4.0 out of 5 stars Before "Bride of Chucky" there was...DOLLY DEAREST September 27, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its time to play..... May 8, 2004
By Zacc
Format:VHS Tape
A demonic black maginc curse centuries old, turns the world's most beautiful doll into thw world's most sacage killer.
Now, this "dolly" has her deranged eyes aimed at a little girl named Jessica, and will do anything to possess her. Bizarre events explode into a ferocious frenzy of madness. A housekeeper is torn apart. A nightwatchman is hacked to pieces. As the body count rises and the carnage continues, Jessica loses her sould to her new "playmate".
To save his daughter, Jessica's father must enter a nightmarish world where dark powers of evil have reigned supreme...until now!
This movie is pretty good if you are into the psychotic killer doll thing, so if you like chucky or magic this movie is for you!

Although in some ways it ripps off Child's Play, it turned out to be a pretty entertaining movie. The special effects are a mixture of good and bad. The first killing scene was great but others are just plain laughable, sometimes even scary! It's some what creative. It sets out to do everything it's meant to and so I give it a four out of five star rating. Like i said, It's so bad, It's GOOOOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent doll slasher movie October 1, 2006
By Laz
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dolly Dearest!!! August 31, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
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-

Dolls(coming to dvd)

Childs PLay

The Chucky Collection(Childs PLay 2, Childs PLay 3 and, Bride Of Chucky)

I don't know this movie was a bit of joke to me. I mean if you can get past the cheesy special effects, you will probably be blocked again by the acting. At least it runs the spectrum - there is over acting, under acting and just plain bad acting. Who (s) is responsible for this...the Read family. They sinks their entire life savings into the pipe dream of Elliot Read (Sam Bottoms) to have the best little doll manufacturing plant ever. His hopes are dashed however as he and his kids visit the "state of the art" plant which has apparently been closed down for years since the original doll maker died. Apparently his real estate agent copied some impressive figures from an American Business book for all of the financials on the company. Really, hasn't Elliot ever heard of researching an investment? Maybe visit the plant you are going to buy?

On the first visit to the factory, little Jessica Read (Candy Hutson) sets her heart on one of the dolls and Dad lets her take it home. Jimmy Read (Chris Demetral) is immediately fascinated by the archeological dig next door to the doll factory. As the film progresses, Jessica becomes more and more obsessed with Dolly. Mom, Marilyn Read (Denise Crosby) begins to get worried when Jessica threatens her in a demonic voice that she will kill her if she tries to take Dolly away.

'Dolly Dearest' is not that great and it's a bit long and drawn out between the action sequences. Again, what it lacks in the acting department and initial special effects it partially makes up for with Dolly herself. When Dolly starts to mess with the Read family she gets quite animated and evil. She actually kind of freaked me out at times but I am probably not a good judge in this department because evil dolls just really spook me in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there anything creepier than lifelike dolls?
If you thought the movie Dolls was creepy, try this one. The cast does a nice job, especially the kids. The dolls are creepy and deadly, and there is even some scattered humor.
