Alienated by his strange parents, Leon finds solace in an imaginary friend, an anatomy doll from his father’s doctor office. Unfortunately, the doll begins to take over Leon’s life, and as a result his sister’s life as well.

A very well constructed horror from the 80’s, and a truly underrated movie. It reminded me a lot of “Magic” with Anthony Hopkins from the 70’s, but I liked this better. There’s a lot of possible pitfalls in the story, but it managed to steer clear of all. A steady production and one of those psychological thrillers/horrors you ought to see!
