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, ...

best movie ever made
7 January 2001 | by (Detroit, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This is the best movie ever made!!!!!!!! The doll is hilarious when she says anything from, "Ouch!" to "Traitor!" to "eeeeeeeek shoulda used a ladder!!!" to "when you lie you pay." Geneva is also a great touch with her librarian Sol. They are both like hippies and say things like "snatch your soul and take control" to "nighttime-in graveyards!" to "whats up little brother!" to "that's cool" and "the place near waaater" and do things like scurry over to $14.95 jewelry or rolling over their eyes saying "real trouble." The doll smashes forks and plays cards. She has little legs that walk and says, "Ohhhh." The little sister named Annabel says things like, "don't you ever knock" "where's my milk?!?" and "oh what it walked." If you ever see this movie buy it. My friend and I are even buying the versions that are in spanish. This movie has changed my life forever. It is so funny and on a scale out of ten it is about a 157,943,474,917,323,865,345,999.99 I love this movie sooooooo much. vote for it and give it a ten!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
