Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: I think 10 yo Joshua Morell as 9 yo Joey (on left) and an overweighted boy, I think Sean Johnson as Bobby in blue bibs, obviously a bit older (pictured).

Thanks for this suggestion. I even considered buying it many years ago, because of the DVD cover, but I bought D.A.R.Y.L. instead. Not to be confused with the US film Joey (1986) released in 1/1986, filmed in 1985 and often also claimed as Joey (1985). Every time I saw Joey (1985) in the TV magazine I thought that’s it, but it was always the 86 film. Even for research on YouTube I first saw the wrong film. The 86 film is also quite good, I think starring a teen girl in bibs (or biblike dress), entry coming next. There’s also a peeing scene of a boy in underwear (tighty whities).

But back to this 85 film aka “Making Contact”, rated PG. I think I have seen it in the 80s and checked it only at high speed recently. I only noticed some few scenes in bibs, mainly in dim light. So nothing special. A girl with pigtails which were flying up (see trailer) but not in bibs.

The movie itself and the plot is quite interesting and spooky, but there are a lot of similar and better horror and supernatural films and series and the like.

I have to check this again at slow speed and hope for a soon broadcasting. I wonder why this hadn’t been aired for a long time.

Rating 4-5 for now due to few bibs scenes.

Update: I now have checked it completetly but at high speed. Few scenes. I only noticed this one brief pictured scene of the slim boy and one long scene with the overweighted boy at the end. His bibs are tight.

Very good movie (although the boys could be more handsome). Few good bibs scenes so rating 4 instead of 5.

Update: I found the 1st scene. Brief scene at 40 minutes. A longer scene of the fat boy at 1h10+.

Now also on my pigtails blog. Nice flying up, blonde pigtails (rating 4).
