...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.

Though it might not be the climax to Browning's distinctive career in the genre one might have wished, it's certainly a worthwhile film.

One of Browning's more bizarre and enjoyable entries.

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).
