Horror 101 – Episode 77: Dolls

Horror 101 – Episode 77: Dolls (1987) – June 28th, 2018

They walk. They talk. They kill!

Welcome back to the Horror 101 show! For our 77th episode we’re going back to 1987 and giving some love to another Stuart Gordon/Brian Yuzna collaboration. The Charles Band produced Dolls. Admittedly, this is very light horror but at a scant 77 minutes long, with an excellent cast and one long and stormy night in a supernatural mansion, Dolls is always moving and a lot of fun. We’ll give our take on the recent Halloween trailer and our thoughts on what its going to be like having to remove Halloween II (1981) from the Canon once its released. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Dolls!
