Comments: A mother takes her son out to a toy store to find him something to make him more relaxed at night and to feel safer. The toy shop owner tells them a tale.
The first tale is about a leprechaun. It is a dark night and the house is poorly lite. The setting of mother, daughter, and son is perfect for the beginning of a horror story. A leprechaun doll shows up and it is creepy looking.
The mother while cleaning the fireplace finds something. Things are happening to her.
This is a low budget film. Not a big cast and not much for special effects.
There is a build-up of suspense. When the leprechaun attacks it is funny looking. You will laugh as much as be scared. The ending does have some frightening aspects to it.
The toy store owner will go back to between tales. He is one strange guy.
The next tale is about a woman, Abby who likes dolls. She has one doll Patty that is more special than the rest. The woman has obvious mental problems. Are they all in her head or are they real? Is Patty the cause of her problems or is she. Patty does make one of Abby’s wishes come true. The story does have some unpredictable moments in it.
The third tale has the boy in the story getting a clown doll. He takes it home. Now this boy’s dad is a mean guy and he hates the boy. So now the boy has Giggles. This tale ends pretty much how you would expect it to. The special effects are good on the doll.
These stories will not terrify you but they may scare you a little and make you take a second look at the next doll you see.
