After young Joey's father dies, he starts to make his various toys come to life, including his friend, R2D2. He also begins to whom he believes to be his dead father via his red toy telephone. Turns out not to be his father, but an evil ventriloquist dummy (and really is there any other kind?). The dummy soon makes little Joey's life a nightmare. Not that his life was all roses before, mind you. He's the type of kid to be heavily bullied. This movie scared the poo out of me as a kid and I could see it still doing so if I were still a kid. But like "the Boogens", it hasn't aged well in the least. Who the hell would show this film to a little kid anyway?? now THAT'S just bad parenting right there.
My Grade: D
2-disc DVD Extras: both 79 & 98 minute versions of the film; and 2 theatrical Trailers for the American version, 1 for the German one
