Question: In 1967, I saw a B&W movie on TV, about a ventriloquist who hypnotized people and drained their souls to put into his evil "dummy." The scene that scared me most was the dummy alone in a room, opening its eyes and then slowly getting up and walking away to kill someone — truly spooky. Do you know the title? — Marcia

Flickchick: I'd say Devil Doll (1964). People often compare it unfavorably to the ventriloquist's dummy segment of Dead of Night (1945), but Devil Doll is pretty damned creepy in its own right, and unbelievably sleazy to boot.
