Directed by David Schmoeller
Five friends are hunted by a creepy killer after stopping to visit a roadside museum in this slasher that counts Stephen King as one of its biggest fans. After car trouble, the gang goes to visit a creepy museum filled with eerie mannequins which may be alive. Director David Schmoeller's debut bares the mark of his teachers - surreal and shock-loving directors Luis Bunuel (UN CHIEN ANDALOU) and Alejandro Jodorowsky (SANTA SANGRE). Ten years later, Schmoeller would create and direct the cult horror series PUPPETMASTER, which also deals with deadly dolls.

That movie was absolutely amazing, a classic slasher that still influences movies today (e.g. The Strangers) A fun watch, doesn't feel dated.
Creepy, creative and fun. I want a future Halloween costume to feature a singing mannequin head. Also fairly certain this movie helped inspire the Teddy Perkins episode of Atlanta.
#1 most embarrassing movie on Ve Neil's resume. random mannequins screaming at you are just not scary at all. /- 1 skull for the most WTF?!? final ending scene in recent memory.
Wow. Very creepy, and messed up film. The first 3rd of the movie was hard to get through for me because the script was just awful, but once things got going I was pulled in. I was terrified of mannequins as a child so I knew this would be a good one for me.
The real terror comes from the disembodied mannequins. The fun comes from the B-list acting and the terrible plot. Definitely worth a watch, but dont expect too much from it.
