Joey, also known as Making Contact, is a 1985 West German/American fantasy film from Centropolis Film Productions (now Centropolis Entertainment). The film was co-written and directed by Roland Emmerich. The plot concerns a boy (Joshua Morell) who loses his father, but makes contact with what he believes is his deceased parent via a small phone and is terrorized by a demonic ventriloquist dummy named Fletcher who is possessed by a demon and summons demons to threaten his friends as only the boy must go into the spirit world to destroy this evil in a battle of good vs. evil. The boy develops the power of telekinesis, which soon gets out of hand.

Synopsis

À 9 ans, Joey vient de perdre son père. Mais une nuit, il réalise qu'il est en mesure d'entrer en contact avec lui par l'intermédiaire d'un de ses jouets, un petit téléphone rouge. Peu après, il se découvre des pouvoirs télékynétiques latents, et peut déplacer les objets à distance. Mais très vite, le rêve se transforme en cauchemar lorsque Joey découvre une étrange marionnette dans une demeure abandonnée voisine. Cette poupée de ventriloque est en effet habitée par un puissant démon, qui compte bien se servir des pouvoirs naissants de l'enfant pour son propre compte. Joey va-t-il accepter de faire usage de son pouvoir ? Et surtout, son défunt père peut-il l'aider ?

The year is 1997, and World Peace seems to have come, with most classic weapons of mass destruction having been abandoned. However, orbiting the Earth there is the European/American space station FLORIDA ARKLAB, capable of controlling the weather at any location on the planet underneath. A civil project by nature, it might be abused as an offensive weapon, since it could deliver devastation to any potential adversary simply by creating natural disasters such as storms and floods. No wonder the space station soon becomes the central point in rising political tensions between East and West, next stop World War 3 (as indicated by the tagline "The end of our future has already begun"). We follow the main protagonist Billy Hayes, an astronaut aboard the station, as he wades through a plot of secrecy and sabotage trying to tell friend from foe in the process.
