MANNIKINS OF HORROR is a worthy episode of the MONSTERS TV show as it's an adaptation of the Robert Bloch short story. This was previously filmed as part of the Amicus anthology film ASYLUM back in 1972, and the earlier version was clearly the superior one, but this is nonetheless a decent stab at the same story.
The storyline involves a crazed mad doctor type who's been creating lifelike mannequins which he then sends off to do various evil acts, namely murder people who stand against him. The whole episode is conceived as a special effects showcase which highlights some brief but effective stop motion work, alongside a handful of enjoyably grisly moments. South African actress Glynis Barber (DEMPSEY AND MAKEPEACE) stars.
