The Electric Grandmother
This movie scarred many of us in elementary school in the mid 80s. VHS was newish and our library didn't have a lot of tapes so that meant we got to "enjoy" this film at least 3 times a year whenever our teachers wanted a break. It's about 3 kids traumatized by their mother's death (great 3rd grade topic BTW) and their father's attempt to help by ordering up an electric replacement family member, instead of, you know, psychotherapy. Seriously, this is one weird movie. She can dispense milk from her finger and has to be plugged in at night to give you an idea. The whole thing is based on a Ray Bradbury short story called "I Sing the Body Electric." Most of the film is on YouTube if you'd like to check it out.
Please Mike, Bill and Kevin: riff this movie! I and countless others subjected to this film need to get the psychological trauma it caused out in the open so that the healing can begin.

Like that same episode of "The Twilight Zone" that's, like 100000% more messed up? Count me in!
