Dee Wallace (E.T., CUJO, THE HOWLING) stars in DOLLS, a new supernatural thriller from first-time feature director Cuyle Carvin that will be released on DVD and VOD in the U.S. on July 2. The screenplay is by Justin Hawkins & Josh Hawkins, with Jeff Miller (OUIJA HOUSE, THE TOYBOX) also contributing to the story. Wallace plays a neighbor who knows about the dolls and their ties to the house. The movie also stars frequent Miller collaborator Tom Downey (AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN), as well as newcomer Trinity Simpson, Bret Green (CBS’s THE INSPECTORS), Elise Muller (BAGHEAD), Melinda deKay, and Robert R. Ryel.
Miller (who also produced the recent DEATH KISS and THE RUSSIAN BRIDE) produced through his company Millman Productions, along with Robert Michael Ryan (NECROSIS). Carvin and Ryan previously directed and produced the “Dark Corners” horror anthology series. Josh Hawkins and Ben Demaree were Co-Producers on DOLLS, with Demaree also serving as Director of Photography. Veronica Rodarte handled makeup FX. Ken Stachnik was Gaffer. Korey Rowe edited. Holly Amber Church composed the score.
Synopsis: DOLLS concerns a struggling children’s book author and his rebellious teenage daughter who move into a house they’ve inherited and find mysterious dolls in the attic. They soon learn that the dolls have a sinister — and deadly — past.
What seems like a good potential movie seems to fall flat for me in this trailer as it merely appears to be another Annabelle film. Not too fond of the doll faces either. They come across as more comical and corny than anything else.
