Playing With Dolls (2015) and Playing With Dolls: Bloodlust (2016) were really poor slashers with an interesting premise and amazing looking killer. The latter didn't even have an ending, it just rolled the credits mid fight scene.
Understandably I expected more of the same with this third (And likely final) offering.
Our killer Havoc returns, breaks free from the "Master" and sets about picking up where he left off going after a bunch of innocents in a secluded cabin.
I get the impression that the creators had a bigger budget to play with, either that or they'd gone to film school and mastered the art.
Havoc is a surprisingly good slasher flick and one I'd actually recommend to fans of the genre. I would perhaps suggest they skip straight to it and dismiss the first two.
Richard Tyson does not return which I found strange, maybe the budget was higher because they didn't need to pay for his star power? Either way I was impressed. Great kills, looks solid and the execution is impressive. I'd like to see the franchise continue if they maintain this quality.
Killer still looks awesome
Story is vastly improved
Kills are great, much better than before
Nicole Stark is a decent lead
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
A chainsaw to the balls looks fairly uncomfortable
Playing with Dolls Havoc: A remarkable improvement
