Last Monday I chose the Scream Trilogy, and the week before that was Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Today I'm going with a little-known but TERRIFYING film. My older cousins made me watch it once when I was in second or third grade, and it still scares me to this day. So, it might not actually be all that terrifying, but I'm too chicken to watch it again and find out!
The film I'm referring to is:
The film starts out with a family, consisting of a snobbish father, his hateful new wife and his daughter, Judy finding themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere as a storm is moving in. Judy is a small girl who is quite timid and not too fond of her new stepmother.
The family realizes they are near a large mansion, so they seek shelter there. An elderly couple lives in the mansion, and soon another stranded motorist, Randy, arrives with two punk, Madonna-looking chicks he picked up along the way. The couple invites them all to stay until the storm passes.
It becomes evident nearly immediately that the old couple is extremely odd, and they reveal that they make dolls and puppets.
As they all retire to bed for the evening, we learn more about the stranded people, and that all but Randy and Judy are evil, mean or theiving people. Of course, all bad people must be punished....
The dolls begin coming to life and killing off the people who need punishing. In grotesque, freaky and horrifying manners they all start to bite the dust, one by one. We learn more about the old couple and why the dolls are killing everyone, but the information doesn't stop the murders.
The movie ends with the suggestion of a sequel, as most horror movies do.
If you're brave (which I'm not), below you can watch the original trailer for the film.
Watch it if you dare!
