They want to play with you.
They walk. They talk. They kill.
I recognize the difficulty of positive evaluation of horror films with dolls. "Little child" nature, little incomplete scenarios in these films together with other technical imperfections in the shed in advance of mathematical terms. While it is difficult to detect in this masterpiece phylum, at least we can find some very valuable and entertaining films for the cubic are exquisite samples. The "Dolls" great Stuart Gordon belongs at this level being a notable horror film with Satanic puppets. Annals is found in the last phase of Empire Pictures of producer Charles Band prior to sell due to financial problems and make the Full Moon with which released similar low budget movies.
The action unfolds in an isolated provincial mansion whose owners are a pair of bizarre. Themselves manufacture dolls and maintain a huge collection at home. A rainy night hosted at home six foreigners minicabs "mysteriously" stuck in the mud. Among these stand out a nice girl who loves dolls, immediately winning the sympathy of hosts and two girls punk culture for which rather the opposite is true. While in a way foreigners could feel relieved that they found shelter for the night, on the other hand should be worried as the terror lurks in the rooms of the House. The dolls you see is live … and have wild moods!
The Stuart Gordon sometime expressed keen interest to turn the sequel of "Dolls". Unfortunately (or fortunately? Who knows?) the project never came to fruition not.
I didn't mention the particular value of the film within the industry. There are elements which make it really stand out. The dark atmosphere, the good effects, uploaded for the standards of the subclass of gore, the inspired murders and atmospheric music is the most important of them. Excluding a few expected bangs that inevitably there would be, the Stuart Gordon creates a tightly knit and balanced horror movie, with fast-paced and measured jazz, where it is needed, without the work of slipping in the field of comedy. Another feature worth mention is the existence of meaning in the scenario. This has mainly to do with the fact that the dolls kill following specific "philosophy" and not anyone to ' Yes. Even the very nature of the dolls is not what it seems. Such mikroekplixeis make Gordon's movie more interesting. Good yields we have on interpretations. The elderly couple looks like it was intended for this very post, the girl's stepmother kakodiatheti could not antipathesteri shows while her husband embodies perfectly the loser who is unable to handle difficult situations. This whole plethora of fine items can only be awarded by the believer of horror. Just like that, without a doubt …
- The bloody attack of a monstrous koykloarkoydoy towards the beginning.
- The typissas efetzidiki a murder by soldiers.
- A chilling human transformation in doll.
