Better looking than Dollman, Demonic Toys are fun

Too much rehash and flashbacks of the first movies

The toys are back in town!

Brick Bardo (Tim Thomerson) is back…and he has a new love interest.  When he meets a nurse named Nurse Ginger (Melissa Behr) whose encounter with aliens left her his height, Ginger and Brick are contacted by Judith Gray (Tracy Scoggins) for help.  The toys which tortured Tracy have been reborn, and Tracy needs the help of someone Brick’s size to take them down.  Travelling back to the warehouse, Brick must deal with the toys and prevent the demon from being reborn…in Ginger!

Directed by Charles Band, Dollman vs. Demonic Toys spun off the films Dollman, Demonic Toys, and Bad Channels.  The mash-up movie has been released with Dollman and Demonic Toys on DVD in a triple-pack.

At the moment, the “versus” isn’t going well…

Dollman vs. Demonic Toys follows Full Moon Entertainment’s style of “modernizing” the monster movie (in the ’90s).  The B-Movies released by the studio were reminecent of B-Movies from the ’50s, but this feels like an old style mash-up like House of Dracula or House of Frankenstein…except Dollman and the Demonic Toys just don’t have the same quality as a Dracula, Frankenstein, or Wolfman.

The problem with this film isn’t necessarily the facing off of the Dollman and the Demonic Toys…that part has its moments.  The problem really is that the movie (like many Full Moon films) didn’t really have enough material to fill a whole film.  If Full Moon had better writers, it would have been interesting to where the movies could have ended up.  Here, the film is mostly a rehash of flashbacks from the previous films which takes up a majority of the film.  It was also pretty weak to have the heroine of Demonic Toys to go out like a chump.  This is even lazier than many of Full Moon’s features…that says something.

Baby Oopsy Daisy, you’re going to be Baby Oopsy Die-y!

The visuals of this film are pretty much on par with Demonic Toys.  This does show an improvement over Dollman which had really poor visuals.  At least with this film you have giant props and I do kind of like the new giant G.I. Joe demonic toy.

Dollman vs. Demonic Toys is a so-bad-it-is-good movie in line with most Full Moon features.  The Demonic Toys continue to be fun (though I don’t like Frank Weller taking over for Baby Oopsy Daisy…Linda O. Cook was better in Demonic Toys).  The Demonic Toys returned in Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys in 2004 and Demonic Toys 2 in 2010.
