Can't go wrong with creepy dolls
12 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE GEEZENSTACKS is a creepily effective episode from season three of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE, and there's very little to dislike about an episode which builds a successfully creepy atmosphere from the start and then runs with it. The tale is a simple one in which a sweet young girl plays with her eerily lifelike dolls, only to discover that whatever happens to the dolls happens to her family in real life.

Of course, there's plenty of bad stuff going on here, and it helps that the dolls themselves are menacingly spooky creations. Even low budget films like Stuart Gordon's DOLLS worked well, even if just for the visual appeal of the dolls themselves. Craig Wasson, from Brian de Palma's BODY DOUBLE, stars in this one.
