I was wondering if there were any traumafessions yet about MAKING CONTACT (a.k.a. JOEY)?
There was just something about that dusty dummy opening its eyes that disturbed me when I saw it as a kid. I remember when I was 13, my parents had my grandparents’ tapes after their house was burned down. We were watching one of the movies, I didn’t know what it was, and it ended up being this movie. I forgot all about it until that scene when the dummy comes to life. At that point I jumped out of my skin.
(AUNT JOHN SEZ: The offending dummy comes in around the 5:35 mark. Also, who’s JOEY‘s interior designer? I want those RETURN OF THE JEDI sheets!)
Then there was this ending which was freaky:
I’ve been having dreams about a giant head, and I think this may have something to do with it. It always disturbed me when the dummy burnt to death at the end too.
