Horror film? Not as a whole, I think.
Stuart Gordon's Dolls is a little bit less than your standard killer doll movie and more of a dark fairytale with living, homicidal dolls and Guy Rolfe before his Puppet Master roles.
As the elderly couple gives them rooms to stay in until the storm clears out, some of these people wants to take advantage to the kindness of the owners, stealing a few antiques or breaking the dolls that literally filled the place. But the owners have their own little secret: not only where they toy-makers by profession, but their dolls can come to life...and kill.

Lets also not forget the creep factor this film has; let's face it, living dolls are a little unnerving at times, but if they all look at you in unison at the same time with those glass-like smiles, or add the fact that you can see a dying elf inside a cracked one, you can't help but feel uneasy and bound to scar some young'uns especially if those little dolls acts and moves around so fluidly (all thanks to the special effects wiz Dave Allen (Honey I shrunk the Kids (1989))
