The Curse of Robert the Doll: Another frustrating mess
Robert The Doll (2015) was a weak messy British horror so I was hugely surprised to see it spawn a sequel. Wait did I say sequel? I meant sequels, because at time of writing there are no less than four Robert movies.
Now for those of you unfamiliar Robert is based upon a real doll, a doll that inspired the existence of Childs Plays own Chucky. But make no mistake these movies are not on the same level, not even remotely.
What I find odd is that they don't use the real Roberts appearance because that is considerably scarier. Seriously, it's like a cabbage patch doll imitating leather face!
Well Robert The Doll is fresh off his last killing spree and is now an exhibit in a museum. It's not l.ong until he returns to his old ways and it comes down to the buildings security guards and newly recruited cleaner to save the day.
To it's credit it does remain consistent and even includes a cast member from the original. Sadly this doesn't make up for everything else being beyond awful.
Pretty much everything
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
I still struggle to find a doll even remotely feasible
I need alcohol if I'm going to weather the next two films
