Storyline

Virgil Travis is a wealthy, soulless psychopath who lives in seclusion in his mansion home with his dwarf butler and maniac right hand man. Tortured and forcibly mutated as a child by a woman who put him through body transforming procedures, Virgil has an abnormally sized head. Basking in the suffering, degradation, pain, and death of others, Virgil has already killed, and kidnapped a female rock group that he keeps imprisoned in his basement to help satisfy his constant need for perverse amusement. Never satisfied, though, Virgil decides that he will once again try to fill the emptiness that exists within him, and so creates a trio of deformed, living dolls to systematically murder any and all people who have ever wronged him. What Virgil doesn't anticipate, though, is meeting his match and finding love, both of which come in the form of a woman who is even more evil and twisted than he is. Written by Duke Savage

Crazy Credits

After Virgil kills everyone and the dolls escape with the rockers, the screen blacks for the credits, but instead Virgil's assistant walks out and explains that there is an alternate ending that some may find more suitable. The last five minutes of the movie play over, except now the rockers throw the dwarf across the room before the wedding, and are forced to play the wedding march for Virgil. In this version of the ending, however, Virgil's new wife reacts positively to him. The rockers start to play music, which continues over the end credits. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the R Rated version, Jason Pace's death was edited by about 20 seconds. The Unrated Director's Cut (available on DVD), features the longer/bloodier death scene, which just has more blood. See more »

Love Dolls...
17 July 2008 | by barnthebarnSee all my reviews

Frankly unique film from Full Moon and Charles Band himself features small dolls, a caged female rock band and a villain with a minute head, weird! It is the bizarre touches that make this film so much fun. The female band - though clearly sexy in appearance - are not developed enough as individual characters. They do sing well, their songs rough and crude but fun despite this. Part time actress/part time teacher, Debra Mayer (as Moira) wants Virgil Travis' wealth and spends a lot of the film wearing little clothing and torturing her man (Warren Draper). It's not clear why Virgil has a pinhead but the story is frequently so ridiculous it doesn't really matter (incidently Virgil is played by actor Kristopher Logan, using the name here of Jack Maturin). The 'killer' dolls are new and well designed but budget restricts their role and unlike - say 'Puppet Master' - they are mainly shown looking threatening but not doing much. Likewise Virgil doesn't have any particularly exciting scenes presumably because his small head made these logistically difficult. Phil Fondacaro is in charge of the girl band and his job is to demand particular songs at the request of Virgil, for whom he works. If the girls disobey they get a shock - literally. Well made, exceptionally acted - plot firmly tongue-in-cheek. Quite honestly, brilliant.
