About Worry Dolls

The Guatemalan Indians teach their children an old story. If you have worries, you share them with your Worry Dolls at bedtime. You put the dolls in a box and come dawn, the worries have been taken away…In the aftermath of the hunt for notorious serial killer, Henry Leonard Bale, a peaceful town erupts in a chain of random, brutal murders. What Detective Matt Williams discovers is as unbelievable as it is undeniable – These killings all stem from an ancient set of Worry Dolls that was gifted to Bale when he was a boy. Now, with his young daughter’s life hanging in the balance, Matt is pitted against the clock to find the dolls and break their curse.

WORRY DOLLS is bloody, violent and fast-paced fun! Director Padraig Reynolds (RITES OF SPRING) mixes a thrilling story with gory kills to create a scary, unsettling atmosphere that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last minute.
