Pinocchio's Revenge (1996)

After her client is sentenced to death for the murder of his son and several other children, defense attorney Jennifer Garrick returns home to find that a key piece of evidence, has found its way in to her possession. Her daughter immediately becomes attached to the hand-carved wooden puppet of Pinocchio, but it isn't long before mysterious accidents begin to plague Jennifer and her daughter, Zoe, as well! PINOCCHIO'S REVENGE would be another disposable piece of Slasher garbage if it weren't for the ongoing sense of mystery behind the murders. Writer and director Kevin Tenney deliberately keeps the killer concealed until the final moments of the film, and even then, we are still left to wonder whether Pinocchio has truly come to life, or whether some evil spirit has possessed poor Zoe. That being said, the acting is simply atrocious, and the production lacks any sense of style, whatsoever. At least the Pinocchio puppet is mildly creepy in and of itself, but the murders are dull and uninspired. PINOCCHIO'S REVENGE is better left to Horror fans with an acute sense of Pediophobia, because CHILD'S PLAY this certainly is not.

Rating: 5/10.
