At The Movies:

Weird Wednesday presents: Toys are Not For Children (1972). This sick, twisted and unhealthy obsession with toys leaves a woman without home, husband and normal life. Spiraling out of control landing her as a high priced NYC hooker. The ending is so shattering that it may leave you traumatized and stunned. Leave your toys at home and proceed with caution.
