Ventriloquist Dummy

“You’re watching a ventriloquist named Jerry Etherson, a voice-thrower par excellence. His alter ego, sitting atop his lap, is a brash stick of kindling with the sobriquet ‘Willie.’ In a moment, Mr. Etherson and his knotty-pine partner will be booked in one of the out-of-the-way bistros, that small, dark, intimate place known as the Twilight Zone.”

“The Dummy” Twilight Zone episode goes like this: Ventriloquist Jerry Etherson is convinced that his ventriloquist dummy, Willie, is alive and evil. He locks Willie in a trunk and makes plans for a new act with a new dummy, but he didn’t clear those plans with Willie first. Not gonna lie… this episode creeped me out, more so than modern-day creepy doll horror. Go figure…
