DOLL FACE (2021) Review of weird doll horror

 

‘We all turn in the end’

Doll Face is a 2021 American horror film about a young woman that inherits her grandmother’s condo which is full of creepy dolls.

Written and directed by Stuart Paul the Jekyll Hyde Productions movie stars Alix Villaret, Steven Paul, Patrick Hogue and Jeremiah Benjamin.

Plot:

When the beautiful yet timid Marmalade (Alix Villaret) inherits her grandmother’s palatial condo, there is an odd string attached: she must care for each and every doll in her grandmother’s extensive collection, or lose her inheritance.

Quickly, she begins to notice that something-or someone-sinister is at work as one by one, the dolls are found murdered. Marmalade soon learns that an evil curse may be to blame and that she must break it before it comes for her…

Review:

“There’s lots of footage of the doll’s faces at night with unintelligible voices whispering in the background. Stuart Gordon made that work in Dolls. Here it’s just boring and repetitive. Eventually, the plot involves a homicidal, life-size toy soldier and the curse of Spunkneck (Lenny Rosenberg, Nun’s Deadly Confession) an insane doll maker. But any attempt at being scary is counteracted by horrible attempts at humour and intentionally over the top acting.” [read more at:] Voices from the Balcony
