The Rocking Horse
15 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Martin Sheen & Kim Darby play a happily married couple named Frank & Cindy whose lives are turned upside down when Frank brings home an old box he found on a construction site he was working on. The box has no latch, but he gets it open only to find inside a child's rocking horse with a smashed mirror inside. Thinking it some strange joke, he puts it aside, but Cindy then starts having awful nightmares involving the rocking horse stalking her, and indeed it does seem to be getting bigger, and have a dark connection to her childhood... Potentially ludicrous tale actually works thanks to good acting, a clever script and inventive direction. Far-fetched of course, but memorable.
