I thought the setting, and the little soldiers were so cool!

They're quite tactical too.

I guess even the smallest flea can bite.

Anyway check it out and let me know what you think.

When your masculinity is so toxic, even your toy soldiers come alive.

Fine, we got tiny little bullets, so let's all take tactical cover under the couch.

Annoying and deadly they may be, but you got to give them this - they never waver from their mission.

And they actually care for each other - as far as that is militaristically possible.

Uh -oh, the little Indians and cavalry in my cupboard are rattling.
Not fair! If you let them out, we want to come out too.

Sorry sweeties, not tonight.

Of course, you do realize they made little "fox-holes" all over the carpet.
The soldiers, the mission and the commode.

Flip, tell me next time and I'll leave you a paper plate.

The note: "Surrender".

What are the terms and conditions? That is pretty skeletal.

Imagine he accepted.

Hey fellas let's go for a bath, and don't forget to wash behind your ears.
We''ll do it for you!

I got two bottles of wine ... oh what the heck, let's all get drunk.

As a huge SK fan, I can't believe I've never heard of this before. Got 2 mins in and I've ranged from: Ok this seems like an episode of The Outer Limits, is this a fan rip-off of Small Soldiers, to is this really a SK story? Turns out it is.

Wiki

I'm going to watch the rest because I love the idea behind it and kind of feel it's my duty as a King fan to find out what it's about. Thank you halfoldman for bringing it to my attention and for FREE!


ETA: It might just be my PC, but ~10 min in and the audio doesn't sync with the video. Started off fine and then thought maybe it was bad encoding and would be fixed next scene, but seems like maybe not,

Not a bad adaptation from Stephen King's first book of short stories 'Night Shift'. One of my favorites as a kid too, they stayed pretty much true to the source material, except the ending and the size of the soldiers which were smaller like the bags you got at the drugstore. In the book, he is blasted off the balcony and plunges 60 floors with a fist size hole in his back, as the flyer floats down now includes thermal nuclear missile!!
