A little inside on Ragdoll
4 March 2005 | by cllangkjaerSee all my reviews

This project was in development years back. I remember reading about the storyline and it was much different then the movie you see today. I know that Full Moon had some problems with Paramount Pictures about it, so the idea has been in Charlie's desk for a long time. I'm happy to see that it turned out well. I think Ted Nicolaou did a Marcellus job on it, mind you - he is an absolute directing genius. This Movie became Alchemy Entertainment's first film. later on Producer Mel Johnson Jr. changed the company name to Big City Pictures, because they had an idea about making a record company with a similar name. The soundtrack to Ragdoll is out there on CD. This is the only Movie Alchemy made under that label and by far the best one Mr. Mel Johnson Jr. Produced. also look for him in Full Moon's Hideous, he is very entertaining in that one. So grab those Popcorn's and Injoy!
