Acclaimed director Richard Attenborough helms this unconventional horror-thriller that reveals Anthony Hopkins's penchant for creepiness years before his Oscar-winning turn as Dr. Hannibal Lecter. After bombing in his first solo performance, a magician's assistant (Hopkins) holes up with a ventriloquist's dummy named Fats and eventually hones his act into something spectacular. But when Fats starts talking back, his master's at his mercy.
