Plot
This film works for the same reasons 1989’s Puppetmaster, also by Full Moon Entertainment, did. The limited cinematography and effects cannot compete with something like Child’s Play, though. Although praised by horror fans, evil dolls and toys are a rare thing in horror. They require complex animatronics and puppetry that this film struggles to rig and animate decently.
It is Demonic Toys’ innocence that makes it to stand out, charm the viewers and allow them to overlook obvious visual flaws. The story is easy-going, not overly complicated but still dense. The film wants to depict an elaborate mythology despite a low budget, and succeeds against all odds. The musical signature is not just fitting but good. It seems made to scare a child, but then there is gore...
While the dolls and toys make this film an instant classic, it would've been better off without its annoyingly dubbed archvillain. He is the devil, no less, and takes away from the imaginative folklore instigated earlier because he is the only antagonist that isn’t a pure creation of the makers. Two characters are played by kids and deliver a painful performance. The rest of the cast is decent.
