Eep!sode 6: Just Punt The Child
"It's time to play..."
After Elliot (Sam Bottoms), an American businessman, and his wife Marilyn (Denise Crosby) take ownership of the Dolly Dearest manufacturing company in Mexico, strange things start happening to their family. Most notably, their young daughter, Jessica (Candy Hutson), develops an unusually close bond with one of the dolls from the factory. Dolly, possessed by an evil spirit (recently unearthed from the excavation nearby, helmed by Dr. Karl Resnick) proceeds to terrorize the household and exert its influence on Jessica. Can Marilyn free her little girl from the doll's supernatural grip?
Amy and I kicked back a cold one with our boy Sanzia and discussed 1991's Dolly Dearest, a direct-to-video nasty that is certainly not just a blatant rip-off of Child's Play.
If you're (un)lucky, you may still find the odd VHS tape on eBay. The movie is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and a DVD copy will run you roughly $180.
