Originally intended to be released into theaters in the summer of 1989 and onto home video in September 1989, it was then pushed to 12 October 1989 as a direct-to-video release, as producer Charles Band had stated in an interview that he would make more money in the DTV field than he would in the theatrical market.

Long ago a puppet maker named Andre Toulin ( William Hickey) has discovered the means of bringing puppets and dolls to life thanks to ancient Egyptian techniques and a potion as it makes them alive making them into little devilish killers. Years later, a group of psychics named Alex ( Paul Le Mat), Dana ( Irene Miracle), Frank ( Matt Roe) and Megan ( Robin Frates) are call in with each other as they investigate the hotel only to discovered that Toulin's puppets are on the loose and wants to kill.
One of the most well known killer doll flicks there is out there, this started the "Full Moon" company back in 1989 after Charles Bands's company "Empire Pictures" was bankrupted and this movie was became a genuine cult hit on video since it was released. Barbara Crampton ( "Re-Animator") does a great appearance as a costumer for one of the psychics, the movie is inspired by another Charles Band horror production "Dolls". Alongside the Zuni Doll and Chucky these puppets are just vicious little creatures who gained popularity among horror fans.
