Description

Not to be confused with the later British pic of the same title (dealing with a soul swapping ventriloquist), this sci-fi/fantasy effort gives us another somewhat mad scientist who discovers a way to shrink human beings to around six inches in height. A disgruntled colleague uses the process to create miniature killers whom are taken into potential victims' homes disguised as dolls, so that Dis. Col. can wreak his revenge. Technically quite well done for the time, this slightly overrated film suffers from Lionel Barrymore's completely unconvincing sessions in drag (during which he portrays the "kindly old lady" who sells the "dolls" to his/her targets). Not bad, but not great, either.
