Short Night of Glass Dolls (2002) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
“Short Night Of Glass Dolls” is a great
The plot is very interesting with
a 1970’s pop-culture idea of
individual freedom which is being
suppressed by a secretive conspiracy
of cold-war, communist fascists in
Chechoslavakia who use some sort
of occult sex-magic religion as their
underlying means of control.
It seems that young woman are being
kidnapped to tap into their sexual power
which is required by those in control
of the civil government and other
aspects of culture such as the arts.
The story is delivered as the memories
of a man who is apparently dead, but
remains somehow alive and conscious,
a zombie in the voodoo sense, made so
by the above mentioned cult,
which is another mystery not explained
until the end.
His girlfriend is missing and he
must find her.
The search leads him to the discovery
of the cult.
If you like mysteries with lots of
culture and politics,
I’m sure this one will do.
Great cinematography, music (Morricone)
The ending pays off if you stay
with the slowly paced film.
There are excellent moments and
interesting characters throughout.
It is a very influential film as
it predates other popular
films with similar themes that
were loved by many whom I’m sure
never saw nor heard of this film.
