Storyline

A botched bust on a pair of arms dealers inadvertantly leads to the raising of a sixty-six-year-old demon with the power to bring toys to life as his personal minions. The demon is looking for a body to inhabit so he can increase his powers, and it just so happens that one of the police officers is pregnant with the ideal host. As the murderous toys close in on their victims, the officer must not only fight for her life, but for the soul of her unborn child. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Above average Full Moon horror offering; gruesome goodness!
28 August 2006 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Demonic Toys" is another wonderful, low-budget offering of horror hokum from Charles Band's Full Moon studio.

A combination of slightly over-the-top performances (Bentley Mitchum sounds like Bill Paxton's Hudson from "Aliens" when under pressure), some interesting special effects and a selection of simply wonderful "demonic toys" (the teddy bear and baby doll are inspired) result in 90 minutes of entertaining viewing. There's more of the red stuff than in most Full Moon features - gore-hounds won't be knocked out by the amount of blood and guts but there are enough scenes of surreal violence to prevent boredom setting in.

Fans of cheesy horror should enjoy this one. Its heart is in the right place and the film looks great - very dark and atmospheric.

The effective score by the always reliable Richard Band is the icing on the cake.
