"Twilight Zone" Talky Tina - considered a very horrifying episode!
What the heck is it about baby dolls that makes people cringe? I know it's human nature to look at something that has a face and categorize it. We see a baby doll, we think baby. What do you think when you think baby? Crying, pooping, delicate if dropped. But, we also should think, cuddly, needy, adorable, fascinating. Yet, with baby dolls, that emotional attachment does not occur.
Someone gave me a baby doll when I was little and I promptly buried it in our pet cemetery over the septic tank.
It's the pretty and pleasant looking ones that most bother me. They remind me of prissy girls in school who are know-it-all's and told-you-so's. I just want to turn their heads around so they aren't giving me that fake smile all the time!
The really strange thing about baby dolls is that time shows on their features just like on humans. Makes you wonder, huh?
The talking ones are the worst! We hear something like this -
Perhaps this doll below is the best reason to be very wary of baby dolls. The really realistic ones are just freaking sick!
Then, there's Doll Island in Mexico. A misanthropic man took his family and moved to a small island where he promptly became spooked and superstitious about a local girl drowning in the canal. He left her dolls as offerings to soothe her wandering spirit. Over decades, the entire island was covered in dolls and the man eventually met a mysterious death - he drowned in the canal!
Even Josh Gates of "Destination Truth" was very wary of these plastic idols.
Some doll movies to further disturb you -
Devil Doll (This old classic ventriloquist doll movie is truly disturbing more than any other doll movie I've seen!)
Child's Play (The 1980s classic with Chucky)
Dead Silence (Ventriloquist dolls at the beck and call of an evil dead master)
Dead of Night (Supernatural tales)
Death Doll (With each death comes a doll)
Perhaps most disturbing is people who voluntarily have doll collections -
