On the B-Movie scale:
twostar


Demonic Toys 2 opens with a long credits sequence where gloved hands take the exploded bits and chunks of the toys and sew them back together. Only Baby Oopsy Daisy & Jack Attack get this treatment, presumably because they were the only salvageable toys from all the explosive shotgun blasts to the face, etc… it’s not the budget, I swear. One can imagine that this is essentially what happened in Charles Band’s mind as the characters had sat unused for a very long time. Eighteen years after the original, Full Moon finally decided to give the toys a proper sequel, but unfortunately it’s hardly worth the effort.

Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys (2004)

Starring Corey Feldman, Vanessa Angel, Danielle Keaton, Silvia Suvadova, Nikoli Sotirov, Dessislava Maicheva, Velizar Binev, Angelina Hadjimitova, Anton Falk

Puppet Cast: Blade, Jester, Pinhead, Six Shooter, Baby Oopsy Daisy, Jack Attack, Grizzly Teddy

Directed by Ted Nicolaou

Expectations: Extremely low, this is a knock-off Puppet Master movie made for the Sci-Fi channel. There’s no way it’s good.

Finally, the moment Full Moon fans have waited for! Two giant Full Moon franchises collide in an epic tale of good vs. evil! Except instead of Full Moon, the Sci-Fi Channel produced it and it’s awful? Yep, sad but true. It does have Corey Feldman if that sweetens the deal any… yeah, didn’t think it would. Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys is a non-canon tale of the two groups meeting up, aping a bit of both series’ mythology and combining everything into a jumbled mess. Corey Feldman is Robert Toulon, a descendant of the puppet master who is trying to perfect the puppet animation formula. Meanwhile the head of Sharpe Toys wants to capture the toys for some reason that isn’t entirely clear (even after watching the entire film), and she also has made a deal with Bael to handover Toulon’s blood to fulfill some ancient pact.

Dollman vs. Demonic Toys (1993)

Starring Tim Thomerson, Tracy Scoggins, Melissa Behr, Phillip Brock, Phil Fondacaro, R.C. Bates, Willie C. Carpenter, Peter Chen

Directed by Charles Band

Featured Toys: Baby Oopsy Daisy, Jack Attack, Mr. Static, Zombietoid, Grizzly Teddy (flashback)

Expectations: Moderate. I liked Dollman. I liked Demonic Toys.

On the general scale:
onehalfstar

On the B-Movie scale:
twohalfstar


Dollman vs. Demonic Toys serves as a sequel to three Full Moon films, the two in the title and Bad Channels. Following the events of Bad Channels, where an alien took over a radio station and shrunk beautiful women down to Dollman size, Dollman finds himself heading down the road to see if he can meet up with the girl who didn’t get restored to full-size. The scene that opens the film is the same as the one that follows the credits of Bad Channels. Meanwhile, Tracy Scoggins from Demonic Toys is staking out the toy warehouse where all the demonic shit went down. A bum dies and his blood gives life anew to the toys, who flee into an air duct before Scoggins can blast them like she did towards the end of Demonic Toys. Got all that?

Directed by Peter Manoogian

Featured Toys: Baby Oopsy Daisy, Jack Attack, Grizzly Teddy, Mr. Static

On the general scale:
twostar

On the B-Movie scale:
threestar


Yet another film in Charles Band’s long pedigree of films featuring pint-sized murderers, Demonic Toys has a lot to live up to. Because so many of his films share these mini-attackers, they could easily run together if you’re not careful when crafting them. Demonic Toys actually manages to set itself apart from the crowd pretty quickly, thanks to hard-edged dialogue and a fair amount of graphic gore and fun special FX.
