five Dolla Holla: Dolls

A group of people stop by a mansion during a storm and discover two magical toy makers, and their haunted collection of dolls.

If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I have a thing for creepy dolls. So it doesn't really matter if the film is good or bad, as long as it got creepy dolls in it, I'm gonna love it. Luckily, this film wasn't bad at all. In fact, it was pretty flippin awesome! It has characters you love to hate and cheer for when the little dollies finally take em out. The acting wasn't too bad at all, the effects were great for an 80's film, and the story is just so much damn fun! Of course it has some 80's cheese, but it just makes it that much more enjoyable. I'm not sure it will scare any of the big kids anymore, but I bet if you have a doll in your house, you might walk past is a little quicker than you used to. If you think Chucky is bad ass, check out Dolls!

Stuart Gordon is one of my favorite horror directors, this is one of his tamer horror films, it plays more like a horror/fairytale type of thing.

He made this movie right after he made From Beyond, they even used the same house they used for filming From Beyond! This is the kind of horror movie Id show to my little 8 year old cousing or niece or something, you know, scary, but not TOO scary.

Dolls is freakin' awesome. One of my favorites. It does both the fairy tale vibe and the horror vibe very well. Dang, I need to watch this again.

I love this movie -- so well-made, and a perfect blend of comedy & horror. I'm not a huge Stuart Gordon fan, but he struck gold on this one!

I remember this movie being really awesome but I'm not sure if the scene I'm thinking of is from this movie. The scene has a man or woman on their stomach on the ground and one of the dolls rams her or him face first into a wall and breaks his/her nose. Sound familiar?
