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

Two of the three dolls, Otto and Isabelle, briefly talk in the film. The style and manner in which they speak is inspired by the voices of the creatures, known as Crites, in the film 'Critters' (1986). The third doll, Robert, never speaks. See more »
When Abigail is leaning over the counter reading her book, there is a Visa logo clearly visible on the glass display case to her right. The film is set in 1941 yet Visa wasn't invented until 1976. See more »
feels so much like the puppet master films especially the recent ones which were cheap and set in world war 2. but although it feels very familiar it has some entertaining scenes especially the ones with the evil colonel and his dumb nazi sidekicks. if your looking for a period world war film with class this is not it but if you want to leave your brain at the door and laugh at some dolls stabbing Nazis you will like this.
