Toy Story meets the Sonora Market
27 December 2002 | by (Mexico, DF) – See all my reviews

When i was a kid (maybe 4 or 5 years old) i see this movie on TV. I can clearly remember the "human dolls": their childish movements, their grotesque faces, and abode all ... their lethal weapons: Big Needles really sharpened!!!. B&W films got some special charm in the horror and sci-fi genres. It catch you because (i think) is more like as the dreams are made of or showed us when we sleep (or does anybody here can remember a dream in glorious technicolor???). Anyway, the fact is that "Muñecos Infernales" are the ground zero of many mexicans in the strage and weird wolrd of gore and horror film ... a masterpiece, and a very good example of the melting pot that became the mexican films in the 50's and 60's. (voodo, catolicism, a police plot, weird science, romance and a touch of involuntary humor ... a nice blend!)
