  • A zany entry into the sentient murder toy genre, Benny Loves You is an enjoyably macabre and clever horror-comedy that will have audiences rooting for its loveable villain.

    Benny Loves You is not good. It's simple, stupid, full of grisly gore, and ludicrous gags. Which is to say, it's a pretty good Midnight Movie watch, the kind of thing best appreciated when you're burned out, buzzed, or flat-out high.

    Whether it be actual toys or movies about them coming to life and killing people, they don't make 'em like they used to.

    Imagining for a second that Benny Loves You had been the first of its kind, it would still be a humorless slog.

    A stuffed toy killing people is pretty funny initially, and Holt's screenplay is generally content to coast on that surface idea. There are only so many times the sight of Benny wielding a weapon is entertaining.

    A wickedly funny horror comedy that also has something to say to those of us who maybe aren't so keen on the idea of growing up anytime soon.

    The final act payoff not only pulls the story together but recalls every detail, tugging on each dangling plot thread up until the final frame as an act of sheer will... in a good way.

    While Benny Loves You isn't groundbreaking in the subgenre, it's compelling. The film is cult following material thanks to its lovable antagonist.

    When Benny Loves You is hitting on all cylinders it's an absolute riot, the janky animation/puppeteering of the titular doll is too ridiculous not to be endearing.
