Storyline

In Nazi Germany, 1941, fearsome Colonel Ludolf Von Alvensleben acquires a legendary Occult book which holds the secret to bringing inanimate objects to life. Stolen by rogue Nazi officer Benjamin Hoffman, the mysterious book ends up in the hands of Toymaker Amos Blackwood after Benjamin is tracked down and murdered by SS officers in the town of Rosenheim. As the Nazis terrorize the locals while searching for the book, the Toymaker experiments with the ancient tome and gives life to his collection of vintage dolls and handmade toys. After betrayal from one of his employees the SS raid the Toymaker's shop, stealing the book and kidnapping Amos. But the animated dolls and toys don't take kindly to the loss of their master. So begins a mission to rescue the Toymaker from the clutches of the evil Colonel and exact a brutal and bloody revenge on the Nazis. Written by North Bank Entertainment

Trivia

The color scheme and style of the clown paint on the face of Otto the Doll is based on the Clown Make Up which notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy used to wear when entertaining the neighborhood children in Cook County, Illinois. See more »

Goofs

When the Toy Maker is being tortured, the Nazi gets the gun from the desk. The desk is a Abbess model D103 made in the UK and highly unlikely to be used in a German SS headquarters. See more »

Just horribly boring...
31 December 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right, well truth be told then I had absolutely no expectations to this movie, so I entered with a blank canvas, free to be impressed and entertained.

Except that was something that "The Toymaker" movie failed to do on every account. I endured 31 minutes of this ordeal before I simply gave up from sheer and utter boredom.

First of all, it is a movie set in Nazi Germany, yet everybody speaks English with that atrocious horrible assimilated German accent. Then came the big old Nazi bad guy speaking English with something that sounded like a bad French accent. It was just so bad and so abysmal to listen to. Either speak proper German, or at least have all actors capable of sustaining an accent that actually sounds like that mock generic German accent we all know.

The thing that made me quit on "The Toymaker", aside from the accent issue, and the apparent lack of a proper storyline, was when I saw the old man. Wow, talk about using fake props. It was just laughable to look at. So clearly a horrible and poor discount clown wig trimmed down he was wearing, and that beard dangling from his chin, are you kidding me? It looks so fake that even a blind man would do "for real?"

This was a snoozefest of unfathomable magnitude, and I have absolutely no intention to return to watch the rest of the movie because "The Toymaker" had absolutely nothing of any interest to me.
