Dolls and toys for kids are meant to be joyful and sweet. They are meant to spark imagination and give children good dreams for their future. Sometimes, though, that all backfires. Who hasn't seen a horror movie (or four) about a doll? Let's face it, some dolls are creepy as hell. Their broken faces seem to cry over better days; their glassy eyes tell of unspeakable horrors. It's almost too much to bear.

There are certain things that are always going to be scary: heading into the basement without the light on, going to the bathroom when the shower curtain is closed, and, finally -- gulp -- spooky old dolls! They are so spooky I need to turn them away from me when I enter the room.

Maybe it's just because I have seen too many horror movies, but dolls, particularly old ones, scare me to death. I just can't shake the feeling that they're watching me and I swear their eyes just moved! If their face is cracked -- okay, stop, stop. It's too much! They give me the chills!

    If I had this doll in my room, I promise you I would never sleep. What is UP with those eyes all rolled back in the head and those arms reaching toward you? Shiver. Night. Mare.

    There is nothing more haunting than an old, weathered doll. Maybe someone loved her at some point, but now she has a face only Satan could adore.

  • Clown of Horror

    We all may not agree on where to live, who to vote for, or what to have for dinner, but most of us are clear about one thing: Clowns are terrifying. This one, in particular, will get into your head, a maniacal laugh will form in your ear. Your world will never be the same.

  • Kimono Boy Terror

    This is the kind of toy someone brings back from their trip to Asia, and it ends up being possessed by the soul of a trapped serial killer and, like, kills all your neighbors in the night. Don't you think?

  • Gray-Haired Killer

    This is a doll I found myself in Tel Aviv. Why does it have gray hair? Why does it look like it's going to kill the other dolls? I may never know the answer to these questions. And I never want to. Shudder.

  • Smiling Monster Doll

    A smile may be worth 1,000 words, but this one says only seven: I will kill you in your sleep. I'll be keeping one eye open from now on.

  • Fat Little Freak

    This fat little monster will scare the living crap out of any child. I am pretty sure I will never be the same after this.

  • Pockmarked Sailor

    Maybe at some point this doll wasn't a horror show. But it is now. Holy hell this is scary.
