Storyline

The elderly owner of a china shop leaves for the night, and the various figurines and decorated mugs come to life. A demonic figure captures an upper-class lady and does battle with her lord, damaging much of the shop. But the demon proves to have a glass jaw and, literally, a yellow streak, and the happy couple is soon reunited. No dialogue, but some signs are in English, particularly the final punch-line. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Like a pre-Toy Story adventure.
12 June 2018 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is like a pre-Toy Story adventure, where various figurines and mugs come to life in a China stop after the owner leaves. Some excitement and intriguing moments when a demonic figure captures an upper-class lady and then does battle with her lord.

A clever and imaginative story here, with all the shattering and clanging of dishes.
