This movie trailer scared the hell out of me as a kid. I literally had to sleep with my parents for months.
Any film that has a guy who uses a dummy as his surrogate personality is going to mess with you big time! Dummys are creepy no matter what…This fillm scared me too! Good to know I’m not the only one…Cheers-Joey (MonsterGirl)
LOL at least your parents let you? Mine told me to go back to my room and go back to bed but that wasn’t for this movie though that was Alien and Dawn of the Dead…LOL
