Movie Reviews

Before "Bride of Chucky" there was...DOLLY DEAREST
Daniel W. Kelly | Long Island, NY United States | 09/28/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Where as Chucky ended up being more of a comic hero, Dolly Dearest is downright evil. With a hint of "the Exorcist" posession thrown in, she's quite the satanic doll, making this a much darker movie than even the first Child's Play. Not to mention there's just something about little girl dolls that is much more freaky than little boy dolls. Another bonus of this movie is that it stars the actress who played the mother in Pet Semetary.

Chucky definitely married the wrong doll....

I just wish the DVD had gotten a widescreen transfer rather than a FULL SCREEN. But the movie itself is highly recommended."

"I first saw this when I was like 10 and it scared me senseless. It's like Childs Play but for girls. The effects are'nt the best but the way the doll looks is better than Chucky. I reccommend this Dvd. I'm so glad it's on dvd and I will definitley buy it. I also reccommend-

"I give a lot of credit to the people who made this film. They could have treated the topic of a "killer doll" like the ugly stepchild and made it into a B-movie with very little effort. Instead, they put a lot of effort into a great creative plot, a creepy atmosphere, and they hired actors who could act. Usually every movie, by the time you're done watching, you can point to one or more actors that either didn't act well or were mis-cast. I can't say that about anyone in this film. The children, parents and rest of the cast fit very well together. They acted well, worked hard, and none of the lines they were given were lame or made you roll your eyes, which is a credit to the screenwriter too. This definitely ranks up there as one of the better killer doll movies. It feels real, it's portrayed as real and a great overall job by those involved. Watching Rip Torn act serious was a pleasant surprise after seeing him in comedic movies the last few years. If you're into possessed puppets or killer dolls definitely rent or buy this.

Other recommendations are the Chucky movies, "Dolls", "Puppet master", and "Blood dolls" (which is now my new favorite guilty pleasure movie).

Great job. Great effort. Thank you for not phoning it in."
