Clash of the Titans – Dollman vs. Demonic Toys (1993)

After Dollman, Demonic Toys and Bad Channels; Full Moon would follow it up with Dollman vs. Demonic Toys – a title that would spell it out for the viewer and tell them exactly what they were going to get with this film.

So it is that Brick Bardo, the aforementioned ‘Dollman,’ and a man stuck upon the planet Earth at less than a foot tall is finding himself a little lonely. What is there to do but seek out quite possibly the only other person like himself on the entire planet, one Nurse Ginger who has met a similar fate herself. The two hit it off when they eventually meet, but are interrupted when former cop Judith Grey enlists their help to fight off some lively toys of a demonic nature.

At just over an hour long, the film’s pace never lacks and there are no wasted moments other than the flashbacks to the movies that preceded this one, though helpful for those viewers not familiar with them or needing a little catch-up. As always, Tim Thomerson does a great job at leading the cast, while Tracy Scoggins ends up with a bit part – her character being killed not long after entering the warehouse where the toys reside. Melissa Behr rounds out the cast as the damsel in distress once again and altogether, the three of them make it all quite a bit of fun. Best of all though are the toys that are just as vicious as ever, including Baby Oopsy Daisy being far more evil and independent than seen during its last appearance. As such, there are numerous memorable scenes within, but none creepier than when Baby Oopsy Daisy is looking to procreate with Ginger in the dollhouse and it definitely adds a layer of horror to a film that was slightly light on it beforehand.

Though it would not be the best movie in the loosely connected series featuring toys and dolls, Dollman vs. Demonic Toys is a perfect example of how to crossover various properties into one, cohesive and enjoyable film.
