100 years later the Samurai doll was discovered by Guy, who is a Toy collector. But this discovery has awaken the very pissed off spirit of Sophia who makes plans on revenge with the now moving dolls from the graveyard and she starts out aiming at the two bullies that decided to crash his sister DeeDee's party.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, let's start with they did wrong in this movie. 1, it's too short at around 1 hour and 11 minutes. I think more could have been done with the neighbors or something like that. 2, I'm not a fan of the bully character, I think he should have stomped a few feet and locked himself in a room and called the cops and 3, the climax falls a little flat, without giving it away. That's what he did wrong, what he did right. I love the new doll monster characters, the Guy character reminds me of me in some ways. The effects are great, it's good to see Charles Band back in the director's chair where he belongs. The story works for the most part, just short. All and all 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I couldn't agree more. This was good and bad at the same time. I wanted to climb in the movie and beat the crap out of those bullies. But I couldn't so I restrained myself. But a pretty cool movie and a challenge for the actor that played Guy, a boy with the spirit of a girl inside him. Anyway I too give it...7 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ COOL NEW TOY MONSTERS (Four new Toys to add to the stories.)
+ ACTING (The acting was impressive.)
+ EFFECTS (The gore effects were well done.)
+ CAST (A cast of young stars that are bound to go places.)
+ WAITING FOR SECOND MOVIE (I'm waiting for Doll Graveyard 2)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- SHORT (At around 71 minutes, I think they could have done more with the story.)
- BULLIES (What's with the bullies?)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan of Charles Band or of killer Toy movies, then this isn't for you.)
