"Jamie wouldn't kill anyone...unless Teddy told him to!" 12-year-old Jamie Benjamin is a social outcast, ignored by his parents and ridiculed by everyone else. His only friend is his evil-minded stuffed toy, Teddy. When Jamie discovers a group of primitive humanoids trapped in a pit in the woods near his house, it isn't long before he finds a way to get back at his tormentors. This warped little gem could only have been made in the Eighties. No filmmaker today would be able to get away with portraying a kid who behaves the way this one does!
