1989 / d. Mary Lambert
Who hasn’t lost a pet or a loved one and wouldn’t doanything to bring them back? Another simple life truth askewed delightfully into freaky charm and horror. The cast here is small but memorable — Dale Midkiff as the desperate father and Fred Gwynne as the wise old neighbor who meets a very bizarre end. And the baby, well, he’s just so dang cute and disturbing at the same time! This is another one that might be too disturbing and confusing for super young ones.
