Although deliberately created to replicate the dummy episode from DEAD OF NIGHT, this black-and-white English production works tolerably well as a crude rip-off, thanks to a creepy dummy and creepier performance from Haliday as The Great Vorelli.

"What Is the strange, terrifying evil secret of the dummy... and why is it locked in a cage every night? Is it flesh or wood? Man or monster? Alive or dead? The Devil Doll. It walks. It talks. It kills. Strange! Terrifying! Evil!" -tagline

No doubt in my mind, that who ever wrote Chuckie, got his idea from this movie. Hugo was long before chuck was a wet spot in the writers eye. A Great B&W Britishuspense/horror film.
