Check out our retrospective on Dolls here.
Dolls takes place on a dark and especially stormy nigh. The film finds an eclectic group of people taking refuge from the storm at the home of a seemingly sweet but ultimately creepy older couple. The husband and wife duo reveal to their houseguests that they are toymakers and then show their visitors to their rooms. Everything seems to be in order at first but shortly after retiring to their rooms, the stranded houseguests discover that everything is not as it seems. Toys begin to come to life and they don’t want to play…they want to kill.
The film was previously out of print on DVD, so it’s nice to see Shout Factory making Dolls available to horror fans and at a reasonable price.
