I'm searching for information on some short films ( mostly horror) that were aired between show or commercials in the Sci Fi channel during the 90s.
I remember some of them and I would like to find them. Here's a list of some of them.

1. A marionette that comes alive and chase a woman in an apartment to kill her, the woman decapitate the marionette with a baseball bat.
2. There this janitor working in a store and the mannequins talks to him trying to persuade him, at the end he is turned into mannequin.
3. A fisherman is fishing in a lake and he got fished into the lake by an apple with a line.
4. A mailman doesn't do a favor to an old man in a Bar and the mailman cant escape the area whenever he drives he end up in the same location.
5. A man build a huge mouse traps and commit suicide.
6. a woman is trying not to eat some fruits that talk to her so she sew her moth.

There were many more that aired during that time I had search everywhere and found nothing yet.

Please if any of you know anything please let me know by name or link if possible. '

Also: Thanks fpr this page is amazing to learn from rare movies.

And hey, YouTube had a link to your first film on the side of the page when I went to find the mousetrap one:

The Dummy.

Number six is actually an episode of Tales from the Darkside. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MU2X88ooLoc
It's called 'Love Hungry'.

If Im not mistaken, 2 and 3 are on youtube. Or at least they were. I can't seem to find them now.

A little more digging has found #2; it's called "Living Dolls".

Here you go.

Four down, two to go...

Number three is called "A Little Fishy." If I can find it I'll post a link.

I actually remember most of these, although I never saw #4.

That dummy one was pretty creepy. I also recall finding "Living Dolls" fairly disquieting, too, at least the final shot. Something about mannequins apparently hits a deep nerve in my psyche. I saw Tourist Trap in high school and found that scarier than I probably should have due to those dolls with the flapping mouths.

I just saw "Love Hungry" for the first time a couple of years ago and was genuinely surprised by the ending. That was quite twisted.

I'll be interested to learn about that mailman one.

"A Little Fishy" can be seen here. Not the best quality, but there it is.
