Directed by Rodney Ascher
Why are we simultaneously attracted to and repelled by the things that scare us the most? In this special presentation, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237, THE NIGHTMARE) explores the pop culture that left dark impressions on us as children. Starting from the immortal ventriloquist dummy of MAGIC, Ascher asks real people to look back at pop-culture artifacts that traumatized them in their youth and describe the effect they had on their lives. A singular hybrid of documentary and horror, stare into the Primal Screen.
In this Shudder Original, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher explores the pop culture that left dark impressions on us as children.

I really enjoyed this.
Thought this was pretty good; definitely creepy to someone like me who was terrified of puppets and dummies when I was a kid. I hope we get more content from this guy soon.
Show about a couple of overly impressionable children who got scared of a commercial. OooOoooo
I hate dolls so damn much!
