Storyline

Thirteen-year-old Jesse is a typical teenager who hates his teacher, Mrs. Fink. While visiting a vintage clothing shop, Jesse sees a doll that looks exactly like his dreaded teacher, and he convinces the shopkeeper to sell it to him. When Jesse accidentally pierces the doll's arm with a sewing needle, he is shocked to find Mrs. Fink with her arm in a sling the next day and gets spooked when a spot on the doll's face appears, exactly where Mrs. Fink has a mole. Jesse's worst fears are confirmed when the doll crawls out of his backpack and speaks to him. He throws the doll away, but it turns up in his room again. Jesse is desperate for help. Geneva's friend Sol who is knowledgeable about voodoo, determines that the doll is using Mrs. Fink's vitality to keep itself alive. Geneva and the boys plan to cast a spell to send the doll back to where it came from. Geneva warns Jesse that he must have pure intent for the spell to work, since the doll is nourished by negative energy. As a result, ...

Great!!!!!! Stupid looking cover though!
10 December 2005 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

stars: Shelly Duvall and Margot Kidder.

This is so good. It's a kids horror movie about a doll that a kid buys that bears a small resemblance to his teacher. Soon it starts looking more and more like her, and when the doll falls, the teacher falls, like voodoo. The doll is really funny and the doll and teacher are played and voiced by Shelly Duvall. It seems like they were trying to imitate Tales from the Crypt, because it starts off in a school. The bell rings and the kids go to their classes and a bandaged up Grim Reaper comes down the halls in to a strange room and tells the tale. This was so cool, and even the ending was fresh. I highly recommend it! my rating-B plus. 87 mins. PG for some blood and mild language.
