You should know this movie holds a 63% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Our story involves six people stranded in a creepy mansion in the middle of nowhere (so far, our story wins originality points). There's a little girl and her love withholding father and mother, and two Madonna clones.
They end up in the quaintly creepy home of an elderly couple who makes dolls and seems a wee bit too attached to them but still the best example of parenting you're going to get in this film.
So cruel and uncaring parents have made Judy give up their teddy bear, but Judy gets something waaaaay better - this Punch doll. FACT - Punch dolls are twice as cuddly as teddy bears and kids just can't get enough of Punch's violent tendencies.
As you can guess, its a night of terror, with people being picked off. First to go is the Desperately Seeking Susans...
Dad runs into the same character flaw that most horror movie characters do. He's unloving and insensitive but incredibly bland. Espescially when it comes to the fact there's a chance homicidal dolls are out for blood.
They're also the spirits of others, but whatevs. Shrug it off.
The kindly old people explain they have guests over all the time. But they put their guests through a test to see if you respect childhood and are pure of heart - if you fail, you're dismembered by a doll. Sort of like Willy Wonka's less socially acceptable brother.
And we end with another group of terrible people coming to stay at the Doll house ignoring, what I'm assuming is its many negative Yelp reviews.
