At the beginning, when the puppet Blade is racing around the Bodega Bay Inn grounds, he runs over to the car that had just pulled up. When the door opens and the two assassins walk out, you can see three crew members in the car door window reflection. Two of them are down on their knees holding the camera portraying Blade's birds eye vision. Another is standing on the grass watching over. See more »
Just a little bit of sauce and Dana can become quite the cynic.
I am not a cynic, Frank! I like to think of myself as a nasty bitch.

Being a fan of b-flicks and cultmovies, I was aware of this movie's reputation. So, why not give it a chance? Was I appointed? No, not really ... but was I excited?! Neither! This movie has an original storyline, is shot on a nice location and the special effects are OK (they look sometimes a bit silly, but in movies like this, there's one golden rule: how sillier, how much more fun!) But, in general, this is a rather slow and boring movie. It has some great (and sick) scenes ... but that doesn't cover up for the rest of the movie. This movie constantly repeats itself. I really had the feeling that the director had problems to fill his 90 minutes. So ... is it a waste of time?! No, you'll have fun with it. Just don't expect too much of this 'cultclassic'
PS: Just like Child's Play, this movie is about dolls and puppets ... but that doesn't mean it's suitable for young children. A wise advice to all you babysitters out there!
