This is a great suspense/horror movie. Anthony Hopkins is great in this movie and i really didn't know where this movie was going until around the middle. you have to give this one a chance to get started before you judge. No gore or special effects, a classic. I was really afraid of puppets after watching this movie when I was a kid. Highly recommended

Anthony Hopkins is really good as this shy, awkward man slowly descending into a world of madness as great success looms over the horizon. Hopkins also does the voice of the dummy, Fats, and lends his unique voice talents to create a very disturbing, eerie screen presence. The dummy is in many ways larger than life, and he steals almost every scene he is in. No supernatural puppet coming to life here, yet the character of Corky(Hopkins) gives his life to this dummy in a very unique...
