Terror Tuesday: Dolls (35mm)

HEY WALK. THEY TALK. THEY KILL!!
Grown-ups stink! Kids rule! What better way to illustrate this point than a scene where a mutated Teddy Bear mutilates the world’s worst parents? Directed by Stuart Gordon (RE-ANIMATOR) and produced by Charles Band (PUPPET MASTER), DOLLS is an evil fairy tale for adults. This movie feels like a 1930s dark house thriller that was updated to include the greatest elements of 1980s motion picture entertainment. Namely: punks, comic relief from a nerd, and creepozoid toys that come to life thanks to the stunning practical effects of John Carl Buechler (GHOULIES). DOLLS has never received the credit that it deserves, due to a limited theatrical release and straight-to-video stigma. That’s kind of weird, since watching this movie is way more fun than sitting through TOY STORY. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
