Has a few good bits
28 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a very boring low budget horror flick that amazingly had some suspenseful moments. At first it looks like they were using 8mm camera...but then it seems more professional. There is no gore at all apart from a slit throat which is only shown briefly, and a woman is stabbed with a knife (it isn't shown in detail though). The fortune telling machine is actually quite creepy, but the actual "death doll" is pretty pathetic. The scene where the woman is being stalked inside the house is quite suspenseful, as is the scene at the end where she is being stalked around the shop. Sadly this is spoilt by the killer talking for what seems like forever before he dies, and they tried to do a rip-off of Psycho with the explanation of the killer...but you'll have to watch it to see how. Also, don't watch this expecting an actual "killer doll", as the doll is really just a symbol of death that is present when the killings happen. The doll doesn't move or talk or anything.

It seems that this film is quite rare so I must be lucky that I found a VHS copy. If you manage to find one be sure to snap it up!
