HBO & USA Network Saturday Nightmares. http://www.FilmSchoolOnline.com - "The Dummy" is a 1982 student film picked up by HBO, TMC, and Showtime in the early days of cable TV. It received extensive play for almost ten years, more than any other short film. It was often used as a bumper for horror movies and suspense anthologies like "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," inspiring the "Child's Play" (Chucky) films. "The Dummy" was the source of nightmares for a generation of kids watching late night television in the 1980s. If you are one of them, please share it with us! Although 30 years old and extremely "low-tech" in this day of CGI/digital effects, it's still fun to watch. The film is shown here in its entirety, with permission.
