There is a reason why its so low budget!!!
30 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i bought this on DVD at easter thinking i was in for a treat but good god was i wrong,now i wont criticize the film about the zooming difficulties because i believe that was just a defect on all dvds thats were made of the dummy but even with that aside would the film of been good?no.Terrbily bland acting and way to much talking.now me,being a huge fan of killer doll films (guess by my user name) have to say this is the worst killer doll/dummy film i have seen in my life but i still added it to my collection.

Another thing is that we hardly actually see the dummy in action,all we hear of him is his voices through a trunk.There is no plot and believe me when i say it THERE IS NO PLOT.cheaply made music a 7 year old can make on his key boards and cheap lighting effects nothing in this film is fresh which is why it went straight to video.Surely they could of made it better even with a $30,000 budget.I know for sure all of you guys will watch it for like 5 minutes then turn it off,trust me it does'nt get better.
