Blood Dolls is a horror-comedy film released in 1999, directed by Charles Band and starring Kristopher Logan, Debra Mayer, and William Paul Burns. The movie follows the story of Virgil Travis (Logan), a wealthy businessman who collects rare and exotic items from around the world. One of his latest acquisitions is his most bizarre – he has created a group of living dolls from human parts that act and function as human beings. These dolls, however, are not just any dolls, as they are also trained assassins who are programmed to carry out his bidding.

The story begins with the introduction of the character Virgil Travis, a twisted and manipulative man who is presented as the villain of the movie. He lives in a creepy mansion, which has a chamber devoted to his prized possessions, the Blood Dolls. The dolls are three-foot-tall humanoids that have been created using real human parts, and are presented as his personal assistants – but in reality, they are deadly assassins deployed to carry out his wishes. The dolls are equipped with various weapons, including guns, knives, and poison darts, and are fully capable of carrying out complex missions with ease.

As the story progresses, it is revealed that Virgil has a rival, a greedy businessman named Mr. Mascaro (J. J. North), who is after Virgil's wealth and his prized Blood Dolls. He sends a group of mercenaries to Virgil's mansion to steal the dolls, leading to a series of bloody and hilarious showdowns as the dolls fight back to defend themselves, while Virgil watches in delight from his chamber room.

The dolls are the star of the show and quickly become the movie's main attraction, killing everyone in their path as they are programmed to do so. However, throughout the movie, it becomes clear that the dolls are more than just mere machines because they seem to be developing emotions and personalities of their own. Their limited language skills and mechanical movements tend to convey a childlike innocence, making them a sympathetic group of characters that one cannot help but root for.

Debra Mayer plays Virgil's assistant, who is a former fiancée of his and who has a deep-seated hatred towards him. In contrast, Virgil is smitten with another one of his employees, his right-hand girl Kinky (Jacky Ying), who becomes a prominent figure in the movie's final act. The story's leading man, Kristopher Logan, does a fantastic job of portraying the twisted and sadistic side of Virgil's personality.

The movie's special effects are cheesy but fun, and the audience is treated to some seriously entertaining scenes that combine horror and comedy. The dolls' appearance is unsettling, yet they manage to be humorous at the same time, which sets the tone for the entire movie. Their actions may be gruesome, but the exaggerated nature of the scenes makes them more enjoyable to watch.

The movie's soundtrack is upbeat and contributes to the movie's fun and humorous atmosphere. While the script does not have any deep meaning or hidden messages, the dialogue is amusing, keeping the audience engaged throughout the film's runtime.

Overall, Blood Dolls is a fun and quirky horror-comedy movie that has a unique storyline and an excellent set of characters. While the special effects may be lacking for modern audiences, the dolls' performances and the film's humor make it a movie worth watching. Fans of horror-comedy movies will undoubtedly find Blood Dolls amusing and enjoyable, and it is definitely a movie that has stood the test of time. It is still an enjoyable and entertaining film to watch over two decades later.

In conclusion, Blood Dolls is a campy and humorous movie that is sure to entertain its audience. With its bizarre storyline and memorable characters, the film is a must-see for horror-comedy fans.

Blood Dolls is a 1999 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.4.
