Overview
WHAT iS THE STRANGE, TERRiFYiNG EViL SECRET OF THE DUMMY...

and why is it locked in a cage every night?


Tense and terrifying with an unforgettable twist ending, this cult horror classic from producer Richard Gordon has chilled audiences for decades. A gem of psychological suspense and supernatural thrills, it features great performances from William Sylvester (Gorgo, 2001: A Space Odyssey), Bryant Halliday (The Projected Man and The Curse of Simba) and Yvonne Romain (Curse of the Werewolf, Circus of Horrors).

Reporter Mark English has been assigned to write a story on The Great Vorelli, a dark, hypnotist and ventriloquist whose popular act includes a sarcastic talking, walking, dummy called Hugo.

When English convinces his girlfriend, Marianne, to volunteer to join the entertainer on stage, Vorelli develops his own interest in the beautiful, young woman who just happens to be the heiress to a fortune. But as English continues his investigation, he is shocked to discover the sinister origins of the dummy and soon has reason to fear for the lives of those around this sadistic showman...
