YMMV: Devil Doll

The movie

  • Designated Hero: Mark English, whose major achievement is getting Marianne into danger to satisfy his obsessive curiosity.
  • Squick: Vorelli's back fetish.
  • The Woobie: Hugo, and to an extent Magda the Lovely Assistant.
  • What an Idiot: So you have vast and fearsome powers over the human mind. You're capable of hypnotizing people to do your will with a mere glance, forcing them to live their darkest nightmares, re-writing their personalities, or even taking their very souls from their bodies - and you use these powers to perform in a stage show? One could argue that Vorelli gets off on being a Devil in Plain Sight and that it's not about material gain, except that the entire movie is about him using his power to get his hands on Marianne's money.
    • English's obsession with Vorelli actually put his girlfriend in danger, and honestly gift-wrapped her for the madman's devious plan.
