Now here is a deliciously awesome early Halloween treat thanks to Rpprr666’s YouTube Channel who has uploaded a homemade 1980 horror short film entitled ‘Toys’. As I stumbled across the video this morning I couldn’t help but feel my blood freeze as I gazed on the image of Mortimer Snerd, a quite evil ventriloquist dummy from the Edgar Bergen collection that I had the misfortune of receiving one Christmas morning. For over 20 years I kept that thing locked away where it couldn’t escape, I took on the responsibility as caretaker to it’s threat…but that is a story for another time.
Why not watch the wonderful ‘Toys’ and learn what that ringmaster of darkness gets up to when not being watched by the young people in the videos.
