The best thing about this film is Paydin LoPachin as the main psychopath Angelina. She's beautiful, bizarre, quirky and psychotic. The ventriloquist dummy was more annoying than anything. I could have seriously used a bit more freeky and a little less damaged and dirty when it came to its look.
But without giving away any spoilers, nothing is really explained in this film. There are hints, suggestions, possibilities, but the film seems to indicate that all of them are true even though that doesn't make any sense.
Who's the killer? The puppet? Norbert? Angelina? Something else? Are people even being killed? Triloquist tries to be uber clever and quirky but it probably would have been much better had it just played it safe.
This is an odd little black comedy that has some good ideas, but does get a little bit confused towards the end. The story at it's core is quite formulaic, but the addition of Dummy is a nice twist and definately leaves you wondering if things are quite what they seem. The comedy elements are good and black, and the young characters are quite refreshing and very well acted. As mentioned above, the ending is quite confusing and leaves you feeling that the events leading up to it have just been forgotten. This is in no way the best of example of the sub-genre of ventriloquist related horror movies, but it is quite polished and fun to watch.
