Ah yes, Demonic Toys. I remember seeing this film when I was a kid and for one reason or another I really liked it. This was back when I was a Full Moon fan and I rented a lot of their flicks. Now they just put out a bunch of crap that I'd like to forget about. *sigh*, what has happened to you Full Moon?
Bah anyway, I knew one day I'd end up catchin' this flick again and even to this day, I still enjoy it. Why? I have no idea. I guess this is one of those "guilty pleasure" movies. Those are the kind of movies that only you like that most people will probably not like and/or movies that you are just ashamed to admit to liking. I'm not ashamed to say I like this film. Sure it's full of cheesy effects, silly dialogue, and an unoriginal plot, but damned if it isn't fun to watch. Maybe it's just me?
The story is about a couple undercover cops trying to bust a couple crooks who are selling illegal weapons. The bust doesn't go too well and blood is spilt. The two criminals go into an old toy factory, where the blood from the wounded one gets on the ground, which releases an evil spirit that brings some of the toys to life. Now the crook, cop, and a few other people are stuck in the factory and left to fend off against the "Demonic Toys" Ahhhhhh!
What I find funny about this whole silly story and dialogue is the fact that it was written by David S. Goyer, who wrote the Blade films and not to mention Dark City and the upcoming Batman 5 flick; pretty weird. I guess he got better over time... or did he? Ha. So why do I like this movie? I guess I just find it entertaining. The effects are bad, but in a good way, and the dialogue is just too damned hilarious at times... "Hi ya fat fuck, I'm Baby Oopsie-Daisy; you lard ass; will you be my special friend? I can walk, I can talk, I can even shit my pants." Ahahaha, gotta love that doll - it has some of the funniest dialogue in the movie.
I was lucky enough to get the uncut version of this flick on DVD thanks to the guys over at XPloited DVD, so I got to see all the delicious gore, mwahahaha! Although I'm not quite sure how much was even edited out on the VHS. Either way, it's too bad there's no official US release of this sucker on DVD, cuz I'm sure I can't be the only one that likes this movie right? I think another reason why I liked this movie so much when I was younger was because I went through a killer-dolls-type faze where I just had to see every horror flick I could that had some kind of killer puppet or doll. I'm actually surprised that I haven't seen Dollman vs. Demonic Toys. I should try to check into that.
Although I really enjoy this flick and all, I had to give it a 6-rating, because even though it's entertaining, when it all comes down to it, it's just a silly cheesy horror flick. Watching this movie sure did bring back some good memories though. Ah, memories. *tear rolls down cheek* Be sure to look out for the upcoming Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys flick, which should come out sometime next year I think. The release date has changed so much, I don't know anymore. Oh well.
I personally enjoy this movie, but I know others may disagree. Either way, this is a fun cheesy horror flick that would be a good watch with some pizza and a group of buddies.
