Zombies are the middle children of the otherworldly family. Vampires are the oldest brother who gets to have a room in the attic, all tripped out with a disco ball and shag carpet. Werewolves are the youngest, the babies, always getting pinched and told they're cute. With all that attention stolen away from the middle child zombie, no wonder she shuffles off grumbling, "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha."

The films that come out of the Full Moon Entertainment vault may not be cinematic masterpieces but they are some of the most fun and entertaining films which is exactly what comes in Demonic Toys 2: Personal Demons (2010).  Coming off of the better than expected original this film has a lot to live up to.  Fortunately, for the majority of Full Moon sequels they don’t have to be as good if not better than the original, they just need to be entertaining. 

In this film two of the demonic toys (Baby Oopsie Daisy and Jack in the Box) find their way in the hands of an antiques collector who takes the dolls into a castle in which a cursed doll resides (and which the collector wants to add to his collection).  This cursed doll comes to life and instills some of its own life essence into the demonic dolls and then all hell breaks loose as the demonic toys try to teach their new friend the art of torture and death by killing everyone they come into contact with.  What’s a little fun between demonically possessed dolls especially in a Full Moon film?

Now the film has nothing new in the way of story as written & directed by William Butler but it is quite full and has plenty of kills to entertain horror fans.  Most of the fun, as in all the Demonic Toys films, comes from the toys themselves especially Baby Oopsie Daisy who is given the best one-liners (as in all the various Demonic Toys films and spin-offs).  Next to the Puppet Master series this franchise is the most entertaining in terms of having the most outrageous story and fun from killer dolls.

People not familiar with the Full Moon films may not find the humor and joy in this film (or any other one in their vault) but it has enough going for it to keep audiences amused…at least for a little while.
