Welcome to Horrible Films for Horrible People. This time around I honestly wasn’t looking for a horrible film. I mean it. It all started last night when I decided to check out Charles Band’s film Dangerous Worry Dolls also known as Dangerous Chucky Dolls or Parasite Dolls. Regardless of which title you know it by, they all sound bad.
Charles Band is known for making killer puppets or killer doll films so this film didn’t sound too far fetched. No matter how cheesy they are, I usually love Full Moon films but this is by far the worst Full Moon film I have seen. I’m sorry Charles, I still adore you.
Dangerous Worry Dolls is set in a women’s prison where we meet out main character, Eva. We aren’t really sure why Eva or any of the other inmates are there. Eva simply wants to serve her time without any trouble so she can get back to being with her daughter. One day when Eva’s daughter comes to visit her mom, she gives Eva a small coffin shaped box that has tiny voo-doo like dolls from Guatemala in it. We fast forward a bit and Eva’s problems just keep piling: She’s constantly being pestered by Killa Kim, a drug dealer who wants Eva to help her and her crew export the drugs. The warden, Ms. Ivar is a rude old bag who says she knows Eva’s “type“. A security guard named Carl sexually abuses Eva and even forces her to perform amateur porno movies in the basement when everyone else is asleep. There’s only one other security guard in that whole prison. No one ever wakes up. No one ever notices. Ever. And to top it off, Eva’s daughter doesn’t even have a name.
I normally don’t have a problem with lower budget films because I look at the film’s direction, storyline and and performances but those were all bad here. That’s all. The acting is poor. And the storyline is dry and ridiculous. When the film first starts it comes across like a dramatic Lifetime movie.
Overall, I simply cannot recommend this film to anyone. It’s barely there, it’s just over 70 minutes. Perhaps it’s worth looking into if you’re major Charles Band fan. Otherwise, it doesn’t offer much of anything.
