  • Surprisingly good horror film

    I watched this expecting it to be kind of cheesy MST3K-type fun but it turned out to be quite interesting. My husband rolled his eyes when he came into the room and saw what I was watching, but within a couple of minutes he was sucked in, too. There's virtually no real gore or blood (it was the 60s, after all) but it manages to create a good amount of tension and unease. It also manages to keep you guessing precisely who the murderer is until about 10 minutes before the end (if you haven't read the synopsis here at TCM that gives it away!). I've recommended it to a couple of people who like horror movies; it's not a masterpiece, but it's good solid entertainment.

    Excellent horror/mystery film which has gained a sort of cult status over the years. Members of a chamber group are murdered one by one; a little doll with the face of each victim is left next to the corpse. Inspector Holloway discovers that the victims were all part of a military tribunal who convicted an innocent man 20 years previously. Plenty of suspense, good direction by Freddie Francis, and fine performances by Patrick Wymark, Margaret Johnston, Alexander Knox, and John Standing. Known in Germany as "Der Puppen-Morder" (The Doll Murders).
