Reviews:

“Taking a much darker tone than some of his previous films it incorporates an excellent mixture of drama with both paranormal and psychological horror flowing seamlessly together thought out the film. The pace of the film is slower than some fans may expect, with a lot of the usual blood and violence more retained until later, which horror fans will probably agree, works perfectly for the style of the film.” Blazing Minds

“It’s a dark, creepy spookfest with enough frights to chill the most hardened of horror-loving hearts. With a superb cast, visuals and plot, this is the real deal – and more than worthy of the Mycho name.” Hickey’s House of Horrors

“While it’s easy to spot that the film is on the lower end of the budget spectrum, it still provides some riveting emotional performances and doesn’t lack in the scare department. There is some incredibly horrifying imagery in this film and what could possibly be considered as Mycho’s most terrifying creation yet.” Morbidly Beautiful

” …The Bannister DollHouse has a strong enough script to stand on its own, one that might not reinvent the wheel but puts a bunch of established horror themes into a very original context. And add to that the very atmospheric directorial effort, complete with Mj Dixon’s trademark play with the colour scale, and a strong cast…” Search My Trash

“Yet another one of those films where the evil doll is supposed to be scary despite the fact we never see it move. It just keeps turning up places it shouldn’t be. That isn’t scary. The one scene where it attacks someone it’s obviously being thrown at them. That isn’t scary either, in fact, it’s funny.” Voices from the Balcony
