In this week’s episode of Supernatural, “Mannequin 3: Reckoning,” Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are going to take on the famed Andrew McCarthy role of Jonathan Switcher.
Unfortunately, with the previous two Mannequin films using up all the world’s cursed Egyptian princesses and enchanted peasant girls, Supernatural is left with the bottom of the paranormal barrel for their mannequin inhabitant.
When a vengeful ghost goes after the men who murdered her, this paranormal entity decides to pass on the typical human possession and chooses something flashy, unique and, well, 80s. With the look of Kim Cattrall’s “Emmy” and the murderous mindset of Chucky, this ghost sets out to prove that the Mannequin’s opening theme song, “In My Wildest Dreams” by Belinda Carlisle, has a bloodier meaning.
“Mannequin 3: Reckoning” Episode Description:
