Steffen (Jake Red), the son of rich man Crane (Bill Moseley), takes his
friends Rosie (Kyle Anderson), Abby (Cody Renee Cameron), Rick (Arhtur
Marroquin), Josie (KateLynn E. Newberry) and Doc (Danni Spring) on a tour
through a dilapidated TV studio his dad has just bought and which he wants
to turn into a fancy club. The studio though has a dark history as it was
once home to a kiddie show starring ventriloquist Mr. Jolly (Bill Oberst
jr) and his dummy Handy Dandy (voiced by Jake LaMarca) - a show that was
directly linked to the disappearance of several children in the audience.
But of course, that's ancient history by now, and Mr. Jolly has long died.
Only weird things start to happen at the TV studio, and one by one
Steffen's friends are picked off and killed or severely injured by -
ventriloquist dummies having come to life on their own ...
Mr. Jolly has never really died, he's actually a 200 year old magician in
search for relics that take his powers to the next level, and Steffen's
dad has only bought the studio because he knew about the relics - but now
he has been taken captive by Mr. Jolly. And Mr. Jolly has the warped idea
to let Steffen and his dad compete in his rebooted TV show - only this
isn't a kiddie show anymore, as this time around, the stakes are the lives
of Steffen's friends ...
Ok, much of above synopsis might read
like a typical slasher, and this movie's plot sure follows the formula
rather closely - only there's nothing typical about it, as the film really
highlights the grotesque elements of its story, relishes in bizarre twists
and turns, and finds just the right light-footed approach to the
proceedings while at the same time maintaining a creepy atmosphere
throughout. And of course a solid cast doesn't hurt at all either.
fun genre entertainment for sure.
