Predictable horror outing from South Korea
24 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dolls come to vengeful life in this rather predictable little horror tale from South Korea. Despite the Asian influence, in feel and format this is very much a Hollywood-lite production, with a group of rather bland characters brought together in a creepy old house before being bumped off one by one by the porcelain menaces.

It's mildly entertaining, featuring some nicely inventive death sequences and a focused pacing, but it's also all so predictable. There are one or two Eastern twists but for the most part this is a very familiar piece of film-making, offering little that hasn't already been mined to death by American producers. The characters are acceptable and drawn true-to-life, but they're a little bland with it and the villains just aren't, well, villainous enough to be memorable. It's entertaining enough by itself, but in the scheme of things, THE DOLL MASTER is a bit of a dud.
