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

(OK) Attenborough is so effective here playing in the edge of psycological crime thriller and fantasy horror maniac film with a proto Chucky model. Hopkins ans wonderful magret and even frank Lauter, improves everything. Burgess Meredith is excellent..

"21-10-09 TUBI/REWATCH OLDIES-STILL GOODIES Always a joy to see a young Anthony Hopkins as the lead. And more so, now that I know what an extraordinary actor he became. He has such a legacy in horror. And the dummy. That big head and huge eyes that were lifeless yet alive. When he is sitting on the couch while they are making love and the harmonica...you know things are getting ready to go to hell in a handbasket. And it does. It was just creepy as all get out when they were dressed in the sam"

"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."
