Where the "Good Guy Doll" was taken over by the spirit of a serial killer, the doll(s) in this film are not taken over in quite the same way. The "Child's Play" films all had a direct possession from one man (or his spirit) that wrecked havoc in his search for his most compatible human host - Andy. Director Maira Lease had the right idea in making not one, but lots of the same doll corrupted in to walking, talking, vicious little menaces. And we are not talking anything as comical as Andre Toulan's puppets (Puppet Master).
The story goes that just before the Read family move to their new home in Mexico, an archaeologist accidentally releases a devil child spirit, one that "supposedly" worshiped Satan. The husband has invested his savings and planned to re-open the nearby doll factory (near where the archaeologist had died). Finding many dolls perfectly made and left by the previous owner, he picks one at random and gives it to his little girl, Jessica. It just so happens, unfortunately, that the doll he gave his daughter is in fact already alive and very much intending to do as much damage as possible to the family. The child and the spirit within the doll form a connection over time and it soon shows that the nasty little doll can make the little Jessica do things, even jump her mother to attack her.
Now, the clever thing that the producers did was not to show you any direct involvement from the so-called "spirit" and the possessed doll until it was almost unavoidable, which was towards the end of the film. The suspense is very well-played, both from the story and the actors. Such things as the finely polished doll's shoes' quick "tip tap" sound that it makes as it walks around unseen, or the midnight escapes of Jessica following her doll in to the back garden Doll House. At one point, you do see the doll walking like a little girl in to the Doll House with a ghostly voice calling: "Jessie, come and play".
With that said, the film is predictable in places but if you enjoy original horror and suspense with some good murders and good acting with a story that keeps you until the end, then this is one for your collection.
