| Overall Reaction |

Just in time for Halloween, 'Toys Of Terror' arrives on Digital. The film starts out with a family that goes away on a holiday vacation to an old, creepy house that used to be a home of a children's orphanage. The kids discover a chest full of toys that come alive and make them do naughty things. The older step-sister begins to notice odd things happening in the house and tries to stop the deadly toys.   When I first saw the trailer it reminded me of the "PUPPET MASTER" series.  I was all excited to see children's toys cause havoc with over the top violence.  Unfortunately it was very fair when it came to the blood and gore.  It had some laughs but overall it fell flat for me.   The toys though were a little freaky, especially the monkey. The film is worth the watch but don't expect much from it.
