View Full Version : A plethora of eerie and monstrous dolls

Hello fellows. I thought this might interest some of you (http://ifun.ru/comments/joke1782.html)... although these dolls are more gory than eerie, and more proper of a Splatterpunk than Ligotti's eerie fiction, they still would make interesting "objects d'art" in any horror aficionado's collection.

Once, while exploring the woods behind my job I came across a tree with a rotten trunk and a hole about the size of a human head. Peering into the hole I could make out what appeared to be a tiny human hand and then to my horror two eyes peering back at me from the dark.. I recoiled and stepped back only to, against all instincts, reach in and remove a doll that resembled a human infant. It was horrible. There was something about the face and eyes that disturbed me. Time and the elements had darkened the skin and had given the eyes a "sunken" look, almost like a wizened adult face in an infants body. There is nothing in these woods except trees and a stream. Indian arrowheads have been found there, and I once saw a MASSIVE flock of birds land in these trees on their seasonal migration. i would have estimated the number of birds in the tens of thousands and their call was deafening.

I showed my co-worker the doll and he had a similar reaction to mine - revulsion. He was a member of a somewhat popular rock band and asked if he could use it with their stage act. I said, "Okay" glad to be rid of it.

The band broke up soon after and he moved out of state. With or without the doll? I have no idea.

Ghostly voices from Thomas Edison's dolls (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/05/science/thomas-edison-talking-dolls-recordings.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&bicmp=AD&bicmlukp=WT.mc_id&bicmst=1409232722000&bicmet=1419773522000&_r=0)

Here direct link 20 seconds of crackling and strange voices - though I guess the (lacking) quality of the sound contributes as much to its eerieness as the actual voice(s).
