This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I have to admit I was kind of hooked on this one from the start even with what I thought were long scenes that took me nowhere.
Rick Turner is engaged to Donna Trent and is having haunting dreams of a beautiful woman. Later Rick and Donna go to a doll shop which is aptly named Doll Shop and the owner immediately recognizes him and brings him the doll he ordered. He, of course, does not remember ordering this. While waiting to confirm the name of whoever bought it, Donna notices a doll that looks just like her and when the owner returns he informs them that someone else has requested the making of that doll.
Rick decides to take…
Dumb, silly 60's horror. It's dumb, but better with Rifftrax. There's lots of dolls.
Pretty good for a cheap horror from this period. Robert Alda has visions of a mysterious vision who lures him into a demonic voodoo cult led by Neil Hamilton ... TV's Commissioner Gordon. The first half moves at an enjoyable pace, the second half drags until the suitably entertaining climax. Bruno VeSota has a small role.
William J. "Billy The" Hole brings you white Los Angelinos practicing voodoo in a doll shop named, ironically enough, "Doll Shop." Oh, and there are some negroes thrown in for some badly dubbed drum playing and dancing. Strangely enough, this would have been more aptly named DEVIL DOLL, a title that wasn't to be taken for another two years. You really missed the boat on that one, Billy.
