If you’ve ever had a fear of being killed by a bunch of little toy soldiers, I would leave the post now.  Ok – you’ve been warned.  And the reason I’m warning you is because on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I’m highlighting a death scene that involves psychotic little toy soldiers from Stuart Gordon’s 1987 amazing little horror film, Dolls.

Not much needs to be set up for this clip, other than knowing that a punk rock girl goes snooping around where she shouldn’t, and finds her eyeless friend (an iconic image that was incorporated on the original VHS cover) and a bunch of creepy-ass dolls.  After she destroys a good majority of them, revealing their little skull faces under the porcelain – she encounters the toy soldiers.  Don’t let their drum taps and harmless bugle fool you…..they’re pissed off.
