The Curse of Robert the Doll: Another frustrating mess

Robert The Doll (2015) was a weak messy British horror so I was hugely surprised to see it spawn a sequel. Wait did I say sequel? I meant sequels, because at time of writing there are no less than four Robert movies.

Now for those of you unfamiliar Robert is based upon a real doll, a doll that inspired the existence of Childs Plays own Chucky. But make no mistake these movies are not on the same level, not even remotely.

What I find odd is that they don't use the real Roberts appearance because that is considerably scarier. Seriously, it's like a cabbage patch doll imitating leather face!

Well Robert The Doll is fresh off his last killing spree and is now an exhibit in a museum. It's not l.ong until he returns to his old ways and it comes down to the buildings security guards and newly recruited cleaner to save the day.

To it's credit it does remain consistent and even includes a cast member from the original. Sadly this doesn't make up for everything else being beyond awful.

The Good:

Meh

The Bad:

Pretty much everything

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I still struggle to find a doll even remotely feasible

I need alcohol if I'm going to weather the next two films

Nice bridge between Robert and The Toymaker

This Robert sequel is not as bad as some ratings claim, The story is well tied as a nice follow up to the first movie. There's no huge story here because it's like a bridge between part 1 and 3, also it's mainly based on the true legend of Robert the doll in the museum. Yet the film is enjoyable to watch and fast based, also the ending was very cool and unexpected.

Slightly better than the first movie... which isn't saying much

A young woman takes a job on the night shift in a small curio museum. When her coworkers' bodies begin piling up, the prime suspect is one of the displays, a hideous doll which is purported to be possessed.

Very loosely based on a real story (relocated from early 20th century Florida to contemporary Britain), the original "Robert" was a tedious movie, paced at the speed of evolution, with characters who behaved idiotically and cheaper effects than the worst of the Charles Band killer-doll flicks. This time around, the pace is a little better (though it still takes far too long to get going), the characters are slightly more likable (a returning cast member steps up their game and the rest of the performances are decent) and the effects are... well, about the same. Frankly, it's a case of been there, done that, seen it - and much better. But sadly, I've also seen much worse. The biggest problem with these films is that suspense isn't handled well, it's draaaaagged out to the point of boredom and the payoff generally sucks.

It's sort of a shame that this trilogy (a third film is slated to be released next year) has been so painfully mediocre, cuz it's kind of disrespectful to the real Robert, who deserves a more faithful telling of his bizarre tale. Still, this sequel's a few rungs above the original, so perhaps the third film might actually be good.
