...more of a mystery yarn, a tall-tale if you will, than a horror movie, although it is big on mood and atmosphere.

An enthralling weirdo horror thriller directed by Tod Browning.

Audience Reviews for The Devil-Doll

Weird, silly movie. I didn't care for it.

A revenge-minded escaped convict lucks into a process for miniaturizing people, then controlling them with his mind. With it's shrunken murdering Frenchies and Lionel Barrymore in drag (!) this should have been a campy creep classic, but it flounders on the obtrusive subplot about the convict reconciling with his daughter (Maureen O'Sullivan).

Great Todd Browning film, the guy truly was a master of horror and the bizarre.
