Review

When Kate was a little girl, her mother forced Kate to give up her dolls. Seal them in boxes and store them away. (We only later discover why.) Kate especially hated parting from one doll -- an ugly & guardian doll; given to Kate by her grandmother from the Old Country. A Guardian Doll protects little girls from harm. In the Old Country, mangled bears and wolves are sometimes found outside little girls' homes, with tracks leading from the house. Legend has it that the Guardian Doll has come to life, to kill the nearby threat. Now Kate is an adult, newly married and pregnant and living in Kentucky. Away from her mother, Kate is finally able to unpack her dolls, and fill the nursery with them. Even if the baby's a boy, he'll have dolls aplenty! 'You sure have a lot of dolls', hubby Jason comments. Everybody says that to Kate. All should be well so long as Kate is not threatened. But she does feel threatened. Jason's old flame, Samantha, keeps dropping by. Kate is jealous. She learns that Jason's mom was hoping Jason and Samantha would marry. Kate's jealousy grows. She talks to her Guardian Doll. POV shots indicate that the doll is looking back, aware and listening... The past decade has seen an explosion of grassroots, independent horror films, many of them dramatically derivative and technically slipshod. Amateurs with a camcorder, but no patience to learn lighting or sound, remaking their favorite Hollywood remakes. Filming their friends in bad zombie makeup, or playing yet another sleazy torturer or sordid serial killer. From this milieu, The Creepy Doll emerges as welcome relief. Nicely composed shots (a rarity in indie horror filmmaking), careful lighting, appropriate mood music, complex characters performed by a capable cast, and an interesting supernatural tale peppered with dramatic nuances. For instance, when the brooding Kate walks by a school, she sees an ominous world -- a man photographing girls at play from behind a wall; another man yelling at a child -- yet these details turn out to be innocent. This scene both unnverves audiences, and supports Kate's character by suggesting that she is overly imaginative. Does she often imagine threats? Does she only imagine that Samantha is a threat? Does she only imagine that her Guardian Doll has real powers? The Creepy Doll is the sort of film where one can debate whether the doll is truly magic, or if it's all in Kate's head. I think the evidence onscreen clearly indicates the former -- and happily, that also makes for a better horror story. Evil dolls -- be they toys, voodoo dolls, or ventriloquist dummies -- are a horror staple. Among the best are the Zuni fetish doll from Trilogy of Terror and Talky Tina from the original Twilight Zone's Living Doll episode. What's so scary about dolls? To paraphrase The Creepy Doll's Samantha, 'Some children react badly to things that resemble humans. Robots...dolls...' The Creepy Doll takes this traditional monster and effectively interweaves its supernatural tale (of an evil doll) with a domestic drama (of a jealous wife), so that The Creepy Doll works on both dramatic levels, each supporting and playing off of the other. Kentucky-based Big Biting Pig Production has long striven for originality and quality. Their fifth film, Hell Is Full, featured an experimental, nonlinear story structure, despite its well worn zombies. Their first film, The 3rd Floor (a ghost tale) was a mixed bag in terms of acting, and the lighting was rough. Yet even that crude effort held my interest and entertained, because of its emphasis on character and story. The Creepy Doll is Big Biting Pig's sixth film, their most polished work to date. --THOMAS M SIPOS - Communist Vampires

We've all known them, those women who collect those dolls. And, inevitably, their homes are filled with shelves and shelves of dead eyed, porcelain frights that feel like they're staring at you. Now, that might be a bit of an editorial on my feelings about doll collectors, but the new movie, The Creepy Doll, from Big Biting Pig Productions will have you jumping on my band wagon pretty quickly! Jason and Kate Carraway are newlyweds. They've just moved into a new home and are getting settled. And, to top things off, Kate is expecting the couple's first child. As the two begin settling in, Jason's family starts coming around to help and to visit with the couple. Jason is right at home, but Kate seems less than excited to have people around. In fact, the only things that Kate likes to have around (besides Jason) are her dolls. She's put together the baby's room and has filled it with her doll collection...including one doll that's particularly creepy to everyone who see it! It's not long before everyone begins to wonder about Kate and her dolls, especially the creepy one that seems to be her favorite. It all builds to an ending that will have you putting your dolls back in their boxes and out on the attic! The Creepy Doll is just another in a string of great movies from PJ Woodside and Big Biting Pig! Its fun, it's scary and it's done in a way that makes it feel realistic. I'm giving The Creepy Doll 4 out of 4 cigars; it's just a very cool, old fashioned 'scary doll' movie...with a bit of a twist! --BRIAN MORTON - Rogue Cinema

