Diabolical Inheritance (1994)

How bad is it? Incredibly slow, poorly made, but with some positives.
Should you see it? No, but it's almost a yes.

A shot-on-video Mexican film about a killer clown doll, played by an elderly little person. A couple inherits a house where the previous owner just happened to be into black magic. The woman, who is pregnant, is the first killed, but her baby survives. Six years later, there's new marital problems and the young boy is obsessed with the killer clown doll. There's carnival rides, a very fuzzy sex scene, a bottle stabbed into a head, a babysitter thrown off a roof. Mostly, though, there's tedium, especially in the first half. The "monster" for once is genuinely creepy.
