I remember this as one of the scariest movies I have ever seen.
13 July 2004 | by (Nashville TN) – See all my reviews

I seem to remember that this movie was an hour-long British-made TV special and I haven't seen it listed anywhere since it was shown in 1972. The way I remember it is that a woman who runs a doll hospital receives a pair of dolls (a boy doll & a girl doll) from an unknown source and she is frightened by them. This was one of the scariest premises I have ever seen in a movie, and I would like to see it again to see if it is still as scary to me now as it was then, when I was 12 yrs old. After seeing it I put my dolls away and never played with them again. I think in retrospect it is probably too much for a child to watch. I have never found another person who remembers this movie.
