"Holly's House"
9 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Holly doesn't want me to have the baby." The second episode of Season one; "Holly's House" is a neat little psychological pot-boiler that bestows modest performances and one downright creepy life-size animatronics doll. It's a remarkable design. Katherine (an appealingly solid Marilyn Jones) works on a popular kid's show "Holly's House", where she controls a life-size doll. She enjoys her work, but things change when the doll seems to take a life of its own causing real trouble. The action takes place mostly on the house set. There's a playful air there, but still a foreboding tone lingers namely the score balancing both tenors. The imaginative concept has a happy, shinny façade of a kid's show hiding the underlining menace, unyielding attachment and the very questionable state of mind of its protagonist ("Are you actually asking me to grow up"), which leads to an ambiguously downbeat conclusion. I have my opinion, but I could see at least two other avenues it could go. "I made you."
