Very, very creepy – the story of Corky Withers, a successful but weak-minded ventriloquist who tumbles into insanity and projects his madness onto Fats, his vicious side-kick dummy. Initially, Corky tries to master his inner demons by returning to his home town. He leaves behind an unhappy agent who has designs on his success, and he returns to a fond welcome from Peggy Anne, a childhood sweeth... read more

"31/7/17 Anthony Hopkins is superb as the deranged magician who finds his act improved by having a ventriloquist dummy called Fats, who slowly starts to control the man. Richard Attenborough's tense thriller from William Goldman's script is brimming with character detail but the film belongs to Hopkins, who learnt how to throw his voice for the part. Creepy as hell and still as affecting. "

Film Journal - June 2016 (32 movies items)

"Kinda feels like a mix between an EC comics horror/suspense story and a romantic drama, and it actually goes really well together. Really well-made and acted superbly, making the somewhat silly premise really believable and a lot of scenes incredibly intense. It really reminded me of the Canadian horror film "Pin" (1988), which I watched just a couple of days earlier. This one was less uncomfortable than that one, but both left me feeling horrible."
