13 Of The Creepiest Dolls Ever Made
Dolls have always been some of the most creepy objects in horror fanfiction. The most famous example of scary dolls is Chuckie from Child’s Play, in which an evil soul of a serial killer tries to kill humans in order to transfer its soul back to a human host.
Humanoid dolls usually fall directly into the ‘uncanny valley’ territory- they resemble children or toddlers enough for us to recognize various physical features, but not enough to appear distinctly human. Couple that with the fact that dolls often are portrayed as being inhabited by evil souls or demons, and you have one of the scariest phenomena that humankind has managed to create.
Traditionally, dolls are made out of porcelain- a material that can easily fracture, creating the possibility of a broken, cracked exterior that further adds to their creepiness. Dolls with buttons sewn into their head to resemble eyes, dolls with ‘human’ teeth, and dolls with creepy sinister smiles- all are commonly used in horror fanfiction to create an incredible scary situation.
Who wouldn’t be terrified by a doll that came to life and started biting your fingers off? Or a doll that had smaller, creepier dolls crawing out of its body? Check out the rest of these fantastically scary dolls- and be prepared to have some nightmares. I hope you don’t have any dolls in your home, staring at you with deep, endless eyes and threatening to steal your soul.
