Short but Insightful
31 May 2018 | by johnnyutah31See all my reviews

Not sure wether this was supposed to be a quick, one shot doc or planned as a series but I really do hope something more materializes out of this. Great story on how the teaser trailer for the 1978 film "Magic" terribly scarred a young kid. It also goes into Ventriloquism, dolls and such and it's effects on people while showing some clips from film and tv involving Ventriloquism. Really, really enjoyed it.
