  • 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.

    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.

    The combination of [Benny's] childlike glee with his violent tendencies is a consistent source of absurdist humor.

    Brimming with blood, gore, and deadpan wit (with visible references to other slasher films), Benny Loves You won't be for everyone but it is admirably outrageous.
