Play with us?

Do you really want another boring blog about how we are still editing the film? I didn't think so. Would you rather look at these freaky dolls instead?

Making a documentary film that revolves around dolls makes for interesting conversations. For example. a friend and I were talking about that unshakable feeling that dolls might just spring to life in some creepy way - like a head swivel or that they might flash a maniacal smile. But what's creepier than a doll that springs to life? One that dies some horrible death?

Perhaps the charm of the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death (the dollhouse crime scenes) is that they blur reality, as well as fantasy.