The synopsis of this film is Kate and Jason, newlyweds and expecting their first child, move into Jason's old childhood home. Kate, obviously has a troubled past with her family, and she just found out Jason's old flame, Samantha has been hanging about. After unpacking her childhood dolls, one of which seems to give everyone else but Kate the heebeejeebies, marital tensions rise, but we're not sure which is the true menace...The Creepy Doll? Or Kate's own suspicious mind? Written and Directed by PJ Woodside, with Big Biting Pig productions, who also gave us Widow & Goat Sucker and Hell is Full, also starring Kristine Renee Farley, Justin Veazey and Steve Hudgins, this is a wonderful addition to the horror genre, giving us a great twist to the 'scary doll' branch of the genre. The writing is full of relationships, with all the complications and between-the-lines readings all that entails. PJ has written a wonderful web of former relationships, misunderstandings, unrequited loves and couples with unresolved feelings. Trust a woman to use feelings, relationships and suspicious minds as a background for what has to be one of the creepiest films I've seen this year. As young bride Kate gets to know Jason's family, she seems to mistrust ex-flame and lifelong friend Samantha more and more. And the longer Kate's dolls are in the house, the more emotional and mysterious Kate becomes toward Jason and his family. Now can we assume it's just pregnancy hormones? Or are the dolls, particularly the Creepy Doll that Kate calls her guardian doll influencing her? The audience sees her continuously talking to her grandmother, giving reference to her grandmother's many sayings and words of wisdom. One particularly chilling scene, the housewarming party Kate and Jason's mother throws, Kate is painfully aware of how 'outside' the family she still is, despite being Jason's wife. The support system of Jason's family seem to have many stories with Jason and Samantha, and at the end of dinner,Jason and Samantha are in the living room, talking alone and seeming very intimate. Kate is watching this intently, as a little girl unwittingly walks into the dolls room....We hear a scream, and see the little girl flee the room, frightened to death and in tears. We've seen nothing actually happen but the menace in Kate's face as she watches her husband with Samantha, and the terror the little girl expresses is a great vehicle to put the audience on edge and begs the question, which will be the true threat, the Creepy Doll or is Kate hiding a past more troubled than she lets on? The acting is first rate, the direction is fantastic. Some of the camera angles are a bit awkward, but the imagery and symbolism is just brilliant. The film starts out showing us a progression of photographs as we hear Kate talk about her new home and husband with her grand- mother, the photos of a happy, lovely girl with her dolls...One in particular, with strange, dark eyes....As the photos progress and the girl ages, her smile fades into a frown, until we see the grown up Kate in her new home, giving us the idea that her childhood wasn't as happy as she'd have liked. Starring Farley and Veazey as Kate and Jason, and the wonderful Jessica Cook as Samantha who is our femme fatale, but also turns out to be the Ahab, meaning the one who uncovers the protagonists' past, Cindy Maples and Randy Hardesty as Emily and Dick, Jason's parents who try to help Kate fit in and feel welcome to the family. Just look at the doll on the dvd case cover, and tell me you're going to watch this with the lights off.... 8/10 --MARI LYNNE RUPP - Infernal Dreams

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars My first Prime video and I enjoyed it January 31, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This film is creepy and worth watching. An Indie film with all the right touches of creepiness including a doll that they must have had special made for this movie! Ms. Farley gives a performance that is worthy of 4-stars and the other down home characters do a more than acceptable job of keeping you entertained. Wrapping a movie around a "creepy" doll is not new, who hasn't seen the "Chuckie" series but in this case doing production in the county adjacent to where I grew up made it worth the effort to watch another doll-oriented production to see what local sites and talent I might recognize. I hope to see more from this young indie film-maker. Good production, editing and script. Nice to see a movie that doesn't have to use vulgar language consistently to make its points.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot better than expected February 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It does have it's cheesy moments, but overall this definitely comes through as a Horror Flick. The doll truly is creepy. What I liked about this low-budget production was the feel that this is your family next door, with the "typical" overbearing mother-in-law, the wife who has a strange past etc. The acting was o.k., overall not a superbad movie, because it's not trying to be something it is not, if you get what I mean.

