It’s almost Thanksgiving. A time to carve up turkeys while some maniacal serial killer in the backwoods of Mississippi is carve up people! Oh the humanity! A serial killer’s curse unleashes a season of slaughter in the grisly slasher The Devil’s Dolls. Available December 6, 2016, from Scream Factory, in conjunction with IFC Midnight, this visceral film goes beyond the typical midnight slasher, featuring an incredibly intense, tightly-paced story and character-driven Southern Gothic thrills.
According to an ancient Guatemalan tradition, parents teach their children to allay their troubles by giving them handmade “worry dolls” just before bedtime. But when several of these talismans — which once belonged to a notorious mass murderer — find their way into the hands of unsuspecting residents of a small Southern town, it sets off a grisly wave of bloodshed. The latest from Rites of Spring director Padraig Reynolds is a voodoo-slasher shocker bursting with scarily inventive kills.
