    When you see the name Stuart Gordon, you know you are up for a treat. The set was gorgeous, the camerawork was perfect, the script was fun, acting was great too. Beautifully eerie, yet charming. Dolls is a modern fairy tale with a dark theme.

    One of the better killer doll films, Dolls is a good film that relies on old ideas, but nonetheless work well due to great effects, creepy atmosphere and Guy Rolfe's performance. Add to that some very impressive special effects. Although nothing really new, this is a fun little film that generates some good scares. Of all the doll films I've seen, this film along with Tourist Trap are the best I've seen. The performances are questionable; however Guy Rolfe himself makes this film worth seeing. The film has its faults, but for the most part, it succeeds at delivering good enough scares to entertain any horror fan. The film's strength lies in Stuart Gordon effective directing. Even with the fact that this film is nothing new, it's still is very entertaining and lots of fun from start to finish. The film has its flaws, but it manages to one of those underrated, often overlooked gems of 80's horror. The film is silly at times, but there's enough going on-on screen to make this film standout. Stuart Gordon has made something very different from his previous work, Re-Animator, and he shows off his skills as a well rounded horror director that delivers one of the definitive killer doll flicks. The ideas are nothing new, but it still manages to be eerie, creepy and humorous at times. I really enjoyed this film, and I think it's a fine departure from Stuart Gordon's previous work.

    Yep found another doll film but this time from Bands Empire film company and not directed by the man himself. Surprisingly this doll flick is different from all the rest with its plot, this time its very much like a fairytale or even a Stephen King story. An old couple that make dolls in a big mansion in the middle of nowhere take in lost or stranded folk and shrink them down turning them into dolls depending on the persons character, if they're good or bad. So a slightly different spin with this film which is nice and gives it a fresher feel. The dolls are not weird looking killers either they are just normal looking old fashioned toy dolls from various periods, almost 'Pinocchio-like' in design style and feel. Cast is good in this too with the old couple being especially well performed, no one really well known but they all play their parts well enough too make the film seem much better than you'd expect. In fact the whole film looks good with decent well lit sets, dark hallways, plenty of shadows and the classic thunder and lightning gimmick, all giving the right atmospheric glow. Not really scary, the film has more of a 'Scooby Doo' creepy feel to it. Just right as its obviously hard to make killer dolls like this come across as genuinely scary.

    Oh who doesn't love a good horror flick about evil dolls?! Really the dolls helped get rid of the evil in this old bed and breakfast.. it's so creepy and classic.
