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.

A creepy classic that unfortunately doesnt hold up as well I we hoped it would.
old movie. just took a long time. but still not as bad
That was painful, so very, very painful. It's hard to believe this came from the same guy who gave us Puppetmaster. Plot wasn't completely awful (not gonna get any lauds from me though), the performances were just shy of mediocre (at best), but the pace... and the general execution (no pun intended)... I wanted to gouge my eyes out. I mean am all good with mindless murdering psychos- I grew up with insomnia and access to paid cable in the original slice and dice heyday, but come on, this wouldn't even pass that cut.
This was another movie I seen via Joe Bob Briggs and it was KICK ASS. GREAT concept with an amazing twist. Be sure to watch this one with a mannequin near by! 5/5 Skulls baby!
