Following the traditional horror genre, this film did a really good job of combining comedy with action with horror. I saw it at a Comedy Film Festival and it was true to its location. Even though it was probably a C-budget movie at best, the production quality, direction, and acting were first rate. Many of those involved attended the showing, and it was interesting, for example, to see Andy Palmer, who plays nerdish, squeaky-voiced Melvin, come out and speak and show a quiet confident (and not squeaky-voiced) young man. And it was a surprise to see actor Chris Fender, who played crotchety, over-the-top, good-old-boy Sheriff Bart was really a polite young man the same age as Andy!
Standouts in acting were Chris Fender, Andy Palmer, and Boo Gay, a Houston local comedian. The special effects in terms of the dolls were understandably disappointing in this low-budget film, but the other special effects, especially the requisite fight scene, were really good. All in all, worth watching - and enjoying.
