Written, produced and directed by Scott Jeffrey (Spider in the Attic; The MutationBad Nun: Deadly VowsDon’t SpeakCupidClownDoll).

Our review:

The Curse of Humpty Dumpty is a definite improvement on other Scott Jeffrey productions with decent performances from most of the cast, especially Nicola Wright, and a decidedly creepy doll. The theme of dementia is explored in a way that most horror movies just skate over making for a very downbeat yet more considered experience.

The film’s low budget still shows here and there – an antique shop is unconvincingly rendered and Antonia Johnstone’s police officer seems to have no accoutrements and a half-baked uniform – but there are signs that with a little more time and care Jeffrey’s no-frills fare could be quite good rather than merely ok. Certainly worth a watch if doll horror is your thing.

Other reviews:

“There was a lot of potential here to become something fun, emotional and claustrophobic, but instead it was just… a lot of talking and bitching. At least the flashback scenes helped some. Maybe director Scott Jeffrey wanted to rely on real feelings instead of an onslaught of murder and mayhem. Maybe the “deep routed horror” genre just isn’t for me.” Horror Society

” …a powerful look at dementia and the impact it has on sufferers and their families. All wrapped up in a film that makes you question whether anything we’re seeing is real. Anything. And this, unlike some of Jeffrey’s films which lean towards a more “campy” nature, is a very, very, downbeat film. One driven by a superb performance from actress Nicola Wright who, in the past couple of years has seemingly jumped feet first into the horror genre…” 5/5 Nerdly
