Walking killer voodoo dolls out for blood!
30 June 1999 | by (Cullman Alabama) – See all my reviews

4 men defile a voodoo temple by stealing a sacred idol.They are cursed by a voodoo priest. He warns them that they and their families will die horribly.Sure enough the men are being systematically bumped off one by one by killer dolls.(The killer dolls are midgets in fright masks and they will give you the creeps.Hard to forget them).

Men die but are undead (for a short time anyways). The dolls then wear the likeness of their victims. The showdown at the lair of the voodoo priest is rip roaring.The absolute ending is somewhat hysterical.

This would be a 9 or a 10 if it weren't for the lousy dubbing (especially the hammy actor dubbing for the villain) and the editing is extremely choppy. Worth a look, especially late at night!
