This review is from: The Demonic Toys [DVD] (DVD)
Full Moon Entertainment...love them or hate them you know what you're getting when you see the Logo and Charles Band's name.
The story is about a cop who is chasing down 2 suspects when she gets trapped in a warehouse. Blood spilt on a certain spot triggers the awakening of a demon who then sends the titular demonic toys out on a rampage in a bid to be reborn.
Not of course forgetting an inept security guard and Mark, a delivery boy for Chunky Chicken.
This is good fun and only just falls short of 4 stars.
The demonic toys are great characters, only not quite as memorable as the creations in the Puppet Master series. With one exception...Baby Oopsie Daisy.
Dangerous and foul mouthed this character gets the best lines and gives some genuine laugh out loud moments, especially during the encounter with the security guard.
Continuity errors, plot holes and many more faults, but I've always been a fan of low budget movies and as I said, you know what you're getting when you watch anything produced by Charles Band.
I'd like to see him go all out on the gore one day, as I dont think he's produced anything really bloody but still, this is an entertaining little film.

No, it'll be the wonderful toys from 'Dolls' the first ever horror film about killer toys, as directed by Stuart Gordon, that these creations won't match, 'Puppet Master' was dire-and don't even start me on the non-existent sequels.

I agree, "Dolls" is better. But killer toys in horror films can be traced back earlier: The Great gabbo, Asylum, Xtro etc.
The "Puppet Master" sequels are inferior, but they DO exist! ;)
