#40 Dolls (1987)

Dolls is a horror title I had no former knowledge about. Like you guessed, it’s about these little Dolls coming alive and starting to kill folks. So, not really my favourite type of movie on the paper.

Where Dolls wins you over is the overall mood, its setting and the characters ripped right out of ”What was the 80s like?” -book. It’s not a too scary movie per se, but it does get pretty gory, considering its overall faery tale like mood. The stop motion parts involving the Dolls feel really outdated, but luckily there aren’t too many of them.

In the end it feels like a prolonged episode of Twilight Zone, but that’s not a bad thing at all. The team has captured that perfect eerie feeling and it makes a decent and fun watch for those dark late autumn nights. It’s a gory, entertaining bed time story for adults that somehow manages to be better than the synopsis would suggest.
