This 1936 film served as part of the inspiration for the Evil Toy Maker. Unlike my camp version, the film is quite engaging. The characters have motivation for all they do including Lionel Barrymore dressed in drag as the old toy lady.
The Devil Doll is a Tod Browning classic. Browning is best known for the Bela Lugosi “Dracula” and his notorious and brilliant “Freaks”.
This video is very creepy. Turn down the lights.
