Richard Attenborough
USA, 1978


I was 12 or 13 when I saw this at my friend Mike's house - they were heathens who let us kids watch R-rated movies (unsupervised) on HBO - and it scared the fuck out of me. As much as I loved puppets as a kid, ventriloquist dolls were my version of the clown phobia. I'm not afraid of them anymore, but when I see them in thrift stores or wherever I'm still a little creeped.

Also, this is the film Richard Attenborough directed between A BRIDGE TOO FAR and GANDHI.
