“Whether it is a possessed doll or a satanic cult, this movie will make you look at dolls in a different way. And the creepiness of the titular doll is on a whole new level of creepy. Whether or not you are a found-footage fan, I’m sure this movie sets you on point with how you will feel towards the subgenre.” Weng’s Chop magazine

“The film is a thrill ride that never lets up, from the opening scene through the closing credits […] the primary challenges Heidi faces relate to the treatment of audio. The use of background music and non-diegetic sound throughout the film and music continuity during a party scene detract somewhat from the found footage conceit and entertainment value.” Found Footage Critic

“Story-wise, Ray does a lot of things right here: he provides a solid reason for these kids to have cameras of all types everywhere […] he establishes broad-stroke but effective backstories for everybody, and he writes engaging and realistic dialogue. It’s on the purely technical side of things, though, that Heidi manages to stand head and shoulders above its numerous counterparts in the “homemade horror” game.” Trash Film Guru

  1. This was legitimately one of the worst films I’ve ever watched. I honestly feel personally slighted at this movies existence.

  2. What was with the end?? The “doll” appeared to be some warped apparation. Anyone care to explain?

    1. A news broadcasted live about the kid and mom murdered,and found Heidi by a brick wall picked her up insulted her then threw her last scene she was sitting up against the wall.
