The abandoned home of Wilfred Butler, a wealthy but troubled man who committed suicide, has been willed to his grandson, Jeffrey. But an Axe wielding maniac has set up residence in the house - and he doesn't take kindly to strangers.
In Nazi Germany, a Toymaker takes possession of a mystical book which gives life to the inanimate. After evading the SS, who are under orders from Hitler to retrieve the book, the Toymaker boards a train in an attempt to flee the country. Thinking he's in the clear, the Toymaker soon discovers that a group of high ranking Nazi officers are also on board. Eventually his secret is revealed and the Nazis close in. But the Toymaker has already used the magical tome to bring a vintage doll called Robert to life - and Robert will stop at nothing to protect his master. So begins a blood soaked battle aboard the train as the Toymaker and the killer doll take on the Nazis. It's a fight to the death and only the victor will get off at the next stop.Written by

Light years ahead of the other films in the series
I've seen all of the movies in the Robert the Doll series and this one stands head and shoulders above the others. Actually compared to the first movie it's on another planet. As always there are tell tale signs of a low budget and lets face it all of these movies are clearly made for pocket change. But the story and actors in this one help you over look that because rather than a cliché haunted doll movie we have all seen a million times before we actually get a well paced thriller with lots of tension and twists and turns. If your looking for wall to wall doll action you may be disappointed but the story is interesting enough without that and the dolls are used well at the right moments. There is more going on in this movie with story and action than probably all the other Robert movies put together. I'd be interested to see what they do for the next one considering how each new movie seems to be better than the last.
