Charles Band, writer and director, thought he’d ride the Puppetmaster wave he created ten years prior to Blood Dolls, which was in turn inspired by films like Trilogy of Terror and Child’s Play. It has its moments, it has a singular ambiance, but we’ve seen better from Full Moon Entertainment. If it was more about the dolls and less about the doll master, we’d have something more interesting.
The puppets are treated like protagonists. Their victims aren’t sympathetic. Also, what they can achieve a human could do better, which defeats their whole purpose. If you enjoy character depth, commentary or philosophy, looks elsewhere. This is the adult version of a film for children; that is, with a dominatrix and a kidnapped victim strapped to a doll-converting machine in her undies.
The puppet animation is limited but not so bad. Charles Band attempts to perfect his formula. Or perhaps he’s just piggy backing on previous successes. Why not both? These films were more marketable, though. They weren’t about dolls and a million other things. And, by the way, these aren’t dolls. They’re figurines. Blood Dolls is a cool title but the film isn’t great.
