Movie Info

An eccentric and lonely dollmaker entertains himself by shrinking teenagers and keeping them in his shop in this campy horror movie. Most of the kids don't mind, for they can spend their days dancing and listening to rock & roll. This provides the dollmaker with hours of entertainment until one day he shrinks a rebellious fellow who wants to be big again. Bert I. Gordon was behind the nifty special effects.

All Critics (1)

A misbegotten amateurish but somewhat funny low-budget b/w horror tale of a lonely doll-maker given to shrinking human beings into dolls.

Audience Reviews for Attack of the Puppet People

The title is misleading, unlike other fifties movies of this kind, and should be called attack of the puppet master instead. The guy turns these people into puppets, and they have to try to get back to normal. It's a pretty simple story, and it's kind of cute, but not all that good in the end. It's just okay.

Acually, they're Dolls, not Puppets. I suppose that Attack of the Doll People just didn't sound as scary(?).
