Storyline

Emily Barker is a cash strapped student trying to make money as a cleaner working nights at the East Falls Museum. But her peaceful graveyard shift turns into a time of terror when she is plagued by the sound of footsteps in empty corridors and mysterious vandalism throughout the building. Emily suspects that one of the exhibits, a creepy vintage doll named Robert, is alive and wreaking havoc after hours. Her reports to the head of security and the museum owner go unheeded. But when members of the night staff turn up dead in sinister circumstances, Emily knows the doll is responsible for the bloodshed. But a local police detective points the finger of suspicion at Emily and she finds herself the prime suspect in the investigation. Can she convince everyone of the truth behind the murders and clear her name? Or will she too fall victim to the Curse of Robert the Doll? Written by North Bank Entertainment

The Curse of Robert the Doll: Another frustrating mess
21 January 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

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.

The Good:

Meh

The Bad:

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
