Blood Dolls is a 1999 direct-to-video comedyhorror film written and directed by Charles Band. The story was conceived by Robert Talbot (Band).[1]


Virgil Travis is a wealthy, soulless psychopath who lives in seclusion in his mansion home with his dwarf butler (Phil Fondacaro) and his murderous, clown make-up-wearing maniac right-hand man. Tortured and forcibly mutated as a child by a woman who put him through body transforming procedures, Virgil has an abnormally sized head. Basking in the suffering, degradation, pain, and death of others, Virgil has already killed, and kidnapped a female rock group that he keeps imprisoned in his basement to help satisfy his constant need for perverse amusement. Never satisfied, though, Virgil decides that he will once again try to fill the emptiness that exists within him, and so creates a trio of deformed, living dolls to systematically murder any and all people who have ever wronged him. What Virgil doesn't anticipate, though, is meeting his match and finding love, both of which come in the form of a woman who is even more evil and twisted than he is.

The film has 2 different endings:

  1. After his new wife sees his deformed head, she is horrified, so the dolls attack her while Virgil has the house filled with poison gas. Ms. Fortune frees the rock group, who escape with the dolls.
  2. Rather than be disgusted, she finds him attractive for his evil and intellect. She then says that together, the world is theirs for the taking.

Reference to Demonic Toys[edit]

In the film, there is a character by the name of Mr. Mascaro. He is a human version of the character Jack Attack, who is a character from Demonic Toys.

Reference to Head of the Family[edit]

Virgil Travis is the son of Myron Stackpool and from the yet-to-be-made Bride of the Head of the Family, Georgina.

Critical response[edit]

Will Kouf of Silver Emulsion Film Reviews states in his review: "Where do I start with this f******g movie? Blood Dolls goes the trashy route and does its best to shock and awe the viewer into liking it. It’s truly a movie that will only appeal to the most demented group of people in the audience, which realistically is probably a large subset of the people who even give a s**t about Full Moon movies. I unfortunately am not so keen on this particular brand of demented film, the “demented for the sake of being demented” variety.[2]
