It was a short film called The Contraption, most remembered on USA's Saturday Nightmares. See also "Living Dolls" and "The Dummy", both on YouTube.
YES!! THANK YOU ROCKMONSTER THIS WAS IT!!! I just watched it on youtube and the trap seems smaller then I remember but this was definitely it!!
However, I thought it kind of creepy at the end when the credits were displayed....the suicide was played by a guy that has the same FULL-NAME (first and last) AS MY DEAD GRAND-FATHER!! TOO WEIRD!!!
ANYWAYS, THANKS AGAIN MAN!! I guess this thread can be moved to the "solved" category.
