It's a small world...
Ooga Booga is a spin-off of 2005’s Doll Graveyard. It is named after the only returning character, an ancient wooden doll. Ooga Booga gets re-animated when the blood of a dead man is mixed with slushy and some lightning bolts. If you are familiar with recent Full Moon films, you know that the puppetry isn’t what it used to be. Well, guess what. It just got ten times better!
First, you get a drunken clown who doesn’t know he’s racist but owns a collection of figurines all named from racial slurs. Without him, our hero wouldn’t end up carrying the doll. Then, three funny gangsters kill a clerk and our black hero gets blamed for it... by white cops. One of them is racist and shoots the hero. Still following? Well, if there's one thing Ooga Booga hates, it's racism!
The film’s hilarious but it’s only a comedy while it exposes its characters. The dialogue rarely flows. The performances are limited. You do get a shower scene involving a puppet jerking off, for all your gratuitous needs, and more nudity eventually. You don’t need a college degree to keep up with Ooga Booga. Like Doll Graveyard, it is a mindless slasher in which the monster is the good guy.
