Total RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.  

Psychic/possessed children are creepy. They do creeeepy things, like stare blankly at you and speak in a monotone and maybe set your hair on fire with their minds.

But sometimes, they do something even creepier. They play video games… without using the controllers.

This scene, from the apparently terrible 1981 horror film Kiss Daddy Goodbye, is… not particularly scary. It's certainly no little Poltergeist girl touching the TV or anything. But hey, it is pretty funny. And that counts for something.

"What'll we do now?"

"There's a movie on channel six!"

"I'm tired of TV. It's creepy here without daddy."

It certainly is, creepy little girl. It certainly... is.
