Right next to Brainiac as the best of Mexican Horror...
My favorite Mexican Horror film Brainiac, aka Baron of terror, has got good competition here with this extremely eerie and moody terror drama about a voodoo curse involving menacing, murderous 'dolls' brought to life.
These 'dolls' are actually closer to the size of a ventriloquist's's dummy, and apparently are being performed by rather small midgets. However goofy this may sound, the dolls are actually very spooky and take the facial appearance of the people they have murdered, with rather stolid expressions. This is a very nice effect as it makes the dolls more menacing.
They are silent and lethal, and get away with ease, making quite a mystery, except for the viewer of course. The addition of a full-sized hideous zombie, plus a fine and eerie music score make this worthwhile viewing. As always, with Mexican horror films, it's quick pace keeps you from dwelling on some plot weaknesses and weird wording due to dubbing into English.
