Did some clumsy oaf in the film lab misspell the title Mannikin? No, the misspelling was a deliberate device of author Robert (Psycho) Bloch, calculated to unsettle the audience from the start. Ronee Blakely of Nashville fame and Keir Dullea star in this terrifying mood piece. She's a singer, he's a mysterious stranger; her dreams of success on her own terms are corrupted when she's possessed by a demonic spirit. Mannikin runs a scant 28 minutes, making full and frightening use of every one of those minutes
