Virgil Travis is a wealthy, soulless psychopath who lives in seclusion in his mansion home with his dwarf butler and maniac right hand man. Tortured and forcibly mutated as a child by a woman who put him through body transforming procedures, Virgil has an abnormally sized head. Basking in the suffering, degradation, pain, and death of others, Virgil has already killed, and kidnapped a female rock group that he keeps imprisoned in his basement to help satisfy his constant need for perverse amusement. Never satisfied, though, Virgil decides that he will once again try to fill the emptiness that exists within him, and so creates a trio of deformed, living dolls to systematically murder any and all people who have ever wronged him. What Virgil doesn't anticipate, though, is meeting his match and finding love, both of which come in the form of a woman who is even more evil and twisted than he is. Written by
After Virgil kills everyone and the dolls escape with the rockers, the screen blacks for the credits, but instead Virgil's assistant walks out and explains that there is an alternate ending that some may find more suitable. The last five minutes of the movie play over, except now the rockers throw the dwarf across the room before the wedding, and are forced to play the wedding march for Virgil. In this version of the ending, however, Virgil's new wife reacts positively to him. The rockers start to play music, which continues over the end credits. See more »
Tiring of living in his mansion as a deformed freak, an eccentric billionaire decides to use his living dolls to seek revenge for the years of treatment he's received only for an unexpected twist to take over the dolls and threaten the success of the mission.
One of the Full Moon killer doll classics, this one turned out rather enjoyable. While the decision to change the doll characters around makes no sense, the story here takes a backseat to the doll carnage and depravity depicted here which is overall utterly fun. From the rather gruesome and bloody deaths by the dolls, the suspenseful stalking they achieve throughout the houses and the action-packed confrontations that's filled in here is quite fun, and then there's the depravity with so much oddball stuff that it's overall quite entertaining, with the chained-up female rock group, clown-painted assistant, sex games and much more here that it's all quite twisted and utterly enjoyable. It's certainly repetitive of the other killer doll films out there and doesn't really offer anything new or innovative, so it has that against it, but the real damaging effort is the final twist which makes no sense and doesn't really have a whole lot about it that serves the film well. It's certainly a lot of fun if you're into this sort of thing but it's quite flawed if you're not.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity and several sex scenes.
