Students David (Christian James), James (Gunner Willis), Shelby (Kirsten Ray) and Donna (Leah Wiseman) want to investigate the urban legend of Crinoline Head, who as a boy (Andrew Wicklum) in the eighties spent several months next to his mum (Suzie Haines), a master dollmaker, who in the 90s, after an extended stay at an insane asylum killed a couple of teens, with the professor of our group (Jason Vail) being only one of two who escaped ... but he was killed back in the day, right? And just because his body wasn't found doesn't mean the premises where all this happened somewhere in the middle of nowhere, USA, where there's no cellphone reception, are still a threat to anyone, right? Sure, there's the horny groundkeeper (Debbie Rochon), and there are our heroes' co-eds (Elizabeth Maers, Nicholas A. Sweezer, Cameron Turner) who want to hijack their project, but that's not a threat, merely a bother. And since David and Shelby really get close to one another, this bit of a bother is worth it, right?

Wrong, because Crinoline Head, the killer with the dollface, is still around, and he likes nothing better than slaughtering teens - with one or two horny groundkeepers thrown in just for good measure ...


Now Dollface is by no means a film that has re-invented cinema, not even genre cinema - nope, it's a slasher movie that stays quite true to the formula ... and yet, it works better than most slashers of late, mainly because it on one hand doesn't take itself all that seriously, but on the other avoids the moronic, it doesn't try to be more than it is or smarter than it is, but it doesn't dumb things down for the audience either. Matter of fact, Dollface takes a pretty light-footed approach to the genre, and while it delivers all the shocks you are to expect from a film like this, it does so in an often tongue-in-cheek way. And that it's carried by a bunch of interesting and likeable characters embodied by a competent cast (with Debbie Rochon's hilarious performance taking the crown, as was to be expected) and moves along at a steady pace doesn't hurt either of course. It's sure to make a great party movie, but if you're at all into horror, you'll probably find yourself enjoying this even without mates and beer ...
