  • One of my favorites -- dark -- typical Twilight Z.

    This episode successfully sets the ominous mood. Even without the special effects they have today, the dummy is portrayed as very scary simply by repositioning him everytime the ventriloquist turns around--especially when the dummy's arm is thrown over the seat to portray a casual relaxed way. The dummy gives funny smart-alecky answers and he wants to take over. The substitute dummy was good. The ending is freakish. Excellent tortured performance by Cliff Robertson. Loved the story.
