Reviews [click links to read more]:

” …the fourth in the series keeps the story ticking over binding together all the movies, with plenty of twists, more kills (with attitude) and full closure on story of our adorable little friend. A worthy watch for fans of the series only…” The B Club

” …the camera quality throughout is clear and clean, with the occasional nice shot (lunar transforming trains aside). The music is okay too, adding some atmosphere to some scenes. Otherwise, once the 40-minute mark passes and Robert and the Toymaker show up, it goes to some silly places. The drama does not hit its mark, and there are few, if any, scares to be had.” Cryptic Rock

“If you’ve seen one of these Robert movies before, you already know what we’re working with, which is a lazy script, a lazy handheld camera, and a lazy excuse for a killer doll movie that barely includes 90 seconds of the killer doll. I’m mildly shocked that someone went through the trouble of acquiring period vehicles for one sequence when so little of the movie smacks of any effort at all.” Culture Crypt

“Lee Bane has mastered the role of the Toymaker now, providing a real human edge to someone who could initially have been shrugged off as a one-dimensional caricature, while a deserved fist bump goes to Gareth Lawrence who practically steals the movie as the evil Frederick Voller.” The Schlock Pit

“The best moments of this story take place aboard a train. It’s too bad director and screenwriter Andrew Jones doesn’t invest in his puppets as much as he does in location scouting, because if that doll started killing everyone aboard, we’d have one hell of a film.” Tales of Terror

  1. The best horror movies get criticized and that means the critics don’t even know what a horror movie is!
    Some people should go and see “modern” CGI and francised films that deal with stupid fantasy stories and leave real horror art to real conossiers .
