Like clowns these once popular children’s favorites have for many become the creatures of nightmares. Movies based around the terrifying killing sprees of haunted killer dolls are commonplace, and the internet is full of tales of those who have experienced strange occurrences at the hands of these strange and unusual scary dolls.
‘Hi, I'm Chucky. Wanna play?’
As children most of us would have had a favourite childhood companion in the form of a doll, teddy bear or other toy, a friend by day-light and a protector by night to defend us against the monsters under the bed, not everyone was as lucky.

Some people believe that dolls can act as a vessel or ‘home’ for lost souls, angry spirits with nowhere to go and especially the spirits of children who were once associated with the doll may seek it out after death and possess it, preferring to remain in our world in whatever form is available rather than move on into the next.
These scary dolls are not necessarily evil or monsters, but frustration on their part at being unable to interact with the living in ways they previously enjoyed can easily lead to the playing of pranks or angry and violent outbursts. Dolls have often been used in magic and witchcraft due to their replicated human form, with dead eyes they watch us, and observe us, and occasionally these scary dolls, like the rest of us, just want to play.

Imagine waking up from a dream to find the life-less eyes of Adam the scary doll staring into yours as his little hands do their best to choke the air from your lungs, his little shirt and his realistic hair disguising the true entity hiding inside this most horrifying of killer dolls.
But then I could be wrong, maybe Adam would look just delightful sat on the mantelpiece, and would rarely move of his own accord at all, let alone attack people.
