I absolutely loved Padraig Reynolds’ newest film, THE DEVIL’S DOLLS (read my review over at Fangoria). It feels like a Southern Gothic masterpiece and really knows how to hit your nerves like a ton of bricks. Opening September 16th on VOD and in theaters (the film’s opening night at Hollywood’s Arena Cinema will also host a cast and crew Q&A following the film), to celebrate, the gang over at IFC Midnight sent us these photos to get you fright fanatics excited for this one, because, well…ya should be.
A serial killer’s curse unleashes a season of slaughter in the backwoods of Mississippi. According to an ancient Guatemalan tradition, parents teach their children to allay their troubles by telling them to handmade “worry dolls” just before bedtime. But when several of these talismans—which once belonged to a notorious mass murderer—find their way into the hands of unsuspecting residents of a small Southern town, it sets off a grisly wave of bloodshed. The latest from Rites of Spring director Padraig Reynolds is a voodoo-slasher shocker bursting with scarily inventive kills. Christopher Wiehl, Kym Jackson and Tina Lifford star.
