Another under-appreciated horror film. Co-written and directed by Roland Emmerich, the movie puts a different twist on the "scary toys" motif of the 1980s ("Poltergiest" and "Magic"). Emmerich, who would go on to direct "Stargate," "Independence Day," and "The Patriot," uses the "evil dummy" to overcome the film's lesser moments and create an unsettling story. (The movie was originally released in the US with the title "Making Contact.")

I rented this because I remembered that I saw it as a kid and that it deeply disturbed me. And you know what? It still does. The thing is though, I'm not really sure that that's what it was going for. It's directed like it's some sort of whimsical Spielbergesque children's fantasy, but it really has some pretty disturbing undertones. And a scary looking evil ventriloquist dummy, which alone will automatically add a scare factor to any movie. Thanks for a lifetime of nightmares, Roland Emmerich, You sick bastard!

AAHHHHHH...this movie haunted me as a kid...Here are a few things I remember:

1-a cheeseburger monster is about to eat a chunky kid.
2-His r2d2-like toy is actually alive!
3-the dummy and the kid fight using magic powers from the closet!!!

My #1 childhood trauma film. This movie really really scared me. I finally found a copy years later, and it is a mess of a film, extremely derivative, and ridiculous. The first third is actually effective and creepy. The last 10 minutes are near unwatchable.

Scared the crap out of me when I seen it in a theatre as a child. Watched it when I got older and thought it was kind of silly but still can't deal with dummy's.
