DOLLS concerns a struggling children’s book author and his rebellious teenage daughter who
move into a house they’ve inherited and find mysterious dolls in the attic. The father and
daughter soon learn that the dolls have a sinister — and deadly – past. The screenplay is by Justin
Hawkins & Josh Hawkins, with Jeff Miller (OUIJA HOUSE, THE TOYBOX) also contributing
to the story.
Wallace plays a neighbor who knows about the dolls and their ties to the house. The movie also
stars frequent Miller collaborator Tom Downey (AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL
BUNYAN), as well as newcomer Trinity Simpson, Bret Green (CBS’s THE INSPECTORS),
Elise Muller (BAGHEAD), Melinda deKay, and Robert R. Ryel.
Miller (who had seven features released in 2018, including the recent DEATH KISS) is
producing with Robert Michael Ryan (NECROSIS). Carvin and Ryan previously directed and
produced the “Dark Corners” horror anthology series. Josh Hawkins and Ben Demaree are Co-
Producers on DOLLS, with Demaree also serving as Director of Photography. Veronica Rodarte
is handling the bulk of the makeup FX. Ken Stachnik is Gaffer. Korey Rowe is editing.
“It’s my second film in just over a year with Dee, and she truly is an American treasure,” says
Miller. “The work she did in the ‘80s continues to be seen as classics. I’m so glad we could
bring her aboard my friend Cuyle Carvin’s first feature.”
DOLLS should be finished in early 2019. Uncork’d Entertainment is handling worldwide
