Spellbound by the lifelike animation displayed by the dolls on stage, Stoichkov investigates the show’s host and discovers he is a German Toymaker who owns a mystical book that holds the key to eternal life. Believing the Toymaker and his book will help Stalin escape death, Stoichkov kidnaps him and they board a plane to Moscow.

However, the Toymaker’s living creations have followed them. When the plane is in mid-air all hell breaks loose as Stoichkov and his team of KGB agents realise the three dolls are on board and will stop at nothing to rescue their puppet master. Fasten your seat belt and prepare for blood-soaked toy terror at 30,000 feet…

Reviews:

” …cheapo B-movies like this should just go full Batman ’66 and get crazy with self-aware corniness. But when the first profile shot of The Toymaker clearly exposes that his horribly fake goatee isn’t fully glued to his face, it feels like the creators obliviously think they’ve done “good enough” work to deserve a rental fee and 80 minutes of your time.” Culture Crypt

“As always, no budget and no creativity. If you like to spend a lot of time waiting for little payoff (pun fully intended), this is for you.” Mondo Bizarro
