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.

OMG...the theme song is killing me. It's perfect for this movie! It was a surprise to see Oscar Winning make-up artist Ve Neill listed in the credits. This was probably one of her earliest films (she went on to do Beetlejuice, Mrs. Doubtfire, Pirates of the Caribbean, Ed Wood, and other huge movies). I thought this was a great film -- it almost represents the birth of the genre. You really should give it a try -- unless you have Automatonophobia -- in that case, you'll want to think twice, lol. Five skulls.
Good classic slasher flic... a bit predictable but honestly I went into it knowing it was a period piece and I was definitely entertained. Classic old school
Not the best horror movie but it’s damn funny for sure
I went into this kinda bored but that quickly changed. The mannequins are creepy!!!! This would have scared the hell out of me as a child. As an adult, I appreciate it for what it is. Enjoyed it very much!
