Tyler Aikens's rating of the film Little Otik

Interesting little movie that could easily be labeled horror/comedy. But I couldn't get past one serious flaw in the plot; the fact that the husband realizes that his wife's obsession with the wood-boy he made is unhealthy, but for some reason doesn't have the heart to tell her any different, leading to all sorts of unnecessary problems for the couple. It also loses points for it's weak finale.