3.0 out of 5 stars this movie was watchable and 'creepy' January 4, 2014
Format:DVD
creepy low-budget film, good acting and believable sets - special effects a little weak, also its not the best quality picture- it will not show off the capabilities of your new high-def TV; story moves along well and most of the scenes and dialogue are logical; - its a little bizarre and weird but check it out -- its much better than many 'big budget' efforts

The lower rated reviews for this film seem to think a character driven horror movie must be "campy" to be good. That their expectations were not met does not surprise me. THE CREEPY DOLL is not campy. It's a serious film about an extremely trouble young woman that happens to be many months pregnant, and her "guardian doll." Definitely not a gorefest,THE CREEPY DOLL is a methodically built psychological horror-thriller, an excellent example of Regional Film Making, distinguished in that it is the result of a singular creative vision, conceive and executed with disarmingly twisted care by writer-director PJ Woodside. Don't expect a formula horror pic. Woodside takes time to build credible, consistent characters, while, at the same time, revealing the troubling circumstances that exist between this newly married, soon to be mother and father. Woodside takes for granted that her viewers will pay attention and respond to the gradual, disarmingly realistic way the crisis at the heart of this marriage is revealed and, in the final shocking act, resolved. The film's low key development makes what happens, if one pays attention, jolting because it's all very realistic and believable; there are none of the regular horror movie short cuts to be found in the low budget slasher pics, that actually try to be campy but usually just end up stupid and not particularly funny. The leading actress, Kristine Farley, gives a performance that creeps up on you. What at first seems modest and self effacing in this mother-to-be becomes, by degrees almost impossible to detect, something else entirely. This may not be your typical horror-thriller, but that, I contend, is what makes it rather special and well worth your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Underground Horror June 14, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
As a part of the underground horror scene, it's great to see a film like this...well directed and wonderfully acted. I think that's what threw me a little. I don't usually see acting of this caliber in a low budget horror film. Especially not in a mainstream horror film with good looking people who's wooden acting puts Pinocchio to shame. Well done!

Movie did it's job, it's obviously not big budget but while the 2 main characters could have put a bit more life into the parts of their acting that weren't suppose to be creepy or creeped out, part of the issue with the female lead IS her lack of emotion, so she's supposed to be stilted like that from childhood. So it works. I think also we are use to superbeautiful creatures on screen and not your normal everyday looking people, and this was set in small town america with people that actually look like what you see in REAL life in these locales. Dolls were creepy and creepy doll just looks creepy, the vibes and creep factor build at a nice pace without you falling asleep and without trying to scare the life out of you at every possible turn. People who want a decent popcorn popper for free should not be disappointed...if you want Kill Bill level of gore feel free to bypass, it's a bit bloody at the end but otherwise safe for the medium squeamish. Good movie for the budget it's on and we need to support stories from indies that actually run true to form!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Don't Dawdle!"... January 14, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A young couple, Kate (who is pregnant) and Jason, move into a new house owned by the husband's parents. In addition to the obvious hazards of such a living arrangement, Kate seems to have some paranoiac issues going on. When Jason's ex-girlfriend shows up, Kate begins to suspect the worst. Her mother in-law only makes things more tense. Then there's Kate's vast doll collection. She has a VERY strong attachment to them, especially the one she calls her "guardian doll", It's not long before strange sounds and mysterious occurrences start plaguing the couple. Is Kate's "guardian doll" behind the sudden weirdness? What does this all have to do w/ Kate's mother and stepfather? Is Kate's "hormonal" state the reason that she's been talking to her doll so much? If Jason's not careful, he just might find out! THE CREEPY DOLL is a low-budget horror film. In spite of its financial constraints, it manages to use a good storyline and decent characters to full effect. Also, allowing us to see through "doll vision" is a nice, unsettling touch. Don't go into it expecting explosive action or intense gore (at least, not until the final 20 minutes!), and you just might enjoy it...
