Freaked.

“I don’t like the way it’s looking at me,” I told Tom.




“It’s a doll. It’s not watching you,” he answered.

I walked to the corner of the room. “It’s still watching me.” I went to the other corner of the room. “Still watching me. I’m traumatized.” I hid my face.

Tom rolled his eyes and lifted it from the box. “It’s a doll, Amber.”

I backed away as if it were possessed. What if it was possessed? It looked like it would be exactly the kind of doll that would be possessed.

“My grandma always gives a doll to the girl grandchildren,” Tom continued. “She collected these.”

I shuddered. I know people collect dolls. I remember watching a show awhile back about women who buy dolls that look like newborns and they treat them like children. Personally, those types of people belong in a VC Andrews novel but that’s just my opinion.

“Why are you climbing on the couch?” Tom asked. “And making a cross symbol with your fingers?”

“I swear it just winked at me.”

“The eyes don’t even shut!”

“Exactly.” I swallowed. “We should keep it in the closet. In the box. So….it doesn’t get broken.”

My real reason was so we wouldn’t get murdered in our sleep. I’m hoping it can’t jump. Tom would say that no, it can’t jump because it’s made of wax. But it’s been around awhile so it could be inhabited by a spirit. That can happen. I’ve seen shows on the SyFy channel where things like chairs and guns piss ghosts off and then they’re like, “I’m going to terrorize this family. Mwa-ha-ha!”

And plus, her hair looks red.

Red was the color of Chucky’s hair.

Remember Chucky? The satanic doll killer?

I’m sure it’s just a regular (freaky) doll.

Still, to be on the safe side, I covered the box with a blanket.

Just to, you know, suffocate it.

Just in case.

  1. I'd have been freaked out too. I once found some Hello Kitty dolls lurking in the top of the closet in my room, I still can't deal with Hello Kitty.

  2. Your post made me laugh. My daughter got a doll for Christmas one year and it did the same thing to me. It even freaked my daughter out. It ended up staying at grandmoms house :-)

  5. haha! I've always been creeped out by dolls, too. We got T one for her birthday, and I couldn't decide which was least creepy, so we went with one that looks pretty real. Which was possibly the creepiest thing to do!

  9. I'm w/ you... I'm not fond of those dolls at all... I had a friend in middle school that collected them and I spent the night at her house ONCE and she told me the scariest story of the dolls coming to life and cutting people... *shudder*

  13. YIKES! Did you hear that?! Just now. Something like labored breathing. Listen. *pause* O-oh, what if she's NOT dead?!?! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!!!

  14. LOL......so very funny I feel the same way. No dolls in this house. Maybe the shed would be a better place for her ??

  15. There was a weird clown puppet doll that used to be in our room and it just had to go - spooky.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That picture gives me the heebie jeebies. The cardboard makes it look like she's been decapitated. Which may not be a bad thing, come to think of it...

  17. Oh, that is creepy! Thanks to Chucky, I am still afraid of creepy dolls to this day.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I feel your pain...I can't take dolls either. If my daughter wants to collect something, it will be toy trucks along with her brother. Those things are not coming into my house!

  20. You have to tie a rope around the box, if she wants to get you she can just lift the lid and blanket.

  21. As a child, I had a gorgeous doll collection...all on stands. One day, I suddenly became terrified of them. So, I moved them all to my little sister's room.

    Ha Ha! True story. She cried and cried.

  22. OMG, I was totally thinking of Chucky and than as I read further you mentioned him.

    I haven't been the same since seeing those damn Chucky movies, esp the one where he takes a bride. Really? A serial killer doll who takes an evil bride.

    You're not imagining anything. Better to be on the safe side. Hide that doll...far, far away.

  23. That doll is seriously scary looking. I don't blame you one bit if the doll "accidentally" gets broken.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wouldn't put it on MY shelf, put it that way.

    ReplyDelete
  25. HAHAHA! What is it about grammas and creepy dolls??? My hubby's grandma gives our daughter these creepy dolls. The difference is they creep my hubby out just as much as they do me, so we keep them all in the closet and crack jokes about selling them on ebay.

  26. yea
    i don't like dolls either
    nor.. old portraits i TOTALLY feel like they (the people) are staring at me.. judging me!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Why do grandma's insist on these dolls?! We have one very similar, well, two dolls. They are kept in the closet, under a blanket, and blessed weekly.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is there a lock on the outside of the closet door? I'm freaked out too!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Heeeeey now! No hating on the red hair.
    But, in all honesty, that doll is possessed. Please be careful.

  30. Freaky! I received a couple of dolls like this from my grandmother when I was a child, and they weren't allowed to cross the threshold of my bedroom. My little sister, on the other hand, received regular old fun American Girl dolls. She wasn't interested in trading, either. Good thing I wasn't big into baby dolls.

  31. Whatever you do...DO NOT watch the clown doll scene from Poltergeist.

  32. I once toured the house of a women who collected antique dolls. There were dolls in every room, dolls on every table top, dolls on every bed, dolls in every corner, dolls on each step of the staircase that led to - you guessed it - MORE dolls. It was the creepiest thing I've ever seen and you have my complete understanding and sympathy.

  33. OMG dolls like that freak me out too!! So did Chucky.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ha, my grandmother collects those too and they are always creepy.

    The best is my cousin has one that we call spooky baby. We would torture my younger cousin with by putting it in her bed. Now spooky baby travels the world like that gnome in the commercials. Torturing us all in knowing that we can't escape spooky baby.

  35. It doesn't help that creepy doll's head requires its own box! Good idea with the blanket, only I'm thinking a plastic bag and dumpster would have felt better. :/

    ReplyDelete
  36. My sister collected dolls and they were CA-REEPY! I swore they were watching me too. *shudder*

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've never been a fan of those kinds of dolls either. I used to clean house for a lady who had some and I swear they watched me as I cleaned. I always RUSHED through that room!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What the hell kind of doll is that?! That is the kind of doll nightmares come from...
    I think it's even EXTRA creepy with it's head floating in a separate box...

    ..why am I reading this post before I go to bed???

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't blame you for being freaked out. I think it's looking at me too.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It does look exactly like the kind of doll that would be possessed. Creepy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. That doll needs to get out of your house, like, yesterday.

    It's staring at me thru the computer screen!!!

    I'm off to get some holy water and garlic.

  42. Dolls like that freak me out too!

  43. HILARIOUS! I used to have a similar doll as a kid, I loved it so much its hair came off...my mom gave it to me a few years ago and I was seriously disturbed by it. now it's in a garbage bag (suffocating) in the hall closet.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your hilarious! I saw that show with the lady who carries around real looking baby dolls! Definitely disturbing, though I can see why this doll is staring you down. The way the box is, it looks like she's on a guillotine.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I was so creeped out by those movies about CHUCKY...the mass murdering doll. Yours looks like a relative of his.
