Scary Doll #ElectronicHalloween

Dolls.

Why are dolls so scary to me? They watch you. Follow you. Walk around at night. Always evil. Always!

My fear must stem from a movie I saw as a child called “Dolls.” It frightened me so bad, I literally could not sleep, not even in the day! No other film did that to me. The Chucky series, Goosebumps episodes with the ventriloquist puppet, none of these scared me as a kid. It was something about that movie, Dolls… fuel for nightmares.

I’m not the only one. Dolls of various types always freak people out. Just take that movie “Annabelle,” the prequels to “The Conjuring” horror film series. All of which feature the doll, Annabelle.

To be honest, every single scary doll in anyone’s house I know… has been thrown out, burned or buried. Thank goodness!

However, for this project, there was a doll shortage. Who knew I would need one of those hideous things one day?

I tried many antique shops. But very freaky doll they had cost a fortune! Wouldn’t that be a double smack? I buy a 200 dollar doll, and it comes to life to get me! Luckily, some local resale stores had a few options. I found this one below… not as scary as I wanted it though.
