Films: Pinocchio's Revenge
Type: Unknown, possibly Natural or Mystical or even both
Location: Civilized Area/Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of an average human child.
Summary: You know those movies where a person (often rightly) blames murders on an unassuming object? This is one of those. It is also probably not. It's up to you.
History: The mentally imbalanced young daughter of an attorney, Zoe Garrick had recently taken a liking to a wooden Pinocchio puppet her mom brought home as evidence for her case. As Zoe grows more dependent on her new "friend", people that she knows start dying mysteriously, with her blaming Pinocchio on it all. And she could be right...
Notable Kills: A fire poker is Pinocchio's last murder tool.
Final Fate: Zoe's mother eventually overpowers Pinocchio, and throws him at a glass table. But wait! Now Zoe is in Pinocchio's place. Was Pinocchio ever alive? Who knows. Either way, Zoe gets committed.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-Dolls like this can be creepy, yes, but Pinocchio's childish voice and movements make it a little hard to take him seriously. If anything, Zoe being responsible for the deaths sounds like a worse prospect.
Trivia: -Pinocchio's voice was provided by Richard "Dick" Beals, a voice actor who was best known for his role as Speedy Alka-Seltzer in those commercials.
-This film was also known as "Bad Pinocchio", "The Pinocchio Syndrome", and simply, "Pinocchio".
