Joey (aka Making Contact) is a 1985 West German science fiction/horror film from Centropolis Film Productions. The film was co-written and directed by Roland Emmerich. The plot concerns a boy (Joshua Morell) who loses his father, but makes contact with what he believes is his deceased parent via a small phone.[1] The boy develops the power of telekinesis, which soon gets out of hand.[2]
