Movie Review – Dolls (2019)

Dolls, 2019.

Directed by Cuyle Carvin.

Starring Thomas Downey, Dee Wallace, Trinity Simpson, Bret Green, Elise Muller, Melinda DeKay, and Robert R. Ryel.

Synopsis:

An alcoholic father and his daughter move into a house they have recently inherited and discover a set of dolls in the attic. The pair soon learn that the dolls have a sinister past.

They soon learn that the dolls have a sinister, and deadly, past.

Of course Stuart Gordon’s Dolls is not the be all and end all of killer doll movies but it is, for myself and many other genre fans, certainly one of the best examples of the genre. A genre that also
