  1. En Sangers Bøn (Philippe)'s rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    A real curiosity and original storyboard in the horror genre that transcends the usual gothic classics of that time, despite it is quite ambitious the result is rather awkward if not weak. Watchable and not a completely waste of time for fans of Browning and early time of horror cinema but dated with a few memorable moments. Convincing and expressive performance by Barrymore.

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    Another wonderfully creepy/charming picture from Tod Browning, one of the greatest masters of such concoctions. And Lionel Barrymore gives one of the greatest drag performances ever. 4.3*

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    Avant-dernier film du réalisateur et encore un inoubliable chef-d'oeuvre ! www.cinefiches.com

  5. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    Such a strange, cool little film. Browning seemed to only make movies about oddballs or people pretending to be something they arent. This and some of his films with Lon Chaney fall into the latter category. I found the special fx to be actually quite good for the time, and Barrymore attacks the role with gusto, getting the most out of each word of dialogue. 4.5 stars, great film, just not much horror here really.

  6. Aardsy's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    The original MRS. DOUBTFIRE took a weird turn.

  7. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

  8. opandadodavid's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

  9. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    Worth watching only for Barrymore's over the top cross-dresser/wrongly convicted father out for vengeance. Not very strong in the horror department but Browning does well near the end of his career.

  10. Silenzio's rating of the film The Devil-Doll

    Underrated horror classic. Barrymores performance needs to be seen to be believed
