User Reviews

The poster of an animated puppet with an axe ain't present in the movie but it is still gory.
7 May 2020 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

The film lacked tension but has nasty n gory death scenes, especially the banana split a la Sean Bean's death scene from Black Death. The idea to convert a kid's show into a gory horror film is a courageous attempt but somehow the film didn't even come close to Child's Play or Chopping Mall.
