Devil's Gift, The (1984)
An old widow tries to contact her departed husband with a Ouija board but fails and mistakenly summons an unwilling demon that comes to inhabit an antique wind-up monkey. The demon within the toy quickly orchestrates the demise of old women and destroys her house.
Years later, an 8-year old boy receives an antique toy monkey for his birthday. Strange things begin to happen, but are ignored until the boy has a close brush with death. Only then does his father realize the intensity of the evil powers that are lurking around. He must destroy the toy monkey before the powers of evil overtake him and his family.
This film of supernatural suspense is strikingly similar to Stephen King's short story "The Monkey", and supposedly lead to some legal action because of it. Also features a clever animated opening sequence.
